With Father’s Day around the corner, it seems a good time to explore some gifts for the barware enthusiast in your life!
Vintage Beer Glasses. We got these many years ago from Elise Abrams Antiques. A search on eBay for Vintage Beer glasses by Libbey will turn up some interesting choices, or try Pilsner Glasses by Libbey at Replacements.
Bar Carts. This is the Truman from Williams Sonoma. I saw some very nice ones at World Market, too!
Vintage Whiskey Glasses – for sipping whiskey with a splash of water. These are actually juice glasses in the Buttercup pattern by Fostoria. Replacements is an excellent source for elegant Depression Glass. Search for juice glasses and narrow your choices to Cambridge, Fostoria and Tiffin-Franciscan. The creamer in the same pattern makes a great add-on, as it can be used for the touch of water.
Modern Whiskey Glasses. This is the Graham Tumbler, perfect for sipping whiskey. The Graham Rocks glass works well for those who prefer their whiskey over ice.
Mixology Books. These are all from Cocktail Kingdom, a great source for modern cocktail accoutrements.
Vintage Bar Plates. These are the Florentine English Pub plates by Crown Ducal, acquired on eBay a couple of years ago. Crown Ducal also made an Art Deco set of six which can sometimes be had on eBay. There are lots of modern bar plates to be had, too, from places like Pier 1, Crate & Barrel and Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Fun Coasters. This set is from Bed, Bath & Beyond. I especially love “It’s all Fun and Games until someone ends up in a Cone.” They have lots of great choices for coasters, and other barware, too.
Mason Jar Mugs with Handles. Great for picnics, outdoor patio dining, or to take to the beach. They’re readily available from any number of places including Amazon.com. You can get a lidded version with a drinking straw, too.
Modern cocktail tools, like the gorgeous Yarai Seamless Mixing Glass, Bar Spoons, Strainers and Jiggers. All from The Cocktail Kingdom.
Have a wonderful Monday!
I’m sharing this post with Between Naps on the Porch.
What a fun post. My father doesn’t drink enough to need barware as a Father’s Day gift but I am looking at all of your treasures as ideas for me. I live in the country and one of my outbuildings is a chicken coop. I don’t have chickens so I am planning to build a bar in there. I have been finding bar gear when thrifting lately so now it is time to put that pinterest board to use and get going on building the bar. Thanks for sharing.
Lorri, that sounds like so much fun! Please keep me posted on how your thrifting goes. I’d love to see your finds and how the bar comes together.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting.
