The Peach State Depression Glass Club sponsors this annual show and sale to draw attention to the beautiful American made glass from the 1800s through the depression era and into the mid-century - glass that can be used to decorate your home. Lamps, vases, candy dishes, console bowls and candlesticks all add charm to open spaces; whereas stems, dishes, and serving pieces provide beautiful and impressive table settings for everyday use or on festive occasions.

We invite 28 national exhibitors to share their collection of glass, pottery, kitchen-ware and knowledge with you. They can help you find that sought after piece for your collection or provide you with a nice gift for a friend (Yes the merchandise is for sale!). The proceeds from the show is used by the club to support student scholarships in the fine arts department/glass blowing at Georgia Southwestern University as well as museums which showcase this fine glass across the nation.
