National All-Cambridge Annual Benefit Auction

Welcome, one and all, to the National Cambridge Collectors All-Cambridge Benefit Auction. The purpose of the auction is three-fold:

  • It is one of the premier fund raising events for NCC and its Museum.
  • It provides a national event for the purchase and sale of Cambridge glass and ephemera for members and non-members alike.
  • When combined with the March quarterly meeting and auction preview, provides a major and fun social event for all attendees.

We hope you find the information you are looking for. If you have any questions, please contact us. We'll be happy to help.

Donations and Consignments

Once the Auction Committee has selected the items to be included in the Auction, the full list will appear here and in the Crystal Ball newsletter. We will also post group photos of some of the items on this page.

The day of the Auction

Anyone can participate; you do NOT have to be an NCC member. We welcome and invite you to join us in Cambridge. We realize many are not able to attend the auction in person. But that doesn't mean you have to miss out on all the fun. We do accept absentee bids as well.
