Happy New Year to our Faithful Customers!
I’d like to thank all our customers and collectors who increased their
purchases from the Gift Shop, over the internet, and through our dealer
network during the second half of 2007. This surge of business is a key
reason why Fenton is still producing glass. The year 2008 will bring new
beginnings as we implement changes to recover from the difficulties we faced
in 2007. We have initiated two brands: Fenton USA and Fenton International.
Details will be forthcoming on the unique and beautiful items from Fenton
As for Fenton USA, we will add USA to each of our moulds, either below or
beside the current logo. To simplify production and reduce costs, we are
restricting the number of Fenton dealers, reducing the number of items
offered, and shortening the time these items will be produced. This means
that Fenton items will be more limited, both in number and in the time
If you wish a particular item, you need to order it soon after it has been
offered to ensure that you get it. We expect to have several other offerings
throughout the year. All Fenton products will continue to maintain the
principles of quality, unique design, and handcrafting that have been Fenton
hallmarks for more than a century.

Points of Interest...
Visitors to Fenton Art Glass will find a spacious Gift Shop and a
pleasant museum. Free factory tours (M-F 8:15am to 4:00pm) take small
groups of guests right out to the factory floor to see glassmaking
"up close and personal." Friendly, knowledgeable tour guides
explain all aspects of the operation. The Fenton tour has been ranked among the
"top 10" factory tours nationwide by USA Today.
In addition we have been named
Rand McNally Best of the Road for 2006. For a factory tour schedule,
