Gay Fad Studios opened in Lancaster, OH in 1945. Gay Fad's founder was Fran Taylor, who worked at home for seven years hand decorating home goods and glassware items before opening the studio. Taylor and her staff designed a variety of patterns onto "blank" glassware purchased from Anchor Hocking, Hazel Atlas and Federal Glass, among others. While quite prolific during the mid-century, Gay Fad Studios closed in 1962.

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis, and partial refunds will not be given under any circumstances.

Returns must be shipped back at customer's expense and original purchase and shipping will be refunded after a case is opened with Canada Post.
