Welcome to the 6th Tanners Marketplace Newsletter.


Again I would like to thank everyone that participated in and attended the February show.  

It was a lot of fun and the energy was very positive!  :-)


I've put up a link on the website to some photos taken at the show. 


Burning Man is coming!  The annual pilgrimage to the Black Rock Desert is a great opportunity for all of our vendors.  Besides the obvious clothing vendors many Playa Goers will be looking for accessories to complete their look.  Also think about how something can be re-purposed - i.e. a cup and saucer can become a flower if they are mounted on a stick. Think of that when you plan what to bring to the show.


   The TV show "The Old House Antique Showcase"  filmed several episodes on Saturday morning at the February Tanner's.  It's a new local show that will feature conversations with people in the local antiques community.  

   The program will air every Sunday at 7:00 A.M. on the CW Network, channel 6 on Charter and ATT and channel 46 on Dish and Direct TV.  The 4 episodes that were shot at Tanners will air on the 4 Sundays in March.  They will be back filming at the April show too.  

They will be sponsoring Free appraisals /evaluations again on Saturday.

  If you have any comments or questions for the TV staff please contact Terri.

Uranium Glass / Vaseline Glass"?

  Uranium glass is glass which has had uranium oxide (a yellow/green mineral), added as a colorant to a glass mix before melting. Uranium glass was once made into tableware and household items, but fell out of widespread use when the availability of uranium to most industries was sharply curtailed during the Cold War in the 1940s to 1990s. Also the color of vaseline glass is almost the exact color spectrum as kerosene lamps which were comon at the time.  The glass which was so pretty in kerosene light was dull in the "modern" electric light contributing to its demise.  Most such objects are now considered antiques or retro-era collectibles, although there has been a minor revival in art glassware. Otherwise, modern uranium glass is now mainly limited to small objects like beads, marbles and small figurines and as scientific or decorative novelties.     

  Uranium glass fluoresces bright green under ultraviolet light and can register above background radiation on a sufficiently sensitive Geiger counter.

Vaseline glass

The most typical colour of uranium glass is pale yellowish-green, which in the 1920s led to the nickname vaseline glass based on a perceived resemblance to the appearance of petroleum jelly as formulated and commercially sold at that time. Specialized collectors still define "vaseline glass" as transparent or semitransparent uranium glass in this specific color.

Other colors

Several other common subtypes of uranium glass have their own nicknames:

  • Custard glass (opaque or semi-opaque pale yellow)
  • Jadite glass (opaque or semi-opaque pale green; initially, the name was trademarked as "Jadite", although this is sometimes over-corrected in modern usage to "jadeite")
  • Green Depression glass (transparent or semitransparent pale green).

Help Spread The Word!

If you would like to help advertise the show we have created a flier with tear off tabs that you can print out and post on local bulletin boards or at your office. Many grocery stores etc. have places to post local events and every little bit helps get the word out. The more people that come the better everyone's sales will be!  


Click Here for a Printable PDF file of a flier to post on local bulletin boards  

If it doesn't print in color you may have to save it locally and open it in adobe Reader. 


Click Here for a Printable PDF file of a flier to hand out for the April Show

    There are 3 fliers on each page.


If you are unable to print them out please let me know and I can mail some to you.


I am making some advertising signs that are 18" x 24" that can be placed near a busy road the week before the show.  Let me know if you have a place where one can be put that will show well and not be illegal and I can see about getting it to you when they arrive.  They will have to be picked back up right after the show so they don't disappear.



     We are open to any ideas that you have to let more collectors know about the show and get attendance up. On that note please click the Forward to a Friend link above and let anyone you think might be interested know about us.
Places to Stay:
A few people have asked if there are places to stay close to the Events Center.  The Events Center has RV spaces available (see the bottom of the show application page) and  there are several motels close by and the casinos are close too. lists some close by ones. You can narrow the search in the location box.:
   A friend of mine stays at the SandsRegency Hotel Casino when he visits. They usually have some good deals going. I did a quick check and found their deals page:  
Once he visited the first time they keep sending him free nights coupons.    
   Motel 6 is about a block away:  
   Days Inn is just a little further:
   Americas Best Travel Inn is right at the freeway exit too:
   There is a 24 hour Denny's and a Carrows restaurant very close. (walking dist. from motels, right at the freeway exit)
Let's make this a fun forum to keep interest and excitement up for the shows!

History of the Nevada State Flag
  Unlike seals and mottoes that were devised early in Nevada's history, a state flag was not provided for until after the turn of the century. Also, unlike the state seal whose design has remained static, the basic design of the state flag has been changed significantly. 
  There have been 4 different state flags!
  The first flag wasn't adopted until  1905. It had a cobalt blue ground with the word NEVADA in the center with the word SILVER at the top and GOLD at the bottom with silver and gold stars between them. 
 To see all the flags and read about their history check out the following website:
Father O'Mally 911...
Father O'Malley rose from his bed one morning. It was a fine spring day in his new west Texas mission parish. He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside. He then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. He promptly called the local police station. The conversation went like this: "Good morning. This is Sergeant Jones. How might I help you?" "And the best of the day te yerself. This is Father O'Malley at St. Ann's Catholic Church. There's a jackass lying dead in me front lawn and would ye be so kind as to send a couple o'yer lads to take care of the matter?" Sergeant Jones, considering himself to be quite a wit and recognizing the foreign accent, thought he would have a little fun with the good father, replied, "Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of the last rites!" 
There was dead silence on the line for a moment . . . .

Father O'Malley then replied:

"Aye,' tis certainly true; but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin first, which is the reason for me call."



May your day be touched by a bit of Irish luck,
brightened by a song in your heart,
and warmed by the smiles of the people you love.
