43rd Annual “Festival of Glass” - August 18th, 19th & 20th, 2017 in Rosenberg, Texas

Houston:  The Houston Glass Club is proud to announce its 43rd annual “Festival of Glass” & Antique Show and Sale from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Friday August 18th, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 19th and 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 20th at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds in Rosenberg, Texas.

This annual event is the highlight of the year for the glass club and its members. Countless hours go into preparations to make this show a success each year which has become one of the top rated glass shows in the south. Collectors and dealers from all over eagerly anticipate this annual event in order to add special one-of-a-kind special treasures to their collections.

Over 30 dealers from across the United States will display more than 200 tables of the finest quality glass including: depression era glass, EAPG, American crystal, American dinnerware, kitchenware and pottery.

Another aspect in making this event successful has been the well-received general line antique show. This is held in the second building and features selected respected general line antique dealers from around the area. These dealers bring a wide variety of quality items including furniture, jewelry, textiles, linens, silver and more. One never knows what wonderful items will be shown in both shows and everything will be available for sale.

Again this year, we are pleased to announce that Leigh Ann Winter from Texas Silver Mercantile will have a booth in the general line show that will include a repair booth. Leigh Ann is a leading silversmith and glass repair expert in this area. She will be available the entire weekend, so customers are invited to bring glass, silver and costume jewelry items with them for repair or receive a consultation on the needed repairs and costs. This is a rare opportunity to get that special family treasure restored.

Food concessions are also available on site and will be catered by well-known local caterer, Custom Caterers. The food is so delicious; many customers have made dining part of the show experience!

Admission to the show is $10.00 on Friday, $6.00 on Saturday or Sunday and is good all weekend. The Fort Bend County Fairgrounds are located off Highway 59 South, just ½ mile south on Highway 36. Don’t miss this fun event! For more information, phone 281-240-0382.
