What do you do with all those event steins?

    I use to keep them in the kitchen cabinet, use a couple when we went to shows, carry a few in the garage but Brenda decided I was taking up too much space in the kitchen so I started stacking them up in the back bedroom where I keep all my books and toys. HRP

  6. Mugs hang in the workshop in my basement. The nsra mugs are on one wall and the gg mugs are on the opposite wall.

    If you know the organization history, you know why I separated them this way.

    A few years ago I put a bunch of them in a box and took them to Carlisle and tried to sell them for a buck each. No takers. By end of the weekend I marked them down to a buck for the whole box. Still no takers. Now that box is living out in the barn with a few others. I'm not sure where their next stop will be.

    I've gotten a few from GGs. I drink home brewed iced tea year 'round and they're pretty good for that.

    Last year they all went to Goodwill during a major decluttering. Don’t miss a one!

    Sorry but I've never recieved a stein for participating in anything. I guess the SCTA/BNI is behind the times and my car gatherings are local.

    I like that Goodwill donation idea, thanks @hotrod1948. The local thrift store that helps support a private school will be getting mine.

    Give them away to someone who likes to dust. Throw them away. Don't take one. I only keep the ones that have lids, like the style you get at the Turkey Run.

    Minutes after I get one, I give it to the first little kid I see. They always have a big grin!
