June 20th West Virginia Birthday.

Blenko Glass in Milton, W.Va. 304 743 9081 will once again on June 20th continue the 28 year tradition of producing a one of a kind item to be sold in limited edition (#145 this year)
IN HONOR OF WEST Virginia's Statehood. West Virginia celebrates June 20th as its Birthday! And BLENKO MAKES THE "West Virginia BIRTHDAY glass" in honor of this occasion. If you haven't started a BIRTHDAY COLLECTION - let me say its very difficult almost impossible to find the entire collection. HOWEVER, the 2007 or 2008 make a great starting point. START now to collect BLENKO. This is the last remaining Antique Glass Manufacturer in the United States.

With Dent School it is always one exam or another - my national boards (part 1) will be after xmas.
Re: smell and $$ - I need to learn to think more about $$, to date I have not.
Its my belief that we have only 'one set' of permanent teeth and we must care for them - trying never to loose one. Who said a tooth is more valuable than its weight in diamonds? He was correct. Education is the key - I'd like to be involved in a national program to raise awareness of the need for oral health care from birth.
Dental Office & Blenko - in my dreams - I'd love to have Don Lemley design and implement the glass in an office. The facts are I'm a very poor dent student - who awaits a 'job' offer.
I do hope that I am known always as some with 'integrity.'
Thank you for commenting and reading the blog. Also for your love of WV GLASS.

Where is the sale?
What time should we be there?
How many will be sold?
Who signed them?
How many can each person buy?
Can we order over the phone?
Will they give a discount to business?
I am also looking for another 2007, do you have suggestions?
We also need 16 other ones - looking on ebay w/o any positive luck.
I will wait for answers.
