Earlier this year, we noticed that depression glass was making a major comeback. Gaining popularity during the Great Depression, hence the name, depression glass was once considered cheap and accessible thanks to the fact that it was easy to manufacture and mass produce. These days, they're no less visually stunning, (I mean, can we talk about that golden amber) but they are a bit rarer. Primarily reserved for antique shops and flea markets, these glasses are generally considered true vintage finds and building up a colorful collection, à la Elsie Larson, can't exactly happen overnight.

We recently spotted an awe-inducing shot from Amazon Home's account that featured a truly enviable stock of embossed glasses on Instagram, along with a caption that informed us that they were available for sale on their site. (Cue collective screams.) It's not that we're going to completely ditch our hobby of bargain-hunting in vintage shops, but hey, if we can fill some of our color gaps with the click of a button, we're not going to say no.
