When I started in 1999 I knew nothing about glass except it was beautiful and I love it! I was simply amazed that there were so many people out there who own glass, collect it, want to buy it and who simply enjoy it. I learned about glass because I found eBay, and once on eBay it was easy to browse the beautiful glass listed. I was hooked! I always wanted to own my own business and as soon as I found eBay I said "I can do this!"
I went to auctions and bought glass and resold it - mostly at a small profit - but quickly learned I needed to learn more about glass. Luckily with glass there are many reference books out there, some incredibly good and some rather poor. If you are just starting, check your local library as many libraries have the basic books by Gene Florence which are good. The other way to learn is to read online. Back in 1999 there weren't many great sites or blogs where you could get educated so I spent a lot of time on eBay browsing pictures and descriptions and sorting through the maze of information and misinformation.
I hope you enjoy reading about and looking at my items as much as I did buying them and writing about them for you.
I am proud to be a member of the Glass and Pottery Sellers Association. This group stands for top customer service and promotes honest descriptions and careful shipping. I have items for sale on eBay and Etsy
