Fire-King Mugs

(Welcome again to Lily, one of the finalists in our San Francisco Blogger search.
Comment away!)

On a recent trip to Tokyo we were delighted by the bright 60's-style mugs that seemed to be cropping up in all the cutest boutiques. It turns out they are Fire-King mugs from the Anchor Hocking brand (the same company that makes the "Jadite" Martha Stewart covets so), and were made right here in the US!

Despite their growning popularity in Japan, you can still hunt them down on eBay, or locally at the Alameda Antique Fair or Alemany Flea Market. Just be prepared for a bidding war if we're around!
