Mike DiGennaro with his Most Education display,”Don’t Eat Yellow Snow”; good advice!!

When someone wins the “50/50” split the pot, this is what they look like:


Yes, we do have a good time at the Dirty Santa game and sometimes control has to be maintained by the authorities…


…and the guilty parties here, are trying to make their escape!!


After all the festivities, we all relaxed, each in our own way. See you all in Norfolk, VA in 2016!

      Can you please provide a picture of your glass? It’s impossible to say what you have without seeing it.

      Hi Bill,
      It is possible that some of our members might be interested in the glass that you have but you’ll need pictures to show them what you have. It is also important to note the condition of the glass as well as measurements.
      Good luck, Bill!

    I am so glad I found your club. I inherited my Mother’s collection of Vaseline Glass and live near Norfolk and have all of my life so if anyone needs information about the area, please feel free to ask. I am so excited for this. Will be joining the club very soon. You all will love the area and the Chrysler Museum. Bill, I am interested in what you have…I am a member of the Facebook group so please feel free to message me with details and pictures. Katina Lisner

    I am interested in attending the 2016 VCGI convention. I have an extremely large collection of Vaseline glass I inherited from my mother that is in pristine condition. She used to be a VCGI member and attended conventions many years ago.

    Please advise me on if I need to do anything specific before attending the convention in October. I would like to bring as many pieces as possible. Is there a limit to how many pieces can be displayed to be sold at the convention?

    Thank you so much for your time!

      I am so sorry to be responding so late to your email. Our convention is in less than 2 weeks. I’m sure that our members would be happy to look at your collection and buy some of the glass!
      The hotel books up quickly but you are welcome to stop by so we can meet you.
      What was your mother’s name?
      Again, sorry for the terribly slow response.

    My brother has a large collection of Vaseline glass. He is looking to sell. Do you have any ideas for assessing value and selling.

    • Vaseline Glass Collectors, Inc. March 20, 2017 5:01 pm  Reply

      We do not do appraisals. Your best best is to look at eBay to get an idea of value. Hope that helps?

    Great site. Learned a lot.
    I was looking for a piece like I saw in a store the other day. I didn’t see any thing like it so I could compare. I know literly nothing about Vaseline glass. But, it’s so pretty and I was drawn to it.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I just cleaned out my mothers house and found several pieces of glass ware that seems to fit with your website. Do you know anyone that would be interested in purchasing these objects. I have pictures if you need to see them.

      If you can provide those pictures, that will help other see if they are interested.
      You can easily post those pictures on our facebook page, Vaseline Glass Collectors, Inc. and I’m sure your get some interest there.
