Glass

In an earlier day, the glass industry was will established in the region. Times change, and alas, glass is not so strongly represented as before. Nonetheless, glass still plays a part of the local economy. Speciality shops in the area offer outstanding products and value.

Youghiogheny Station is a lovey restored train station in Connellsville offering Tiffany -stype lamps and other glass treasures by a number of artists. Youghiogheny Station is owned by Youghiogheny Opalescent Glass Company which is known for its specality stained glass.

Not far from from Connellsville is the town of Mt. Pleasant offering two fine opportunities to shop for items crafted from glass. The L.E. Smith Glass Co. is the home of the Glass Factory and Outlet Store. Here you will find an array of giftware at their outlet store at significant discounts. As a bonus, you will be able to tour the factory and view craftsmen at work in a craft that has largely remained the same for 400 years.

Just down the road from L.E. Smith is the Lenox Factory Outlet. Browse their tasteful shop to find Lenox China and Crystal and hand-blown giftware, as well as a number of other items, all nicely priced with factory outlet discounts.
