    These are a set of eight zodiac coasters from Val Saint Lambert. I am finding conflicting information if they still make these or if they are from the 60/70s.

    Ready? Here's my story...

    As some of you know Sean and I started with Lalique week, which has now devolved into cut glass that kinda looks like Lalique.

    Naturally I spotted these and thought "Aha!" and swooped them up.
    I promptly took three steps and dropped one.
    -it didn't break, it shattered...for yards
    -did I mention I was in the center of a four way corner?
    -the main four way where they put the just out bins?
    -the main four way where people like to gather to dig in said bins?

    The staff was super nice and when I checked out the woman, who was the same one on clean up, couldn't believe all that glass came from one coaster.
    THAT's how big a mess I made.
    Good times...

      Stunning set!!! You saw my coasters from val st lumber!!!
    2. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      That's right! I can't believe I shattered one.
    3. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      AR, so sorry one broke. I love them. especially that crab. Not for the sign cancer (I'm Taurus the bull) but because we crab the Chesapeake Bay every year.
      If you flip they'll be very easy to sell individually.
    4. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      PS I'm viewing from my phone, which one broke?
    5. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 years ago
      Poor Amber:(!!!
    6. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      I didn't even buy them yet when I broke one.
    7. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 years ago
      OK so trying not to laugh!!!!
    8. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Go ahead and laugh it was quite spectacular
    9. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      You too really do behave like siblings.
    10. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 years ago
      I have to say that these are great!!! But to break one before you buy is...........Lol. :) OK I'm laughing!!!!
    11. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      It shows great character ;)
    12. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      Could have said OMG that lady pushed me and made me drop that. LoL!!
    13. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      "She" was nothing but nice and professional to the butterfingers. Hey at least I didn't have to pay for it!
    14. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      Thanks a lot AR, now I want a Butterfinger candy bar.
    15. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Yum, a favorite! No, we must not start chatting candy.
    16. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      LmboOoOo *i* you must learn to share. AR, it always ends up candy talk ;)

      I have a set of six, differing only in the central design, dating to the 1990's. They came as a gift from a Belgian company (not V.St. L.) To this day the V.St.L. web site has a section headed Business Gifts. I have no idea when they began making these.

      I like the crab!! I am a Cancer!

      They're really nice Amber but....you do have the "dropsies".....lol. I didn't see Scorpio unless he was the casualty.
    21. racer4four racer4four, 7 years ago
      I think AR whooshed herself!!!
    22. AmberRose AmberRose, 7 years ago
      Hahaha, I have been known as the Destroyer.
      Mike, there are a couple of odd looking ones so not sure which is which. I did try to ID the dropped one but there literally wasn't a piece big enough to do that.
      I never grab a basket or a cart as they get in the way. I get annoyed with the people I call the "Leaners". They walk around practically laying down on their carts and always blocking the aisles.
    23. Aimathena Aimathena, 7 years ago
      LoL!!!! That's called old age. My mother would always do that for support.

      Lovely coasters only one problem with glass is the condensation you get for cold glass & ice.
    25. Nordicman32 Nordicman32, 7 years ago
      Love the coasters now you just need to collect the rest without breaking them ;-)
    26. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      Hehe, ...You would have to post all things you broke through the age ;-)
      Would have been better living during Neolitic, lol.
      But, truly I'm empathic with letting drop nice things!
