THRIFTING GLASSWAREBefore running to the store to buy new glassware, we suggest visiting your local thrift store. Not only can you find an incredible variety, it's also cheaper and better for the environment.     REUSING GLASSWAREHave an extra spaghetti sauce container, Topo Chico bottle, or (in our case) olive jar hanging out in your recycling?
