The popularity of glass items, especially those made of milk glass, spurred the creation of many glass manufacturing companies in the United States, France, and England during the mid-1800s. These companies produced milk glass products that were used as tableware, bowls, covered dishes, specialty items, vases, and figurines.
Milk glass is an opaque or translucent milky white or colored glass, blown or pressed into a wide variety of shapes.
First made in Venice in the 16th century, colors included blue, pink, yellow, brown, black, and the white – which lead to its popularity.

We received this amazing selection of The Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Series, featuring The Three Investigators: Jupiter “Jupe” Jones, Peter “Pete” Crenshaw, and Robert “Bob” Andrews. The series is for young teens. But the plots and suspense are intriguing.

This is just one example of the intriguing books you’ll find at Bahoukas Antiques. So stop in today and browse. Maybe you’ll find a book or two that will encourage your young readers at home. And, of course, we’re here and we’re watchin’ for ya!
