I'm wanting to buy a few glass straws. Have you bought any or seen any that you could recommend? What can I expect to pay for them? Thanks!

I haven't tried them, but if I remember correctly, if you're using them for anything other than water, it's worth getting the skinny cleaning brush.
eta: I think the sets come with a brush anyway.
www.reuseit.com They carry glass straws made in the USA. They also have stainless steel straws and glass straws with filters made for coffee and tea.

Our glass ones didn't last very long. My advice would be to avoid the bent glass straws. Very hard to clean the bendy part!
We have a solid supply of straws (albeit plastic) that come with camelbaks water bottles, but don't get used in the bottles. The skinny little cleaning brush is a must!
I look forward to the day when my kids don't want a straw every time they have hot cocoa, a milk shake, or a smoothie!

We use them daily. I like them but am concerned I may be too clumsy for glass straws. We've been using them ~ three months. I broke one the first month (knocked over a glass, with the glass straw inside, onto a glass table). I used their replacement guarantee which is really an $8 credit on a purchase and considering shipping is a bit high it isn't really a good deal to replace. So, this month I broke another straw and am not replacing it. (My nine year olds haven't broke any yet.) My children drink at least one smoothie per day and I like to drink my daily kombucha with a straw. So we were going through 3-6 straws/day. I feel much better not using plastic. Maybe I s/h bought stainless - but I like the glass because I can see if they are really clean. I run them through the dishwasher and they typically get clean but sometimes need a second wash if they were not rinsed or washed right a away.
eta: I liked them well enough to purchase another set of four with the $8 credit instead of just replacing the one straw. Plus it was a better deal to buy four. Hopefully I can work on my clumsiness
