Vetro’s Annual Second Sale

EVERY SECOND COUNTS, SO COME EARLY

SECONDS SALE STARTS SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, NOON

You’ve been asking about the start of the sale, and it has finally arrived!  Gappa and his team have an incredible inventory this year of seconds – pieces that didn’t make the gallery cut but are undoubtedly considered fine art glass.  There might just be a slight imperfection that most eyes can’t detect, a color variance that wasn’t intended by the artist, or for whatever reason the piece didn’t get a nod of final approval. Hundreds of creations for 25% to 75% off normal gallery prices.

FATHER’S DAY BEER GRAB – JUNE 15

On the afternoon of June 15, we are dedicating our gallery and studio to the hard-working Father’s everywhere who just want to kick back and enjoy something different. From 2pm to 5pm, we’re opening Vetro’s doors to registered Dads (and their families) to grab the beer glass or mug of their choice. It’s first-come, first-served, literally, because Grapevine Craft Brewery (see below) will be on site to fill your new glass a couple of times with Grapevine Craft Brewery’s newest blend known as “Lakefire Rye Pale Ale”.  Then it’s time for Dad to sit back and chill, watch a little live glassblowing and historic baseball highlights on the flat screen. It’s really very simple.
