Treasures of the Sea

November 1 - December 31

Once upon a time, experienced beachcombers could find glass fishing floats on Newport’s pristine beaches with fair regularity.  There are those who still occasionally run across one of these glass treasures but such discoveries are few and far between.  That is…until now! 

This winter, the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce and participating Newport area businesses have joined forces to increase your chances of owning a one-of-a-kind glass float.  These are not your ordinary glass fishing floats, but unique Glass Art creations, hand-blown by The Edge Glass Blowing of Newport.  Each one is individually crafted with the same techniques that have been used for 2,000 years to create glass art.  Each float is engraved with the name The Edge Glass Blowing, Newport, Oregon. 

Many lucky individuals will win one of these beautiful keepsakes simply by visiting participating businesses from November 1st through December 31st. Download the Treasure Map, find the glass floats, and enter to win them all!

For more information call 541-265-8801. Good luck!
