Joanne at the acre Vegas Show

One of the ways we sell our glass is to attend trade shows like the Acre Show in Las Vegas. This is Joanne, Nick's beautiful girlfriend, with the showgirls! The promoter for this show is American Craft Retailers Expo: ACRE.

This promoter is new in the market but is attracting lots of buyers and sellers. Galleries, gift shops, department stores, specialty retailers attend these show in search of new and interesting American craft pieces. Altough we can't sell to everyone, we pick up 3 or 4 new accounts each year..... And the nightlife ain't bad either!!

For the Nourot Glass Gallery at 675 East H St, in Benicia, we purchase works by other craftsman so our local customers can enjoy their works as well as ours. In Benicia, we represent some of Micheal and Annie's glassblowing friends such as Rick Satava, Ed Branson, and Kerry Cleaver to name a few. I've got many new works to set out this month including beautiful glass beads in the Italian tradition by Marco Polo. Posted by Picasa
