Picardie, simple and nearly indestructible

Shopping for college is something I'll be doing with Isabel next year. Seeing these iconic tumblers on Open Sky made me think way back to my own college shopping. Truly, this set of glassware is a reminder of how a good design can last forever.  I purchased my first set of Picardie in 1978 (that was 34 years ago) and now, my family uses the same set every day.  They have been through all of my college years, my first apartment, my first condo, and now they reside in the kitchen I call home.  I've lost only one glass in those 34 years!  I even found the tiny 2 oz. size in Quebec eight years ago. Love them.
