If you’re a collector of Moon and Star Pattern Antique Glassware
, then make sure you have June 25 on your calendar. The Society of Moon and Star Glassware is holding its annual Collectors Show and Sale at the Holiday Inn Presidential in downtown Little Rock. The “moon and star” glassware dates to the 1880s and is still made today. Collectors love the distinctive pattern and brilliant red, amber, green, blue and crystal colors.
“We are very pleased to be bringing this annual collector’s event to Little Rock. Moon and Star glass collectors from all across the United States will travel to Arkansas to both exhibit and shop. We’ve selected Arkansas because of its central location, natural beauty and abundance of history. We believe it will be a trip worth taking. The show itself will be held directly across the interstate from the Clinton Presidential Library and we hope all types of antique collectors will join us for the show and sale,” said Neil McConnell, the 2011 event host.
The organization, which is also holding its convention during the show, has approximately 120 members nationwide. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and admission is free.
