The shop has a beautiful selection of hand blown glass for sale. You can watch them blow glass right in the room attached to the shop.

If you've never blown your own glass ornament, you should do it! I took my young adult daughter and we had a memorable time. The staff are very helpful and enjoy their work. The glass items for sale are beautiful but can be expensive.

Took our kids and grandkids here to blow their own Christmas ornaments. What a blast! Good experience for all and keepsakes that will remind us of our experience every year. Bob was great with the young grandkids - very patient and explained every step to them.

This shop allows you or anyone 4 and up to blow their own pieces of glass -- depending on the time, pumpkins or Christmas ornaments. Plus, there is a wide selection of artwork ranging from sun catchers to wall displays and everything in between. The staff is moderately helpful, but luckily you don't need their expertise for anything but pricing.... More

Salado Glassworks is fantastic!!! Gail and the gang are super friendly and makes the place feel like home! We didn't get the chance to join in on the glass blowing activities this time because we were just dropping in and they were booked for the day, :( but we will definitely be back!!! :) Love! Love!
