Vintage Snack Sets

 
I am "trying" to control my habit of collecting treasures,
or junk to some folks.  I've been focusing my "collecting" on
more specific items.
But the memories of my mother and aunts using snack sets
similar to this vintage Indiana Tiara Glassware when serving  punch and cookies
or coffee and cake lady friends,
"made" me purchase several (I haven't counted) of these sets recently.

 
The plate has an indention for the cup on the right below. 
Attending a recent event where ladies were sitting here and there,
 juggling teacups and saucers and snack plates
convinced me not to pass up this bargain vintage find. 
 
My mother, Aunt Ida, and Aunt Mary would have thought
the purchase was justified, too.
I just "know" it.

I am addicted to snack sets, too! I got married in 1976 and received several sets as shower gifts. We used them at Tupperware parties, LOL. When they went out of vogue, I guess I just hid mine in a cupboard instead of carting them to Goodwill. When I inherited my mothers, she had a set that is milk glass - my new obsession. I now have 3 milk glass snack sets. My dream is to serve a cup of soup and a half sandwich or quiche on them in my day dream tea room.

Absolutely! I love those snack sets, too, and the memories just make them that much more special.

They are perfect for a salad and a cup of soup. Yours are so pretty!

My mother always loved these snack sets. One of her best friends gave us a snack set as a wedding gift and though I don't use it, I just can't seem to get rid of it either.

Snack sets are so convenient, you must admit!
