SPECIAL EVENT | 38th Depression Glass Show and Sale 

You may think antiques are for shelves — collector's items to be encased and periodically dusted. But the Depression Glass Club of Rochester wants to encourage people to consider the utilitarian side of the elegant objects. This weekend, the club will host the 38th Depression Glass Show and Sale at Eisenhart Auditorium at RMSC (657 East Avenue). The event will feature a variety of glassware and pottery dating primarily from the Depression Era of the 1920's and 1930's through the 1960's.

The main floor will be filled with colorful club displays under a theme of "Back to Basics," featuring a dozen vignettes of individual place settings. The displays will depict a variety of creative mealtime scenes using Depression Era plates, bowls, goblets, and serving pieces as well as other tabletop accessories. Dealers from across the Northeast will also show and sell their wares, and the club will offer glass identification (free with paid admission, three items per person) and an educational seminar each day.

The event will take place Saturday, September 19, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, September 20, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the show is $5. Parking is free, and refreshments will be available on the lower level. For more information, visit, call 281-5008, or email
