Buy Made In West Virginia

Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there..."Will Rogers

Dave Osburn of Osburn Modern Glass made this item for me, 2 of my special friends received their PHARM D (doctor of Pharmacy) degrees this summer. He made one in gold/red and this one in shades of green (my friends favorite colors). UNIQUE items and oh so affordable!

Before you purchase a WEDDING GIFT, A GRADUATION GIFT, Birthday Gift, Host Gift check out WEST VIRGINIA CRAFTSMEN you will be surprised at whats available. I've learned if you want something and you don't see it - ASK - can you make this? How much will it cost? Many times the artist will say NO! or the cost will be too much (for me as a student) but often - the artist - will take the idea and produce a wonderful item - a unique item - one you will be proud to give and the recipient will proudly own. hjh

He is the same person bridget
he retired and opened in the space another retired blenko man
once had. I was there a month or so ago.
Great glass, also he is at the Beckly place Tamarack.
You should include his place in any WV trip.
