My Favorite Collection

I'm not sure when it started.  I think my sister may have bought one when I was young and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world, especially since I couldn't use it.  To be honest, I still rarely use them, especially not these - and you can ask the people who I have barked at for touching them! 


I just got this case off Amazon, it can hold up to 144 shot glasses.  Every other shelf can be removed to accommodate the taller glasses, I had to take out two.  I admit I was a little disappointed that some of my glasses that were a teeny bit over-sized couldn't fit on the regular shelves.  It was a tight fit for the regular ones.  I would have liked a tiny bit more space because some of the ones on that middle shelf were only a milometer larger than the others.  But all in all I am very satisfied and SO happy that my glasses are out of the attic and on display. 

My Florida, New York, and South Carolina glasses could probably take up half the case by themselves.  

I'm going to try to think of a clever way to feature a different shot glass every now and then, sort of like how Nani over at The Chronicles of Nani does her Monday Mug Shot.  Every one of these glasses tells a story and I'd love to have the opportunity to share them!

Oh! And I have 110 in there (only three are duplicates) and space to fit three more comfortably, but I bet I could cram at least one more on each of the shelves... those three remaining spots have done nothing to cramp my desire to continue collecting!

  1. You can always start a second case. Your collection is so colorful, and it it nice that you can share it with everyone now. Have a good day.

    1. Thank Marti! I definitely plan on getting another case when the time comes. It took me so long to finally get the one I have, ha, I figure in a couple years I'll get a second. :)

    1. Good eyes! Yes, there is definitely a Dopey one in there. I believe it says "I'm with Grumpy". Ha. I usually go to FL once a year with the in-laws so a good bit of my collection is Florida/Disney!

  3. I remember reading this, Jennifer, I remember writing a comment, I don't remember reading the shout out. :( It was an active and tired Nani day! Sorry, let's try again.

    I love your collection! Like my mugs, they are a wonderful huge testament to all of the wonderful things you've done, so far! I think anything similar to the Mug Shot for a collection is a great idea! I know a few people who collect spoons and my husband collects t-shirts. He wouldn't tell you that, but I fold and put away the laundry - he collects t-shirts. :)

    I'm flattered that you like the idea and appreciate the shout out! Thank you!

    1. Haha, my husband collects shirts too! I also collect spoons. I started that collection back in 5th grade and bought my first two at Sagamore Hill, Teddy Roosevelt's home on Long Island, it was on a class trip. My collection recently resurfaced, and my parents bought me a couple on their last trip and I think I even purchased one when I went to Texas. I will be getting something to display those soon as well!
