A beautiful article only it sounds like something Hillary wrote, so you are doing a good job for Blenko. Hey!I think I seen one of those must have pieces and bet you could get it cheap. Does anyone sale Blenko in Vegas? You will have to let us know if any collector's are out that way. The city of lights will look like a whole bunch of Blenko sitting around at night. I still need to go to Blenko, I know they do not have a pink bunny only I want one. They make faces, frogs,cowboy hats, hats that bunnies suddenly appear in and fruit and Christmas stuff not to mention all types of bottles, dishes and a WV piece, plus trophy's. Easter and grandbaby already has to many toys.

Hillary
How do you stay on 'top' of the Blenko world?
You seem to know always if BLENKO is mentioned in mag or on TV?
Do you daily google Blenko?
Whats the secret?
How is dent school?
Plans for spring break? I'm betting you will visit Glass Plants along the west coast? Or visit glassmakers over the age of 80 living in new england?
Waiting for response.

really Beautiful....regarding other things in the magazine I would say everything was really exceptional except the face jugs section..it's really creepy.

I have a collection of "face" vases in my little Morgantown home - once you actually SEE the face vases they aren't creepy - - - but they are great conversation starters.
If you come across one there in St Louis I suggest you purchase it - the value continues to increase. gooogle Hank Adams.
Great designer who just 'happen' to work with this factory for a few years. Awesome Man - Great Designs.
Thanks for reading the article and for your interest in Blenko.

More about stoppers....I visited Blenko, Thursday 13th, and talked to a really nice lady, Carol Robinson I think. She said they make stoppers occasionaly and as a matter of fact they recently found a nice cache of them upstairs. I told her that collectors would appreciate having them available to buy.
