Reno, Nevada Bottle Show


Kitty & Russel Umbraco displayed stretch glass at their Reno Bottle Show at the Grand Sierra Hotel, in Reno, NV on July 15 and 16th.  The report that they put out a stack of SGS handouts and quite a few people took them.  The show had front page newspaper coverage so they had quite a crowd coming through. Russel reports,  “Lots of "tire kickers", but many of them were people that collect other things than bottles.  Could have sold the Stretch Glass pieces a number of times…”  We thank Kitty & Russel for helping us promote stretch glass as we swing into high gear with “Stretching over 100 Years:  a century of handmade stretch glass in America,” celebrating the 100thanniversary of the 1916 introduction of iridescent stretch glass in America.
