The IPBA presents its 25th annual convention weekend at the Tropicana Hotel. This convention has been named “Scentful in Las Vegas” and while some presentations are available only for registrants, there are many opportunities for the public to appreciate the lovely perfume bottle glass treasures.
The IPBA Perfume Bottle Show & Sale is open to the public on Saturday, May 4th from 3-6 p.m., and on Sunday May 5th, from 10 a.m.- noon. The best perfume bottle dealers in the world bring the rarest and finest bottles and vanity items for display and sale. The entry fee for the show and sale is $5.00, but a downloadable, 2-for-1 discount coupon is available by visiting the IPBA website at www.perfumebottles.org. The public is also invited (at no charge) to attend the annual Perfume Bottles Auction held on May 3 at 5 p.m.
To share knowledge about the art of perfume bottles, the IPBA will be presenting a free program entitled “Collecting Perfume Bottles 101.” The seminar will take place Saturday, May 4th from 2:15 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. Door prizes, refreshments and a starter packet will be given to all attendees.
