Get Your Glass Float Before They are Gone

Crab, Lincoln City Floats

Lincoln City, OR – The end is near for the 2013-2014 Finders Keepers season.  The final day for the current program year will be Memorial Day, May 26, 2014 with the next season kicking off October 18, 2014.  Before another chapter closes, there is one last special opportunity to score an official glass float or another piece of glass art.  On Mother’s Day weekend, May 10th-11th 100 extra pieces of glass art, including floats, sand dollars, crabs and starfish will be on the Lincoln City beaches awaiting discovery.

This is the 15th and final special drop of the season, which marks over 3,000 floats placed on the beach this year alone.

“We’re always sad to see Finders Keepers wrap up,” laments Scott Humpert, Public Relations Coordinator for the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau. “Finders Keepers brings so many people to Lincoln City from both near and far.  It is wonderful to see all the excitement it generates and the exposure it brings for the city, so we are definitely looking forward to another successful year to come!”

Finders Keepers, glass floats on the beach, is currently celebrating its 15th anniversary.  The signed, numbered, and handcrafted floats are hidden along the 7½ miles of public beaches in Lincoln City.  When the floats are found, they become collector’s items.  Bring your discovered treasure to the Visitors’ Center at 540 NE Hwy 101 in Lincoln City to receive your certificate of authenticity and a biographical sketch of the artist who created the glass float.  Remember, if you find it, you keep it!

Successful treasure hunters are encouraged to share their finds on the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau’s Facebook page at
