I have to admit — I like a cocktail every now and then — but it has been a while since I’ve actually done shots. All that aside, when I saw this cute little shot glass caddy with polka dot glasses at my local antique mall, I knew it had to come live with me.
Sadly, it only has 5 matching glasses — and one of those has a chip on the rim, so it shouldn’t be used — but the polka dots totally make up for that, right? The shot glasses are also more narrow than your average shot glass, so finding a few replacements might be difficult. I’ll have to keep an eye out on Ebay, Etsy and at yard sales this summer.
I was thinking — if I could find two more glasses that were this size, the set wouldn’t look too strange. Maybe if I find glasses the color of one of the polka dots they would look like an intentional mismatched set — red, yellow, clear?
Even if I can’t find another shot glass or two for this set, I still enjoy its retro appeal. The set fits nicely in the glass cupboard side of my Broyhill Brasilia dining room hutch — looks like it found a home with me.
