Our annual Michigan depression glass show features all American-made glassware from the late 1800′s to 1960′s including depression glass, Pyrex, Fire King, Heisey, Fostoria, Cambridge, Duncan, Tiffin, Unmarked Fenton, and much more! This is the only depression glass show in Michigan that is ALL depression and era glass! You won’t find any pottery or china here…just aisle after isle of sparkling glassware.
And of course, you don’t want to miss out on seeing our club display! Each year we create an elaborate 32 foot long display that features the glassware we collect. In 2014, we recreated four storefronts from Woodward Avenue that each had glass-themed window displays. In 2015, we celebrated the 100 year anniversary of Pyrex, as well as the 100 year anniversary of the Fostoria American pattern. Our 2016 display is still being planned.
Whether you are an advanced collector, just starting out, or are simply curious what depression glass is, we’d love to have you stop by! Collectors almost always find at least a few items to take home with them, and non-collectors are simply amazed to see this much vintage glass together in one place. The room sparkles – literally!
If you are coming from out of the area or out-of-state, southeastern Michigan has a lot of great attractions to take in during your stay, including the world famous Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. Click here for more information about area attractions, and places to stay/eat.
