The other day one of my cornflower alerts sent me to the Kijiji website where it appears someone in Moncton, ON is selling some of their Hughes Corn Flower:
I’m an avid collector of Hughes Corn flower and would like to sell my extra’s. I have candlewick, clear & colored items for sale. Please contact me if you are interested. Pictures available.
The November 2006 issue of the Ruby Lane newsletter has an article by Elaine of Everlasting Treasures about her experiences collecting Hughes Corn Flower:
During my first visit to the Dufferin County Museum and Archives in Ontario, Canada and viewing their outstanding collection of W. J. Hughes Corn Flower glass, I realized – I was hooked! I became fascinated with is amazing glass. And I wanted to learn more about the glass and the man who created it.
I’m currently away on vacation up in the Kawarthas… a small town called Buckhorn. We’ve been renting a cottage at the Three Castles Resort for years now. There are a few antique shops and shows around so hopefully I’ll have something to report when I get back.
I have updated the web site and will continue to tweak it. If you have any problems viewing any of the site or have any suggestions, be sure to email us.
I realized today that I haven’t updated the About Me page in 3 years! I updated it to reflect the new grandkids and marriages and jobs.
Welcome to the new and improved HughesCornFlower.com home page. We are slowly getting around to updating the site, and this is the next step. As Brian acquires new pieces or as Graham updates the site, updates will be posted to this page. Enjoy!
