THE COLLECTOR

Daphne

Fun and Functional Souvenirs

with Daphne from Ft Lauderdale, FL

How long have you been collecting these items?
I have been collecting shot glasses for about 7 years.
Give us a little background on your collection
Mostly my shot glasses are from cities around the United States. Some are very colorful and have printing on them that represent well-known landmarks from that particular city.
How did you develop an interest in this particular collection?
I always thought that shot glasses were cute and just fun. So once I was visiting my grandmother in Orlando, I saw a nice colorful shot glass and decided to purchase one for a friend.
What approach did you take in starting this particular collection?
I bought a Florida shot glass for a friend and liked it so much, I ended up keeping it! Then whenever I traveled I started picking up new ones. I have even received them as gifts from friends since they know that I collect them.
 
What are your favorite specialty items in your collection?
My favorites are the tall slender shot glasses. I especially like the one from Planet Hollywood in Paris that a friend brought back for me. And I really like the Playboy one because the bunny is outlined in shiny crystals.
What other collections or hobbies do you have?
I'm starting a African and Asian mask collection. I will definitely display it once I get enough pieces together.
How do you choose what type of glass you want to add to your collection.
I usually choose the ones that appeal to my eyes. I like the ones that are simple, or frosted. But at the same time I do like some of the more colorful designs.
Do you plan to continue collecting these glasses and how do you keep the collection interesting.
One thing I would like to start collecting is all the U.S. cities' football team shot glasses. Since I love football I might as well combine the two! I was recently in Cleveland, Ohio and purchased a Cleveland Browns shot glass to get me started.
