Business Spotlight: The Greatest Glass Show on Earth Coming Feb. 2-3

 Ladies and Gentlemen, children and gays of all ages — “The Greatest Glass Show on Earth,” is coming for a two day only engagement at the Emma Lou Olson Civic Center, 1801 NE 6th Street in Pompano Beach.  

Under the "Big Top" on Feb. 2 and 3 will be 22 national dealers of some of the most unique American glass and pottery spanning from the Depression Era up to the 1970's. Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Mid-Century Modern designs will be displayed and for sale. 

 

Examples of American pottery such as Fiesta, Roseville, Hull, McCoy and Hall will be represented as well as 1950's dinnerware and barware. The main "tent" has items that range from kitchen kitsch to bourgie elegant glass to impress. 

 

Oddities, glass freaks and nudes, both male and female can be found on the floor. There will be animals in glass. Please do not feed the bears. There are "side shows" of amusement games of chance and lectures on collecting glass.
