A commercial break in the Classy Sustainability series, with a look at some spring bird feeders from  Perfect gifts for Mother's Day, Easter or beautiful garden wedding decor.  All begin with a vintage glass light shade, which usually requires some clean up.  Once hardware is installed - Voila - a new bird feeder from repurposed, art deco, ceiling glass is born.  The glass is heavy and sustainable in all kinds of weather.  Most of my pieces date from 1920s -1940.  
Exquisite raised and cut glass patterns on this one.  Mint condition
$71 plus shipping
It's rare to find this hobnail bubble all over design
$79 plus shipping

Blues are my best sellers and the next is one of 2 almost identical feeders.  The tint is slightly different in each, but both are in mint condition.  There are several other blue designs to choose from.
$64 plus shipping
Am rather into spring colors, but again the detail is exquisite
$54 plus shipping
There are 72 available right now with more listed each week at  Be sure to browse the covered feeder section if you don't like squirrels in your bird feeders.
