Where to purchase etched Floral drinking glasses?

Hi! I'm looking for some help Christmas shopping! I'm trying to find a set of drinking glasses for my wife. We love Hawaii and I'd like to surprise her with a set of etched floral drinking glasses for everyday use. I'm not looking for fancier stemed wine glasses (but will consider them if I can't find a tumbler type.) We like Hibiscus, but a mix of diferent flower types wuld be nice, like Bird of Paradise, Plumeria, etc. I have searched Amazon and e-bay and many other sites without luck. One image search found these: http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view;_ylt=A0PDoS4rtLpQSD0ALjaJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3Fp%3Dvintage%2Betched%2Bglasses%2Bhibiscus%26ei%3DUTF-8%26fr%3Dyfp-t-701%26tab%3Dorganic%26ri%3D3&w=500&h=375&imgurl=galleryplus.ebayimg.com%2Fws%2Fweb%2F221148519007_1_0_1.jpg&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fgotfreeshipping.com%2Fstore%2Fvintage-glass-tumblers&size=27.6+KB&name=etched+tropical+floral+glass+vintage+tumblers+signed+rom+par+hibiscus+...&p=vintage+etched+glasses+hibiscus&oid=7aaa7359355f3bd6509084c536e4497b&fr2=&fr=yfp-t-701&tt=etched%2Btropical%2Bfloral%2Bglass%2Bvintage%2Btumblers%2Bsigned%2Brom%2Bpar%2Bhibiscus%2B...&b=0&ni=21&no=3&ts=&tab=organic&sigr=11n3u2n7p&sigb=13l7trfb6&sigi=11lg4dd6s&.crumb=3ekPNSkGinV but they sold long ago! Does anyone know of a store on one of the islands that has a web site I could check out to purchase a set? I'm looking to spend less than $50 if that is possible! Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you, Westernmass

Aloha,

Sounds pretty. I would check the Hilo Hattie, Nordstrom, Macy's, and ABC websites. I'm sure others will have suggestions, too.

If I see any, I'll let you know.

Good luck.

Aloha

I've seen them in Hilo Hattie. Not in M&M, though.

I've seen glassware that is very similar at the Nohea Gallery in the Moana Surfrider. Never been to their main store at the Ward Warehouse, but might want to get in touch 808-596-0074.Their website doesn't begin to display everything they carry, but take a look:

Also, probably a bit of a project, but the prices are very reasonable (no first-hand knowledge, but my wife received a set of glasses, done by this company, for her 20th anniversary at work);

P.S. Think/hope this will help with the original link:

Thank you all for your responses! I really appreciate it!

I checked out the links and saw the beautiful goblets. They are an option, but was hoping to find daily drinking glasses. I could not find those on any of the links mentioned or at Macy's, Nortrom's or ABC stores. Am I looking in the wrong spot. I'll keep searching the sites. Maybe they are just not on the web sites?

Thanks again,

Westernmass

This may be something that you just have to keep your eyes open for. We'd probably have better luck here on the West Coast.

BTW - loved our vacations in Western Mass!

Sorry for the bogus leads Westernmass; the first could have been one of those "here today/gone tomorrow" items (we've had our share of disappointments; one especially memorable occurred when thinking it over at lunch).

Found a couple of potentials on eBay yesterday. Couldn't access the item pages despite messing around with my machine for a couple of hours & even installing another browser.

Anyway here is the main category ( http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_sacat=0&_from=R40&_nkw=hawaiian+etched+glass&rt=nc ); scroll down to the third and sixth (as I type) listings and see if acceptable. If you can access the specific pages, I'd appreciate a browser (etc.) tip!

Now, if I can just come up with Christmas gift for my better half...other than a new set of tires.

Well, see if this link will click:

BeachesMountains,

Thank you very much for your follow up! I ended up purchasing the 5 inch glasses. They are very close to what I had in mind and since they seem to be hard to find, I figured I better grab them! If it's the thought that counts, she should be thrilled LOL! I managed to work my way into the web site, but I don't think I could discribe how I did it!

As for the snow tires, I can't speak for your better half. Here is another item I ordered for my wife that might give you an idea (I used our pictures from our trip to Kauai): staples.com/sbd/…

Mahalo!

BLBL,

Thanks for the help! Glad you had some nice visits to western Massachusetts! We've had some great trips to California too! Wish we hit the Power Ball. The budget doesn't allow us to travel as much as we'd like!
