I had a couple of people request to see my collection of vintage cocktail stir sticks or straws. I decided to lump the two together for today's post.
I like to collect vintage straws for crafts. I also like the boxes they come in. These are shorter cocktail straws.
This box contains highball straws.
I like to display my loose straws in old cans.
This packaging features a polka dot giraffe who looks like he is wearing socks.
This is also a very versatile type of straw as it came with how to craft ideas. Miriam Stanley must have been very proud to see her name on this straw box touting her pompoms she made from Glassip straws.
I like the caption by the jack o-lantern that reads "the centerpiece that reflects cheer".
I don't collect swizzle sticks/cocktail stirrers unless they are fun or have crafting potential. I like these little sailors.
These old glasses for Bireley's, which from what I have found was a company that manufactured non-carbonated drinks from fruit juices. I have four of these cute glasses.
That is it for me in straw and bar land. And just as a final note on those Glassip straws...the colors they are available in red, green, blue, pink, tango, amber, orchid and violet. They just don't do colors like that anymore!
If you have an idea for a future collection challenge, leave me a comment and finish the sentence "show me your collection of ____". I'll do my best!
P.S. did you notice this is my 17th collection challenge which I published on the 17th of the month? What a coinkydink...love that word!
