This month's newsletter highlights  
 The National Glass Fair 


 

   

 

 

 

 

Hello Artius Glass & I.o.W. Studio Glass Enthusiasts!


Ah YES. Our cup runneth over ! Not just one Newsletter this month but a second close on its heels.

The reason? Just an 11th hour reminder of the bi-annual event of events ~ The National Glass Fair.

Most of the 'old' hands will know that it is this month for the premier fair in the small round of glass fairs run so ably by Paul (Bishop) & Christina (Glover) As usual at The Birmingham Motorcycle Museum, which is about as good as it gets for access from all corners of the U.K. with terrific road links from all directions. So don't deprive yourself. Look at it not so much as the chance of spending money but an investment both in beauty and financially a better return than most other forms ( less than 1% in the bank!).

Hope to see you all there.

All details and some images of a few of our gems are also on their site in the gallery section.

All details below in 'Our Fair dates section' as well as on our website (http://www.artiusglass.co.uk/) or from the dedicated fair site (http://www.nationalglassfair.co.uk/ ). For those Ludites still in the dark ages you are welcome to ring (presumably also from one of those old BT landlines) for any other info. Sorry but two baked bean cans and a long piece of string only works in a straight line !

And, so as not to lose the opportunity of the risk of a sale , the usual follows~
