This summer I’ve gone on three trips with my parents in their RV. The first was to Nebraska where I visited my oldest daughter and my dad attended the College Baseball World Series. The second was a quickie trip through eastern Colorado and western Kansas (MUCH more fun than it sounds.) The third trip was the best, up to our family’s all-time favorite place in the Colorado Rockies. On this trip I made a fun new find from one of my favorite shops in Carbondale, European Antiques.
Contrary to it’s name, European Antiques doesn’t sell many antiques. The owner stocks the store with an eclectic assortment of modern kitchen/home wares, beautiful linens, funky cards and a wide variety of gorgeous scarves along with the expected western themed home wares popular with the out-of-state second home owner set. My favorite discovery this year was simple and inexpensive, plastic wineglasses from a company called Govino.
Govino originally created their stemless, shatterproof wineglasses (comes in two sizes plus a flute) for professional winemakers to showcase their wines. I’m happy they decided to make them available to the public too. It feels much nicer to be sitting in a campground or on your back porch or out on a picnic sipping your favorite wine, cocktail or sparkling water out of a pretty glass instead of the old red plastic cup I mainly associate with college students playing beer pong.
They do have a couple drawbacks. They don’t stack and you have to hand wash them. On the plus side they are recyclable and made from BHA-free plastic.
