We were unable to hold our 2020 convention due to COVID-19 and are hoping that it will be back in 2021.
Our 2019 lamp convention was held at Harrisonburg, VA in conjunction with part one of the Lynch lamp auction at Jeffrey S Evans Auctions.
Thursday we arrived to preview lamps. We had our business meeting that afternoon, followed by a reception at Evan's home that evening. They have a lovely historical home with many interesting things to see & learn about.
Friday was the mini lamp auction plus other lighting items. That evening we had our group dinner at Capital Ale House. We had some new members join us this year, and everyone enjoyed making new friends and seeing old ones. Plus we got to go home with lamps from the auction. How great is that?? We hope to see you all back again next year.
Our 2018 convention was held at the Salt Fork Lodge in OH. Friday we toured the Mosser Glass Factory and showroom. They took us downstairs to see the workers blowing pumpkins and pressing glass coasters. In the afternoon we toured the National Museum of Cambridge Glass. It turns out that Cambridge made 3 mini lamps. They were Smith #260 Princess, Smith 2 #223 Duchess, and Smith 2 #224 Countess. The museum has an example of all 3 lamps there, along with many other pieces in so many colors. It was an educational and fun convention.
I (Kathy) thought it might be fun for you to see just where our conventions have taken us over the many years that we have been getting together as a club. They were & continue to be fun times! Where have the years gone?? (The reason that you see Harrisonburg, VA show up more often is because that is when we have based the convention around a major lamp auction at Jeff Evan's Auctions.)
