Welcome to Fickes Glass Act!

July 25, 2012

We did attend the  Armstrong Vineyard and Winery Summer Festival on July 14th, Saturday.  Met some very nice people.  The weather was very hot and threatened rain off and on, but the rain did stay away.  Many people came and visited the winery, but sales were slow and we decided to not come back for Sunday due to some unforeseen family obligations.  We will be returning to Armstrong in September 2012.  Armstrong Vineyard and Winery is located at 212 Rutter Road, Halifax, Pennsylvania 17032.  Come check out Fickes Glass Act and other crafters while tasting some WINE! What more can you ask for !?!?!?!

I having been spending most of my time lately doing some commission work.  This is a part time endevor for me and I strive to keep it enjoyable and fun!  I am always open to doing commissioned custom work and can provide most anything that you would desire, given the constraints of stained glass and your budget and my availability.

 We have also reserved our space for the Upper Allen Women’s Club Craft Fair held at the Mechanicsburg, Pa. Senior High School on Saturday, October 27, 2012 (9 a.m. –  3 p.m.)

Please check out my other pages on this site.  My ABOUT PAGE gives some background about myself and how I began my journey into making stained glass products.  For information about some of the products that I routinely stock or sell see my PRODUCT PAGE.  Viewing my SOME MORE STUFF – MY PORTFOLIO will show some items that I have made for friends and commissioned sales pieces that I do not routinely stock, just to give you some idea of what is available.

Be sure to check out my other pages on this site. About – review my background, Product Page – see other products that I have for sale and My Portfolio – other stuff that I have made, but not necessary kept in stock.

FYI, recently was contacted by a client in Mississippi who found some of my stuff on the web and purchased a couple of things.  I really have to get more into the web based selling (click and order not brick and mortar)!

Just seems more like work to me and I am supposedly retired!!!  Been busier and more active with volunteering and doing this part time venture than when I was gainfully employed full time!!!!
