VTT It's the Real Thing

Coca-Cola is the "Real Thing".

This sign was in front of the building where I took the picture of the bench from yesterday's post. I'd love to have a sign like this.

Because I'd love to add it to these glasses.

I've had these Coca-Cola glasses for about 20 years. And recently, at an Antique shop I found this straw holder.

On the bottom of the straw holder, it says ............

The Coca-Cola Company 1992.

So although it is not really vintage, it makes a fine addition to my glasses.

Please be sure to stop by Colorado Lady's blog and visit the other blogs participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday.


Have a great day!

Cutest pink sign!!!

I've always loved Coke collectibles - the old familiar shaped glasses, how cool. My dad, 2 brothers, and 2 uncles worked for Coke several years while I was growing up, so it's a special item, close to my heart.

I've always wanted the great straw holders...

The first thing I thought of when I saw the glasses was "Have a Coke and a smile"....I guess advertising works :-)
I love the straw holder you found to match the glasses.

I never drink Coke (or any other pop) but I like the Coke thingies. I have a collection of Coke ads.

The Coke items have become very expensive in antique malls. My sister has a lot of different things from the Coke company that go way back. Her father-in-law worked for them.

Your straw holder is a great addition. So very cute with the glasses. I remember having some of those glasses not too long ago. Do you remember the 7-up ones that were upside down? Very hard to clean!

I start every morning with a coke like others start theirs with a cup of coffee. I love your goodies. Things do go better with coke.
