I haven't had much to blog about recently. My work schedule and the weather have not cooperated much. And moving into a bigger place, has taken up much of my free time... tho I did find a couple pieces of sea glass that had been tucked away (aka- forgotten about)
bro-in-law reminded me on Facebook about the NASGA annual Sea Glass
Festival because it is "down the road" in Cape May, NJ this weekend! I
would have totally forgot...so thanks Tom!
is held this time every year and they are back in NJ in 2014. The Cape
May Convention Ctr, is hosting this year's event and the doors open at
10am until 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. The festival is opened to the
public and there is a $5 admission.
If you are into sea
glass, the incredible ocean treasures that are on display will just
blow you away. There is a shard of the year contest, where collectors
put up their best finds and the winner collects (I think) $1000! In the
past they had guest speakers discussing everything from the history of
pieces of glass, to their personal preferences and conditions for
finding sea glass.
There displays where sea glass can
be looked at and an area where vendors may have sea glass and sea glass
creations for sale... some of the items displayed are truly amazing!
hubby and I will be there tomorrow, strolling among the crowds (last
couple times I went, the people were 4 and 5 deep at the tables) and
hopefully getting a chance to talk with a few sea glassing friends from
the groups and forums to which we belong. If you happen to see us, come
up and say Hi!
'til next time...
