Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

Today was the beginning of the HOLIDAY SALE at BLENKO GLASS this sale will continue until December 24th - many items 50% off. Many items in the new PINK ICE color. http://www.blenkoglass.com/. Richard BLenko http://media.herald-dispatch.com/blog/blenko/2007_05_01_archive.html,
the President of Blenko Glass was available to sign glass purchases - the sign said he'd take an hour break - - well Mr. Blenko started signing before 11am and when I left at 2pm the line was very long and Mr. Richard had not stopped. Mr. Blenko made certain each persons glass was signed and he answered their questions, before they moved on.
I always feel proud of our State http://www.westvirginia.com/ when I'm at Blenko Glass, Osburn Glass http://www.osburnmodernglass.com/, or TAMARACK http://www.tamarackwv.com/ the items offered for sale are high quality - the people who work at BLENKO, Osburn, TAMARACK are knowledgeable, and want to tell you about the quality items they have for sale.
The excitement was high, the crowd was large, 93.7 The DAWG was broadcasting from the Blenko Museum (2nd floor of the Visitors Center) http://www.wdgg.fm/ prizes were given every hour to lucky listeners.

Blenko has only 4 big price reduction times each year.
They graciously reduce prices for the Holiday Sale.
A sale is a sale - but at BLENKO our sales are exceptional,
we have great bargains and many new one of a kind items NOT available in the catalogue.
Visit and see for yourself.
