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.

Saturday over 4,000 people had their glass signed by Richard Blenko between 9 -1 o'clock. Richard stayed over to sign - the lines were very long all day.
PINK ICE and RUBY were the highlights of the event, however there were many wonderful items in every color. The Visitors Center was extremely busy all day.
One big table of HANK ADAMS items marked less than 50% of the VISITORS CENTER PRICE - which is probably 75% off retail. GREAT SALE!
The CHRISTMAS ITEMS were all 50% or LESS!
IF you haven't been the BLENKO GLASS in Milton, West Virginia (I-64 Milton Exit) make the trip today. They are open, the sale continues until Feburary 14th.
Blenko has many items, all handcrafted.

OUTTED! I was Not there.
My uncle took photos for me, which I will post when I find time.
Sol did you meet Richard?

I think Richard is not a real person, but a giant plywood figure they drag out for photos. You'll have to write to say he is 'real'
he does not age, based on the photos.

Solomon running like a solo-man in no mans land and always spelling hillary as hilary. He ought to be hilarious.

Richard Blenko is alive, well and very handsome is photos and in flesh.
These over 50 eyes and the eyes of my over 80 mother were both sure he was alive, well and very much looking as photographed.
What is your problem?
