Fancy stemware, do you need it?
My husband recently discovered that, if he made friends with some local restaurant owners, we could get Riedel glasses for commercial, rather than retail, prices. A Riedel glass retail is about $30-60. The restaurant versions are about $5-20. So, hey. Now our house is full of really, really nice wine glasses. Go figure.
(Also, because they’re the restaurant versions, they are like indestructibly tough, despite being made from lead crystal and feeling like they’ll break if you so much as breathe on them. So, hey. Bonus!)
