I didn't even think of looking for glass tops. Maybe next year.
We already spent more than we intended to spend there. It'll be a couple of weeks of vegetable soup for meals now.
Were the glass tops cheap?
As for justifying purchases by selling something, I used to do that at the Dayton Hamvention. I would set up a table and sell all of my old computer stuff. That would pay for the table, which also allowed me early entry into the Hara Arena to see things before the general public would see them. It gave me a rallying point for my friends, too, who would take a turn at watching the table every so often. Maybe next time I'll have something to sell.

I think next time I will have to remind myself that justifying purchases is much easier when one brings things to sell.
Spare a cucumber. Eat a pickle.
