This is a wonderful glass blowing business. They have free daily glass blowing demonstrations which are really interesting. They also have a large store selling the glass art. Beautiful objects. Would recommend visiting when in Staunton.

A little disappointed that there was no one blowing glass when we were there but they informed us as soon as we walked in and apologized. The items on display were all beautiful.
