Fenton USA Presents. . . QVC Special Preview for July 2011 Shows

A wide variety of handcrafted glass from Fenton USA will be presented during our two separate  QVC shows in July.

We've been asked these questions by several collectors: How can our QVC orders best benefit Fenton? Does the timing of our QVC orders impact Fenton's success on QVC? Of course any order benefits Fenton, but both Fenton and QVC pay particular attention to the sales during the show and on the day of the show. The new Fenton pieces made especially for a show will be on QVC.com not long before the show begins to air, and they can be ordered at that time and any later time until they are gone. However, the purchases of new items on the day of the show are what is most watched. We appreciate the help of Fenton collectors in their support of Fenton on QVC!
 

During the two shows featuring Fenton USA, George Fenton will co-host the  show and present items made in our factory in Williamstown, West Virginia. These items were developed especially for QVC by Fenton Art Glass.  Items shown below will first be available for sale on QVC in limited quantities. Your local Fenton Authorized Dealer carries an extensive line of Fenton USA products that may include similar colors and moulds. Please visit your local dealer to view this collection.
