Anna Williams with her companion and partner husband Paul have been collectors for over 30 years. They have enjoyed collecting Hall Tea Pots and Van Briggle Pottery. All began in the early 1980's when Paul found a pretty pink bowl at a garage sale. His mother told him it was depression glass. With some research discovered the pattern was Mayfair. Which began their interest in depression glass. Becoming members of the KC Depression Glass Club started the journey of selling at shows. Anna's favorite was Jadeite which in her childhood was found at the local 5 & 10 department store. In 2002 Anna and Paul rented a booth in an antique mall in Grain Valley. They followed the owner to Bates City. You can find their space down the main center aisle.
