I'm sure all my male readers are getting tired of the jewelry posts, so I'll get back to blogging about homemaking :)
On my weekly thrift store outing I found this depression era pressed glass snack set of four plates. I thought they would be perfect for kids since they have the little dividers and the handles.
I couldn't believe it when I noticed this little detail
Did people really need to have a cigarette holder and ashtray built into their plates -- cigarette smoke billowing up into their faces and ashes flying into their food?
We've come such a long way.
I decided it works better as a chopstick holder.
We tested them out tonight
Even Matt (who isn't usually the most observant when it comes to these kinds of things) noticed them right away and said he really likes them.
They were PERFECT as sushi plates. My "ashtray" held exactly the right amount of soy sauce.
If you're itching to get yourself, or someone you love one of these very cool sushi/snack sets, just check your local Goodwill, thrift store, junk shop, ETSY.
Do not purchase it from an antique dealer. When I Googled to find out what they were originally used for I saw some dealers charging upwards of $55 for sets.
