Houston Glass Show

I found out about this show only by chance two weeks before it came to town. (Next to the last weekend in August.) If I had known beforehand, I might have been able to save up some money. As it was I spent about $200 there and my mother spent $500 of my 43rd birthday money there.

I got the 80 oz Hazel Atlas ribbed water pitcher to go with my 42 oz one. I only paid $85 with tax. I love it.

I also bought a Victory sandwich plate for $95 dollars with tax. I didn’t own any Victory and I wanted some. However, unless it is a pitcher, I don’t think I’ll buy other pieces now.

My mom bought me a Cambridge cobalt bowl pitcher for $200 pre-tax. There were several for sale and this one was the cheapest.

She also bought me a Cambridge turquoise night water pitcher. It is petite and precious. That was $80.

Finally, she bought me a MacBeth Evans cobalt blue pitcher with four glasses for $200 after tax.

Things I did not buy which I wish I had:

A Heisey Cathedral Vase for $750. Very rare. Very beautiful.

another MacBeth Evans cobalt blue pitcher for $65.

Next year I will go better prepared, with more money.

It was fun.
