Texas gal relocated to Colorado in 1983. I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. I hope to retire in the next 5 years, but until then, I'm a letter carrier for the USPS. I love photography, camping, backpacking, and pretty much anything involving the outdoors, and collecting vintage Federal Glass, Fire King, but most of all Pyrex!
Tell us about your interest in antiques, collecting and any antique related websites, blogs, businesses.
I've recently started collecting vintage Pyrex. I'm hoping to connect with other people who love it as much as I do. I'd also like to connect with collectors in the UK because I'd like to start collecting JAJ Pyrex.
Hi, Patti ~ You want to get in touch with The Rocky Mountain Depression Glass Society in Denver, CO. Their group is awesome and they can hook you up with programs and shows including a great one in Castle Rock. You missed the April show, but there's one in the fall. This is from the club website: The RMDGS meets at 7:30 PM on the 3rd Tuesday of each month in the basement of the Epiphany Lutheran Church, 790 South Corona, Denver, Colorado. (June is a show planning meeting; no meeting in December.) Guests are always welcome. Further information and/or directions are available on request. The agenda includes a short business meeting followed by an excellent program on Depression Era Glass, EAPG, and/or china collectibles. During the refreshment portion members can get a closer look at the items presented during the program and seek additional information fromthe presenter. Club members also attempt to help one another in identifying pieces brought to meetings. At the annual show and sale, the RMDGS hosts some 34 nationally recognized dealers, specialized displays of glass, and free glass identification. The show is held the last full week-end of April at the Douglas Count Events Center in Castle Rock, CO. I hope this helps! Barbara
Hi, Patti ~ Welcome to the PYREX group. Have we met? My husband and I did the show in Colorado Springs three years ago. You have two great shows in your area. If you don't know about them, let me share the information with you and you have a great opportunity to mingle with terrific dealers who have outstanding vintage glass including PYREX. Welcome aboard! Barbara Mauzy
