Treasures of the Sea
Once upon a time, experienced beachcombers could find glass fishing floats on Newport’s pristine beaches with fair regularity. There are those who still occasionally run across one of these glass treasures but such discoveries are few and far between. That is…until now! This winter, the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce and participating Newport area businesses have joined forces to increase your chances of owning a one-of-a-kind glass float with TREASURES OF THE SEA!
These are not your ordinary glass fishing floats, but unique Glass Art creations, hand-blown in Newport. Each one is individually crafted with the same techniques that have been used for 2,000 years to create glass art. Each float is engraved with Newport, Oregon. Many lucky individuals will win one of these beautiful keepsakes simply by visiting participating businesses from November 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016.
