Plastic and bright hues.
Christine's collection criteria.
I love old built-ins and hutches because they have great big deep drawers that hold a lot of stuff. I keep these plastic mugs lined up in one of our dining room buffet drawers. These drawers hold most of my entertaining goods, and these mugs have come in wonderfully handy for serving an array of beverages.
I'm sure that they served up egg coffee at many church basement functions. Some of them have a dab of pink nail polish on the bottom-probably to identify the owner, or possibly to mark the winner of the door prize. "Ok, ladies, finish up your coffee, then check the bottom of your mug to see if you've won Mildred's hand crocheted doily!" Not a bad idea for my next party.......
