Snack Plates and Cups


I passed up these six oval Sandwich Glass snack plate and cup sets last week at the Boone Square Mini Mall (a local flea market/antique mall) because they are very small. They are 8 1/4 X 6 3/4 inch ovals with a groove for the cup. That does not a lot of space for a snack, in my opinion. I kept thinking about these because: (1) they were only marked $12 for the 12 piece set (2) I already have 2 of these sets I picked up in a Tennessee antique shop so these would make 8 and (3) I have 22 round matching salad plates. I kept wondering how I could use them with afternoon tea when it finally hit me! I can use them for a first course of a cup of soup with fancy crackers on the side. So now I have eight matching Sandwich Glass snack sets. Great logic, I thought!
