NDGA Convention - Connecticut, July 11-12, 2009 The National Depression Glass Association has scheduled the 2009 Convention for Danbury, Connecticut, marking the first time this Convention has been held in the Northeast.
News-Antique.com - May 19,2009 - The National Depression Glass Association has held an annual Convention in a different city each year since 1974. This year we have a lot to look forward to: the Convention will be held in the Northeast for the first time ever. The last NDGA Convention to be held on the east coast was in 1985 in Lakeland, FL.
Thirty-two dealers from all across the United States will converge at the O'Neill Center, on the campus of Western Connecticut State University on July 11-12, 2009. This is a beautiful 42,000 sq ft facility, and is a perfect fit for the Convention. The O'Neill Center is easy to get to, located about a mile off Exit 4 from Interstate 84, minutes from White Plains and less than an hour from New York City.
There will be seminars on "African-Americana" collectibles by noted authors Barbara and Jim Mauzy, as well as topics like "Wave-Crest" and Early American Pattern Glass. Displays from private collections will include gold-encrusted Carmen (red) pieces by Cambridge, Carnival glass, collectible Marbles, depression glass and glass animals and lots more. And, of course, there will be plenty of top quality glass for sale during the two days of the Convention.
