Hi Keith

Actutally most of my Chance glasses came from charity shops in the Black Country. Better hunting ground than Birmingham. Also its easiler for me to go there than other part of B,ham as l only live next to Sandwell.
Forget Smethwick as there is no charity shop in Smethwick High St as it now become an Asian area.

P.S. Black Country is around West Bromwich,Dudley,Smethwick area.

Both my grandfather and his brother worked at Chances the only thing they 'left' was a tray with a Greek pattern,it's in 'Chance Expressions' page 56,the square one,although I do now have a number of other pieces it's taken quite awhile to collect;which towns do you go to?Keith.

The best charity shops for Chance hunting are West Bromwich, Dudley, Black Heath and Bearwood. But most important all is Luck because l find the best Chance in B'ham -two Green Leaves Diamond Trays.

That's interesting. Do you have any other memorabilia, like paperwork, booklets, or copies of the in-house magazine 'Chance Comments'? I would be very keen in seeing anything you have.

Also, if you have any relatives who can recall any snippets of information, that could be helpful.
