Drinking glasses

We are looking to buy new drinking glasses for Christmas. Dh really wants large resturant or pub style glasses. I have a set of plaid Ralph Lauren glasses but sadly I have lost two to cracks. Where do you shop for glasses? We have a shopping date weekend planned the first of December in OKC.

My drinking glasses are emptied Starbucks iced coffee containers, both the small ones and the 16 oz. size.

Oh, and I still have a few Christmas cups left over from when I was teaching.

I got my past ones at Costco. They are actually clear acrylic, but look like glass. So far they are grandchild-proof.

I love the large glasses I've gotten from places like Marshall's or Ross or TJMaxx! Those are my go-to places for dish ware like glasses and silverware

I drink out of my insulated Igloo glass all the time now. Love it!

But when I select pretty glasses for a nice table setting I like to see how they feel in my hand. I want it to be comfortable. Then I think about if it is pretty or not.

I would go to Macy's, Dillard's, JC Penny, Walmart, Target.... Seems like they would have good selections.

This is not something I would order online because I really care about how it feels in my hand and its weight. I don't want anything too heavy.

I drive across town to the Libby Glass Company factory. They have a store attached to the factory. There are so many to choose from.

I have some great heavy glasses I found in Mexico 30 years ago. Hand blown, heavy, wonderful! I've seen them at Pier 1 once in a while.

At our cabin, we use pint canning jars. Heavy duty, easy to clean.

Do you have a HomeGoods? They have beautiful things at great prices. I was just looking at glasses the other day.

Thank you for all the suggestions. I typically go to Collards but latelybtheir glasses seem on the smaller side. We actually found our last set at Homegoods but they only had a few of each design so the selection was small.
I don't know why I didn't think of TJMaxx or Ross.

We use the canning jars with handles. I think they look good with the Fiestaware we use. I got most of them at Goodwill. I do have some without handles. Great size!
