Our annual depression glass show and sale is one of the best attended in the country! At our 2015 show, over 1,400 shoppers came through the doors, 200 of which were in line when we opened at 10am on Saturday. We’ve had an increase in attendance for 7 consecutive years now! If you want to be one of our successful depression and era glass dealers, please contact us for additional information. We do have a wait list, but we always like to have contact information for last-minute fill ins, as well as future shows.
Part of our show’s success comes from our great marketing team. Not every club is fortunate enough to have two marketers-by-profession to execute media buys and public relations efforts, a dedicated database management team that sends postcards to anyone who has attended our show in the past five years, along with club members who distribute our flyers to every antique store they visit.
We pride ourselves in the ability to target our advertising efforts to niche audiences. Not only do we promote the show to glass collectors, but people with a general interest in antiques, Japanese Americans, the LGBT community, and more. We use a variety of methods including print, social media, direct mail, and public relations efforts that have even gained television coverage of the show!
If you aren’t too exhausted from wrapping up all of those glass sales during the day, there are some great area attractions and restaurants to check out in the evenings, or after the show is over. Check out the Visit Dearborn page for more information about the community. We also take great care of our dealers with a pizza party on Friday during setup, and the kitchen is stocked full of breakfast/lunch/snack items to enjoy during the show on Saturday and Sunday.
Please contact us if you are interested in being a dealer at our next show.
In 2015, we had 25 glass dealers from 15 different states!
