As we make the transition from college life to veritable adulthood, many of us acquire things—things that promise to make our newfound homes feel more mature, more legitimate, more put-together. We trade our $10 table lamps for chicer fixtures. We swap our too-small, wine-stained rugs for bigger, printed options. And we upgrade our hosting essentials, discarding the mismatched plastic cups we’ve acquired for legitimately cute glassware—something that would’ve been absolutely inadvisable in a dorm, but now seems pretty damn essential.
Stocking up on cute glassware is a bold move no matter your age or circumstance. Because glass is breakable. Haphazardly toss something in the sink, accidentally kick something over or leave your cabinets too disorganized, and you could end up with a shattered mess before your brain has had time to process what, exactly, you just did. Any time you buy something so fragile, so easily ruined, you’re volunteering immense trust in yourself. You’re making your future self a promise that this purchase won’t be for naught—that you won’t destroy this semi-expensive thing within a matter of weeks, days or even hours. That you’ve got this. And you definitely do. Because goddamnit, you’re an adult now.
Of course, this beeline to maturity would be easier to come by if you knew where to find cute glassware to invest in. Shopping for something for the first time is always hard—but it’s even harder when the thing you’re buying is so delicate it could probably break if you squeezed it too aggressively. Thankfully, the internet has made it pretty simple to stock up on cute glassware—you just have to know where to look.
