The Heyday of Vintage Drinking Glasses Walter T. Lemiski, M.A.
I simply cannot stand drinking out of anything but glass! It drives me up the wall to be served a cold brew at a Blue Jay, Raptor or Maple Leaf game in a plastic cup. It kind of adds insult to the injury of the outrageous prices charged for a pint of suds! A fine glass beer mug or pilsener glass is absolutely the best way to present and enjoy a refreshing pint.
When I began researching glass barware in earnest a number of years back I was absolutely staggered by the sheer volume of products produced and the extraordinary variety of those items. Undoubtedly like many others I began by searching for items that I recalled seeing in my dad’s bar some forty years ago
Waterworks James Trautman
Saturday was the best day when I was a kid in Elizabeth, New jersey. No school, and the weekly bus trip up town. The routine was to have a turkey lunch at the Woolworth 5 & 10. I can still see myself sitting at the counter rushing through the meal, so that I could run to the toy area. I can still picture the wooden counter with bins full of soldiers, cars, boats, kites, yo-yo's and water guns. In the mid-'50s this was the place to be. Each week a new supply of plastic water guns arrived.

Canadian Football League Collectibles Jim Trautman
Twice a year at the Toronto International Centre - Canada's largest sports collectibles show is held. The show features hundreds of dealers from across Canada and the United States. The main focus has been on hockey collectibles, but in recent years material connected to the Canadian Football League has been building a rapidly increasing committed fan collecting base. And although it does not still get the attention that hockey receives it is a growth area. In the past 55 years collectible material on the Canadian Football League has included; picture cards, team yearbooks, posters, records, jerseys, games, pocket schedules, pennants and other team and sponsor issued material. Of course most fans think of the Grey Cup Program, but there is league material sold at the CFL Hall of Fame in Hamilton, Ontario connected to the yearly induction of players and builders of the game. The souvenir shop inside the hall is filled with material from all the teams. In addition, it is a great place to pickup older material at very reasonable prices. .
The History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash
The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca Cola® and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...
Cranberry Glass By Tony Shaman
What can you give the person that has everything? The answer is not as difficult as you might think. If the individual on your gift list is a collector of antiques, or even recent-vintage items, the answer is even simpler: cranberry glass. In England, and in Europe generally, the delicate, pink-hued glass still goes by its original name, ruby glass. That older name, incidentally, aptly describes a product that also makes an ideal gift for couples celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. Conversely, in North America ruby has given way to 'cranberry,' a term that more closely describes the glass's delicate, pink colour. There are several explanations why the term 'cranberry' was adopted on this side of the Atlantic.
