No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Sorry my link is not great. If you look at the page you will see that all the national glass fairs have ended.

Thanks for that Anne.
 I did not attend the glass fair every year but quite a few over the years.
Just to go there and see the dealers with there wares all laid out it was part of my education ( i did buy sometimes :) )
I wonder if this form of buying and selling will return ?

There has been talk of asking the people at the Ruskin Centre, Stourbridge if they'd be interested in taking on the fair but nothing definite, miss it myself.

It was not just an education - it was a time when we could all descend on the same place at the same time and actually see each other - with the added attraction of there being tons of glass to see and talk about.
