THE FENTON FLYER, bi-monthly newsletter of the National Fenton Glass Society, Inc

Members receive six issues each year.  Articles are written by club members. Subjects covered recently include "Fenton look-alikes" and " Fenton Classics".  On the front page of the issue shown on the left, is the article  "Collectors' Corner".  This is the best source for information on the upcoming convention.  We have enjoyed articles highlighting members collections, "eBay Finds", and treasures found at auction.  The "Letter from the President" will keep you up to date on club happenings.  Club glass that is available for purchase is listed, plus "For Sale" and "Wanted" Fenton glass are listed.    Typically, it is 16 pages chock full of information, news and opportunity to find a Fenton treasure.  It includes something for everyone.
