Our 45th Annual Convention is just months away! The annual consignment auction is held on the first evening of convention (Tuesday, July 27). This auction is open to the public - anyone can attend! We will be accepting consignments from our current members through mid-May. We try to limit our total lots to a manageable number, usually around 200 to 225. We already have consigned glass from several members, which we've been holding since this time last year. We did not have a live convention in 2020, therefore had to cancel the auction. If you are a current member and are interested in consigning a few lots (usually 5 to 25 lots) please let us know. We are looking for good, quality glass and will need good photos prior to accepting the glass for consignment. Please do not consign any damaged glass or second quality. The glass committee will determine eligibility to be entered into the sale, so that we can continue to keep our consignment auction of the highest quality. These auction slots will fill quickly. You can contact us via email fagcainc@suddenlinkmail.com or by calling (304)375-6196.

The FAGCA Board of Trustees hope you are making plans to attend convention this year (national crisis permitted). Please also consider displaying your favorite collection for everyone's viewing pleasure.  Photos of past table displays can be seen below, so you have an idea how fellow members have shared their glass collections. Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place - voted on by YOU!


If you wish to do a table display this year, let us know and we will be happy to assist you!  Smile

Convention 2016 was a milestone Convention that celebrated FAGCA's 40th Anniversary! It was a tremendous success, and we'd like to thank all of those who were able to attend! This year, we have another milestone - our 45th - and we hope to see you all there this year!
FAGCA's special tour of the factory on August 4, 2016 was to include a small companion booklet for review during the tour. Unfortunately, we were unable to put this booklet together in time for the tour. We are thrilled our attendance exceeded the numbers we were expecting, but this caused some members to go home without this little momento. Please feel free to view the booklet below, in photgraphic form. Excerpts taken from "Fenton Glass: The 2nd 25 Years" and "Fenton Glass: The 3rd 25 Years" both by William Heacock and "The Fenton Story of Glass Making" by Alan Linn.
