    My target might get a piece of super rare brewarania that's been worn on the line but maybe, if they do I hope they like non glass stuff!

    I have two glasses, and trying to decide on what else i want to fill the box with. I will be pushing the deadline by aiming to ship third week of January.

    It looks like my target is going to receive his package before the new year.

    I'm going for this as well. I can't hit many wants unfortunately so I'm going for a hefty box of hopefully good stuff!

    Do most of the people in these just simply move along unwanted glasses from their collection? Judging by what I read and see above, that seems to be the case. Just curious.

    I know I'm not doing that. Well, one thing I'm sending is an "extra" from my collection, but it's not at all unwanted. It's just something I was saving for a possible trade, and is now going towards this. It's also on my target's want list so it all works out.

    How on earth is that a judgement based on what you've read above? Multiple people have explicitly said that they're hoping to pick up a glass/have just gotten a glass to send/found something to hit their target's wants/etc. It sounds like people are going through a fair amount of effort to acquire and send nice, interesting stuff.

    I don't own glasses I don't want. I just simply can't afford to pay for glasses online plus shipping to hit multiple wants unfortunately. That clocks in around 20-25 a glass. I'd love to send out a complete box of wants but can't so I've been hitting different stores and buying glasses I'd like to get or already have and love. I can't imagine my target will be unhappy.

    Basically my box will consist of at least one of each of the following:
    - something I've gotten in my journeys out of state
    - something local that I have access to, but that can't be bought online
    - something I went out of my way for just for this
    - something I did get in an online haul, but that's random enough that no one would ever expect it

    Geez, just asking. Some comments about no more Duvel glasses and others just saying what style of glass they prefer. So, it sounds like a lot of people just want glasses of a particular style as opposed to specific wants. So, if you don't care what brewery it is, just what style it is makes it seem that some could easily send along some glasses that they don't regularly use anymore and make someone happy. Happy New Year.

    Unless I'm blind you aren't even in this so why do you care what is or isn't going on?

    Forget it, carry on. I guess you aren't allowed to ask questions just to get information. Take some Tylenol and sleep it off.

    For me, it doesn't matter if their used our new. Just getting glasses & breweriana items that I wouldn't otherwise have access to makes me happy;)

    This is my first GIF or BIF whatever and I based my selections on these 3 glasses
    1- A glass I happened to be lucky enough too of ordered 2 of when I did
    2- An all all around killer glass that I love
    3- One based entirely on the pics of the collection and NOT seeing one of these in said collection !
    Along with whatever other swag I throw in I hope my target will be happy.

    Most haven't gotten their boxes yet, but so far far it's been fun. Hopefully there will be another that you'll be able too get in on.

    My box is packed up and ready to head East with tomorrow's mail. It may not be as epic as Kaydogg's sound like it might be, but I am including a glass from my target's wantlist. And I hope he likes the rest of the glasses and items as well;)

    Gah, and I just realized I forgot to include a note saying who it was from. I think I'm the only one mailing from California though, so whoever gets a box from CA, that's from me!

    I guess it was wishful thinking on my part that my target would get his box before the new year. Good news, though: on vehicle for delivery today!

    My box is officially en route. Dropped at the post office this morning. Estimated delivery by the 10th.

    I am in the process of getting my box ready. Thanks to a post in another thread, I know that I've hit one of my target's long-time wants! The package will also include one of my all-time favorite glasses, one or two semi-glasswhales, one or two local glasses, local swag, and an excellent beer from a great east coast brewery that has yet to be added to BA. Hopefully it will be an enjoyable package to open!
