Response to Readers Question

Hillary tell me one item of Blenko from 2007 , your opinion only, that will greatly increase in value. I want to buy a piece to keep but want it to increase in value.
Lou the Blue piece in the photo was made for the
State Capitol - Cultural Center in March of 2007. The piece was limited to 150. I would ask someone at the cultural Center or Blenko about this item.
Another item that will definitely increase is the
BLENKO GLASS WEST VIRGINIA BIRTHDAY 2007. This one you will not be able to find. People start before midnight getting in line to buy these each June 20th at Blenko Glass.
A Blenko Collector and friend Steve Bair once told me to buy the BLENKO that you love , as you must LIVE with it. If you love it when you purchase the increase in value will be a gift! Living with something you don't like or enjoy - - - well is this ever a good investment?
