A Hobby For Travelers – Collecting Shot Glasses


When my brother got a great new job that allowed him to have plenty of free time, he came to me to ask for my advice on a new hobby that he could take up. I’m not a fan of the usual stamp or coin collection hobbies that everyone seems to have, so I suggested to him a hobby that I find very interesting and one that I would like to take up myself at some point in time.

I’m talking about collecting shot glasses. Now, this is really two hobbies in one, because it’s actually all about travel. You travel to as many different places as you can and pick up shot glasses from the souvenir shops there. You could, of course, sit at home and order them from somewhere, but that’s not much fun, is it? This hobby is really great for someone like my brother who loves to travel and also has the time to do so as he works only three days a week (I know, lucky him!). Also, you could collect shot glasses that contain the logos of your favourite sports teams, universities, hotels and so on. An important thing to keep note of is that shot glasses usually cost just around two to four dollars each and the only reason for you to ever pay any more than that is if you’re sure that it’s a rare and authentic piece.

Once you have a good collection of shot glasses, you’re going to want to display them. It’s important to display them the right way because the value you attach to your collection is going to be judged by how they’re put on display. What I told my brother was to get a display case made specially for displaying shot glasses. These are wall hanging cabinets made from wood with a glass door and sometimes glass shelves. After some research, I found that a good place online to get shot glass display cases from this website.

I recommend this hobby to anyone who travels because I think it’s a great way to remember all the places you’ve visited. The collection, displayed in your living room, will be a great conversation starter and something that you can really be proud of.
