I wanted to start off this group as I’ve been collecting shot glasses now for 6 years. I thought it would be an easy collection to move around with me, unlike hundreds of CD’s or DVD’s. However, as the collection grows, maybe not the brightest idea for a regular home mover. The group, I hope, will also give me a look into other people’s collections and a laugh at some of the nights on a few shots……

Anyway, I’ll start taking photos of my collection over the next couple of weeks and count up how many I’ve bought or been given as a gift and post on here.

So - how many in your collection?

Jay, fantastic idea - starting a collection of glass items in the hope they will be easy to move about! You should consider a collection of cardboard boxes or suitcases in future.

Anyway, I have never taken the trouble to count my collection but I would think it must number about 4 - I will take some time out this evening to count them. Can I assume that it is ok to put up pictures of shot glasses in action even though they are not from a collection as such (unless you would call glasses owned by a bar a collection)? I'm thinking of people drinking from fairly non-descript shot glasses - where perhaps the shot glass itself is not the focus of the image?

Mr Mueller, the more shots of people steaming, drinking out of a shot glass the better! Even licking salt of the back of other people's hands makes me laugh! :-)

I have no freaking idea on the number... They are in or on cabinets, shelves, drawers, boxes etc. Some packed away in boxes... If I ever get them all unpacked again you might want the boxes for your new easy to move collection... might even have an old suitcase to sweeten the deal.

I have about 100. Give or take 10. Thats a crap load. It all started when my friend told me about collecting shot glasses. She said that your supposed to collect 21 for your 21st b-day and have a drink from each. Well, I got way beyond 21 for my b-day (glasses not drinks) and have collected a shot glass from every place my fiance and I go since then. Its addicting.

My collection started spontaneously. I had a few sitting on a shelf left over from a Friday night. As people would visit me I guess they would see them and think I collected them. So as they'd go places they'd pick me up one and bring it to me. Pretty soon it got up to 25. Then 50. Then 100. I loaded 131 pics some with four & five glasses. And I didn't photograph them all. Some are just plain glasses so I left them out. Or ones damaged by the dishwasher. So I'm guesstimating I have in total around 150 -160 glasses now.
