IPBA Highlights of Our Upcoming Convention

Our 2022 Convention will be held IN PERSON April 28 – May 1, 2022 in Chicago!

More events and presentations will be announced soon – so keep posted! For now, some highlights of the Convention will include:


presented by Shari Maxson Hopper

Many people have a piece of glass in their collection that puzzles them as to how it was made.

If you have a mystery bottle, please send me photos and I will add it to my presentation to describe how it was made.



Mike and Sherry are often asked “When was my mesh bag made?”

Join Mike and Sherry at one of our Vanity Table Talks as they share with us what they have learned through their journeys on how to do just that. Their talk will include beautiful images from dated catalogs, vintage magazine ads as well as patents that show many of the mesh bag designs you may recognize.


Special Event hosted by Barbara W. Miller

After your wonderful tour of Perfume Passage what could be more fun than IPBA Bingo? Using photos from our Virtual Museum Barbara has put together some exciting Bingo games using perfume bottles, compacts and our IPBA pins. Come join in and have a blast while winning some great prizes too!

Let the games begin!

Leading dealers offering thousands of perfumes, compacts, purses and related vanity items to drool over and purchase will once again be a highlight of the convention during the “Perfume Bottle and Vintage Vanity Show and Sale.”

Exhibitor contracts are being prepared and will be sent shortly to past showroom exhibitors. The showroom will be open several hours each day, with set up Wednesday April 27 and Thursday April 28. The showroom will open Thursday evening to our members.

The showroom will once again be opened to the public on Saturday and Sunday and all convention activities that are opened to the public will be greatly promoted.

There are several options for a “booth” in the exhibitor hall featuring rental showcases. Booths come with tables, chairs and electrical at no extra charge. Space may also be shared between two exhibitors.

Showroom exhibitor information is detailed in the contracts and exhibitors must commit to keeping their booths open until Sunday afternoon. All exhibitors are required to be vaccinated.

If you’ve never set up in the showroom before and would like to receive a contract, please contact Andra Behrendt, Show Chair at: andra@lady-a.com
