Chelsea will be spotlighted in a nostalgic display presented by the Michigan Depression Glass Society (MDSG) during its 47th annual show and sale in Dearborn next month.

In the “Michigan Road Trip” display, a vintage glass exhibit will pay tribute to Chelsea’s own and famous Jiffy Mix Products and will include a glimpse of a Depression-Era kitchen packed with period baking items.


According to Jennifer Ganem, member of MDGS, the people at Jiffy Mix have even added to the display by sharing artwork of a vintage Jiffy Mix box.

MDGS is a non-profit hobbyist group dedicated to the preservation and research of American-made glassware from 1970 and earlier. The group presents an annual glass show that brings in attendees and dealers from across the country. This year’s exhibit will include over a dozen Michigan cities, destinations and brands.

Some of the Michigan cities being honored in the show include Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Traverse City and Holland and will include long standing products associated with Michigan like Kellogg’s, Vernor’s and Sander’s.

The event will include several American glass makers and dealers in a show of colorful glassware for home decor, dining, entertaining and cooking. For those interested in Michigan history, antiques, home decor, vintage kitchens, setting stylized dinner tables, mixing cocktails or appreciating American-made craftsmanship will want to venture to Dearborn for the show.

The MDGS Show and Sale takes place November 2 (10am-5pm) and November 3 (10am-4pm) at Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Ave (US12) at Greenfield Rd, Dearborn. $5 donation at the door and free parking.
