FIRST CLASS GLASS
September 26, 2013
This past year and a half has been a difficult one. My wonderful husband,
Frank, died in February after
a long illness. Since then I've been dealing with everything that entails. Unfortunately my
business, First Class
Glass, has suffered from lack of attention and will continue to do so because of everything I
still have to do. So I have
decided to take a break.
Starting now, and until further notice, I will not be taking any orders for First Class
Glass. Come this spring I will do a complete update and be open for business.
Thank you for your continued patronage.
See you in the spring.
Hi and welcome to First Class Glass. We are Caren
and Frank Reed. We met and married in California in 1985. We were both born and raised on
the East Coast and wanted to ultimately move back. As with most antiques and collectibles
dealers we became collectors and then dealers. Caren collects reamers and syrups and Frank
collects tin wind-up toys and kids' books. In 1994 we, along with 300+ banana boxes filled
with Depression Glass, moved to Maine and started our own mail-order business, First Class
Glass. We also opened a multi-dealer antiques and collectibles mall, Reed's Antiques &
Collectibles, and we now have over 100 dealers. You can visit our shop on Route 1 in
Wells, Maine or on-line at www.reedsantiques.com.
We have 5 children, all grown, and
13 wonderful grandchildren - 6 girls and 7 boys. WOW!!
The most recent grandson was born on 11/17/10. He was 9 weeks early but he
was a fighter and I'm glad to say he is doing great. Grandma's photos
are always available!!! Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your point of view, the
kids are scattered throughout the US and we don't get to see them as often as we'd like.
However we do have our businesses to keep us busy.
We're so glad you stopped to visit our website
and please feel free to call or email with any questions or wants.
Caren and Frank Reed
