WELLINGTON, Kan. — Depression glass collectors from across the country will converge on Wellington, Kan., July 11-14, for the National Depression Glass Association’s annual convention.
“We are so excited to be bringing our convention to Wellington. Our dealers are the cream of the crop and our exhibits will knock your socks off,” said Pam Meyer, chair of the glass show held during the convention.
This year’s convention has a lot to offer, especially since Wellington is home to the National Depression Glass Museum. The convention will be held at the same time as the Kansas Wheat Festival, and the NDGA’s annual event has been extended from the normal two-day schedule to four-and-a-half days, to allow for many new events.
More than 30 nationally known glass dealers will display at the convention’s glassware show. Depression glass from the mid 1800s through mid-century modern will be on display and available for purchase, along with pottery, china and kitchenware from the same period.
The convention is July 11-14, with the glass show/sale being July 13-14 at the Wellington Senior High School, 1700 E. 16th Street. Show hours are Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-4 p.m. with admission being $8, which is good for both days.
