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.
