BOOPIE LOVE

If you are a regular reader of A La Carte then you know I have a 'thing' for Boopie!  I bought some last year on the
Worlds Longest Yard Sale 
Paid a little more then I wished for the two glasses that match but I was in love

I did a post about Boopie and how to tell if it's Candlewick or not

I even found green boopies and paid $1.97 per glass...yikes!
So imagine me just stopping in the Salvation Army store...walking around and what to do I see....
BOOPIE
I found seven of these cute little glasses 
 I only took a picture of 4 & no I'm not sure why :)
Oh the Boopie, wait I don't have a basket
I ran up to the front of the store grabbed a basket and as I'm coming back for MY BOOPIE  what do I see???  Another person's hand hovering near my boopie...I tell this very nice lady that I was getting these and just had to go get a basket....she backed away.  I mean don't get between Linda and her Boopie
Did I mention they were only 49 cents each!!
I'm joining Diann for

What cool glasses!! I had never heard of Boopie! Hang around, I might learn something!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Boopie for $1.97 is unheard of!!! You are just TOO lucky! Do you have any of the red boopie???

Red Couch Recipes said...

I also have never heard of Boopie, but I can see how you would be attracted too, and "aggressive :)" about your Boopie! Joni

Ann in the UP said...

You crack me up! I can see you going into Full Smackdown Mode over the great price on Boopies! I won't be fighting you for them as I have No Room For anything more. It is decided.

Scarlett Fontaine said...

I've not heard of Boopie either, but is a very cool name and they are lovely! Scarlett x

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Wow! That was a good deal and close call! So glad you did have to put brawl for them. LOL!
I missed your post about the difference between them will have to check that out, because they all look the same to me.

An amazing find! I am going to start checking
my local favorite thrift. I never think to look
at the glasses for some reason! Thank you for
the post!

Diann said...

I can soooo picture you telling that woman basically to back away from your boopie! LOL but, who could blame you! At .49 cents each, its worth showing you mean business! LOL Thank you for joining TTTF. Have a great weekend Linda!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Great find Linda and I'm glad the lady didn't give you any trouble! Happy Weekend:@)

Jane said...

What a great find and price!! I really enjoyed the part about telling the woman they were yours :) I bet you gasped when you saw her reaching for those!!

Cindy said...

I love boopie also. I have a lot of the green boopies. I can't believe you found some for on $1.97. They are so expensive around here. :-( I'm happy for you that you were able to add to your collection at such a good price!

BECKY said...

Linda, what a riot! I've never heard of Boopie, either! And I can just see you NOT letting anyone else grab your boopies! :D

Ames said...

You crack me up! I pity the fool that stands between you and a Boopie. :)

I like the green one's the best. You know, I was in an antique store and a dealer was marking Boopie's with a rediculous price. I mean really rediculous or I would not have said "That's kind of high for Boopie glasses!" and she declared them Candlewick. I said maybe you should check again. I have some just like them at home and they are Boopies. So you weren't the only person to be confused about the difference between Boopie and Candlewick.

Linda I think you are lucky when it comes to finding cool stuff inexpensively!~Ames

Hi Linda Boop!!!
You are not the only one loving boopie glass from reading the comments, I'd say there are many.
I know that whenever someone has it in the shop, it sells right away.

hugs,
Sissie

Jan@southernjunkin' said...

Oh what fun! I love boopie glass! I collect pink depression glass! And I'm one of your new followers!
Blessings!

Marigene said...

Wow, you sure got a super duper good deal on those Boopies, Linda...being in the right place at the right time also helps!

Susan said...

Linda, awesome finds!!

Susan said...

Hi Linda.....49 cents each??????????? That was a steal and a half. Good thing the lady backed away. I was afraid you were going to say she was determined to get them, too. Then what would have happenbed? Yikes. So glad you got them. susan

Annesphamily said...

You are funny Linda! You know you never shop at the thrift store without a basket! Never! You are too cute with your Boopies! I like the green too! Very pretty! Hope that grandboy is wonderful! I bet he is growing quickly! Hugs Anne

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

got it! Don't come between Linda and her boopie! Thanks for the education on them vs candlewick!

Kim @ Touch of Nostalgia said...

I love boopie also. :) When my Mom passed away last year one of the things I cherish is the four ruby boopie glasses I brought home with me. They are of juice glass size. I have one green like in your photo above. A friend was moving and was going to pitch it...it came home with me. :) I'd love to pick up more of the ruby ones but have not come across any.

tammylovesdishes said...

Great Boopie buys! 49 cents! Are you kidding? At that price i wouldn't have let anyone get between me and those boopies either! I recently found six together at a thrift shop and was thrilled to get them. They weren't 49 cents, but they weren't too bad either.

I don't have any of the pretty colored boopies such as your lovely green ones. I'll be on the lookout now!

Keetha Broyles said...

I have and love Boopie too!!!!

Ninny said...

You go girl! Grab those boopies right outta her hands! LOL I have never seen any boopies in our thrift stores around here, and if I did, they'd be an outrageous price. Even $1.97 a piece sounds good to me. Great finds!

Pondside said...

I had no idea what 'boopie' was til I read this. I believe there's some in my mum's cupboard - I'll have to look next time I'm home.

Anne Lorys - Fiona and Twig said...

Never heard of Boopie before, hmph! :-)
I woulda thrown her a "back off, sista" look just to be on the safe side!

Enjoy your weekend!
Hugs,
Anne

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

How pretty, Linda...and what a steal! I have done the same thing with something I love at the thrift store! lol Once I saw someone's hand reaching around me to grab what I was looking at! Whaaat?? Happy weekend!...hugs...Debbie

~~Carol~~ said...

I never knew I had Boopies until Miss Keetha told me so. I love them, and 49 cents is a fantastic deal!

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! I love the word 'Boopie' and had never heard it before you! I knew, or thought I knew what the candlewick was. I still love the word "Boopie" the best! :) Cute collection too.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

pamq said...

Oh, what a fine picture this brings to my mind...

You doing battle for your Boopie!

I have never heard them called Boopie before.

I think there might be some in my Mom's cupboard---I will have to check that out..............

So glad you got your Boopie and didn't have to arm wrestle for it!!!!!!!

Boopies are really cute Linda. Glad you scored some more...enjoy:)

Van said...

Like others, I'd never heard of "Boopie" - you learn something new every day! :)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

How precious...and I learned something new and something else to look for! Enjoy your week! ♥

Linda said...

You have a wonderful collection, Linda! I never knew the difference between the types...it was fun to read about it on your linked post!
