New Item at Blenko- SHARK's TEETH

Note and Photo from Holly - Blenko Collector - Huntington area.

This is a new addition - apparently Blenko is now making SHARK'S TEETH! My husband, the avid diver and fearless creature of the deep that he is instantly scooped up one of these babies and ran to the counter like a man being hunted by Jaws himself!
And since we didn't have one - well - I happily obliged. I think it was about $20 and well worth it as it took its rightful place next to its smaller and more toothy counterparts at home.

A BIG Thank you to Holly!

For the children. This and the hearts, and the animals.
Those Blenko people are always

Can you do some of your sleuthing and find out who thought up the sharks' teeth? I saw them on WV day and was too busy talking with Mr. Bayliss about the future direction of his designs for Blenko to remember to ask about the teeth!
