EASTER fill the basket with West Virginia Glass!




OK I'm becoming like the commerical for BLENKO....but it's almost EASTER and the very nicest gifts are BLENKO GLASS.
At Blenko you can purchase a glass Easter Basket for your table - then fill it with BLENKO Glass eggs, or you might purchase a Glass Easter Bunny for your favorite niece or nephew.

Blenko Easter Baskets are a long term purchase. Mine is over a decade old, I brought it to my college dorm room in 2002 - and since then it comes out of storage each April. The original cost was probably $25-30. My BLENKO GLASS Easter basket ( I have the bunny also) continues to increase in value each year - and it brings joy to me - also it serves as a conversation starter, as people will often comment on the 'beauty'.


IF you haven't started shopping at BLENKO GLASS http://www.blenkoglass.com/ (online shopping is encourage, often you will find coupons on their truly AWESOME website) EASTER Is a great time to start. Lovely pastel colors, baskets, bunnies, eggs....BLENKO HAS IT!


Buy Made in the USA always and when possible BUY MADE IN WEST VIRGINIA. Support your neighbors - your local craftsmen. BLENKO GLASS, Milton, West Virginia 304 743 9081.

Hilly,
You are a living commerical for Blenko Glass. Doing a great job, but you must realize Target, TJMaxx, and Macy's all have glass from India and China
and its pretty and inexpensive.
