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.

Snow . . Ice.... these things don't stop the serious Shoppers! Recently I read the price of vintage Blenko is down. Personally I have not seen any of the items on my "MUST HAVE" list at reduced prices. However, if the prices are LOW this is the time to BUY Vintage Blenko. Or you might just drive down to Milton and buy NEW Blenko and wait for it to age (smile). Buying quality and handmade in any market is a good Value. check out ebay - the Purple Moon on Capitol Street in Charleston, The shops along the main drag in Milton, The Milton Flea Market.....Taylors Books, DIXIE"S ON LINE, if you have other special places or on line shops - let me know and I'll add them.

Buying Low Selling High
age old advice.
Do you promote the reselling of Blenko?
Is the photo something you have on the 'must have' list?

This very piece is on my 'to buy' list.
Husted - Wayne created this.
Join the Blenko Collectors Society and within a year I'll be asking YOU questions about who designed what glass.

This is a 'vintage' piece - but you might be lucky enough to find one on EBAY or in an estate sale.
Good Luck!
