Visitors can watch as glass artisans make green glass wine bottles, similar to those found at Jamestown, and other items at the Glasshouse. These reproduction objects, including vases, pitchers, candleholders, wine glasses and paper weights, are available for purchase in the Gift Shop. The Glasshouse and Glasshouse Gift Shop are operated by Eastern National, a not-for-profit “cooperating association” that supports the National Park Service. For more information about the Glasshouse Gift Shop, please see the National Park Service’s website.

A portion of all Glasshouse Gift Shop sales support the glassblowing demonstrations and the National Park Service at Historic Jamestowne.
