Weston museum hosts marble show


The West Virginia Museum of American Glass in Weston held its second annual marble show on Saturday.

About three hundred people came to the museum to look at and purchase handmade marbles and to have their own marbles appraised.

Volunteer Dare Hawkins says he became interested in marbles as a child and then took interest in those made within West Virginia.

He says he enjoys seeing younger generations having the opportunity to learn about marbles. 

“It’s the nostalgia value for people that collect. It’s amazing to see the children come in with their parents and grandparents that are interested in the marbles. They are buying some and learning to play and just be involved in personal games with each other, something other than on the computer,” said Hawkins.
