cheri, those look like the free glasses that came with my serpis order from sc about 6 months ago. At least I got SOMETHING useful out of that serpis order...

These are my Target "absinthe" glasses. I measure the dose of absinthe by the rings...the amount of water by my mood....

There's a real cool Apothecary shop in the French Quarter that sells all kinds of "cylindrical Tea jars" just like that one. I forget the name of it, but it's history dates back to the 1800's and used to be a real busy shop. All of the liquids in the windows were changed to the color red to indicate Warning of the Plague outbreak. Interesting.

Polish glassworks are exporting some really beautiful and cheaply priced glasses to the U.S.A. and beyond. I've seen one that has an honest-to-goodness reservoir -- and the circumference is just right for most absinthe spoons.

About four years ago, you could find panelled bistro glasses at "Pic N' Save" for 99 cents. They looked quite a bit like antique absinthe glasses. Pic N' Save rocked ... is it still in business?

Right in time for summer (for northern hemisphere people, anyway), it's Absinthe Central at your local Target!

Enjoy the timeless elegance of their cheap-ass gear -- for those of us who can barely afford absinthe to begin with...

The Target Fountain, or "Cylindrical Tea Jar", as they're forced to label it -- but we know better:

Target Glasses: Many will work, but try the Charisma and Tartan water goblets.

Still hoping something will emerge in the spoons category, perhaps a stylish metal 'spatula'. But 'real' spoons from SC or Steve in SF could scarcely be cheaper...
