We went to a very large and well organized annual church garage sale, at 7AM this Sat, they had about 50 glasses, but all were either very common or too exensive - $1 type glasses for $3 or $4. I did get there a half dozen yellow McD plastic cups, action series, for a quarter each. We went all over the area to garage sales, since many people have sales nearby, as the church draws a huge crowd. No glasses to speak of - but later about 1PM was driving back from work and saw a sale near that area which had some 80's Preakness and one Belmont glass - 4 diff ones, when I asked how much the guy said one dollar - which turned out to be for all 4. He had some other 80's Preakness which were in another area which I bought for 50 cents each, so got about 10 mixed 80's horse racing glasses from Preakness, 1 Arlington and 1 belmont Stakes. I also found a very interesting Tail Twister Ball descriptive measure glass about 8-10 oz size, from 1946, and a weird mug from Studebaker National Museum in South Bend, IN with a Pepsi logo for a dollar - an unusual combination.
