Sacramento’s oldest antique glass show is headed back to the Sacramento Scottish Rite Temple on Saturday-Sunday, February 1-2, 2020. A favorite site for many glass dealers and buyers, the Scottish Rite Masonic Center provides ample space for club members to display their special array of glass.
Beyond those dealers specializing in antique glass there will be dealers with antique lamps, china, pottery, jewelry, linens, silverware, and ephemera. Vendors come from Western States providing a large variety of choices.
Club President Carole Israel Freeman notes that the glass and other items for sale hold a special appeal for those who want quality and a chance to finish dinner, silverware or glassware sets or buy “new to you” items such as linens and lamps. These items can add special character and ambiance to a home or business.
“As part of living in a sustainable way, purchasers get a chance to reuse and recycle these items and get beauty as well,” said Israel Freeman. “They will be walking away with a piece of history for an affordable price.“
The International Depression Glass Club (IDGC), based in Sacramento, is now officially 50 years old and has held over 95 shows. Celebrating this history and educating the public about antique glass is part of the mission of the club. Beyond sales, vendors provide background on the history of their items including maker and producer information. Show Chair Carol Nelson invites all ages to the show, “This is an opportunity to have a great day learning about these items and meeting our knowledgeable vendors.”
