Collectors make for popular neighbors, impressing passersby with curios full of knickknacks, chests packed with treasures, and notebooks brimming with the postman’s deepest fears. Begin a new collection with today's Groupon: for $5, you get two one-day admissions to 39th Annual All Depression and Era Glass Show & Sale, hosted by the Michigan Depression Glass Society on Saturday, November 5, from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. and Sunday, November 6, from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center in Dearborn (a $10 value).
During the 39th Annual All Depression and Era Glass Show & Sale, more than 20 dealers of American-made glassware from the 1920s–‘60s will hawk their wares in the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, filling the hall with their light-catching, colorful collections. Tinted in every color of the rainbow, Depression glass livens kitchens with cheery hues, tempts collectors with rare shades, and repels bulls when places in china shops. Pyrex and green Jadeite from the ‘40s–‘60s treat eyes to intricate nostalgia, and elegant glass adds a refined touch to shelves and dinnerware collections. Though not covered by today’s Groupon, desired items sail into shopping bags for as little as a few dollars per piece, and hourly door-prize drawings add an element of suspense rivaled only by the convention’s blindfolded goblet juggler.
