Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

The Wooden Spoon Sorbet

We don't see things as they are. We see things as we are."— Anais Nin


Multi Festival -A Family Event
Yearly Event - Charleston, WVa
First Weekend in August every Year.
(The Festival is a great event: well planned, good entertainment, terrific foods, wide variety of vendors, some seating available - although I would recommend you bring your own seat or blanket if you plan to attend next year.)


In this weekend's paper we read about the locally owned and made fresh fruit sorbet to be sold at Multi-feast, this and listening to Bob Thompsons' Jazz was our evenings goal.

Did we go looking for BLENKO GLASS at the Multi Fest - NO! We went only to find the Sorbet - But while there, I thought how nice it would be if Blenko had a booth, we thought perhaps next year we would volunteer to assist Christy with working the booth. It would be a fun time and great exposure for Blenko, and another WVa made gift for the people visiting from out of state who were buying from vendors from several other states.


After drifting from booth to booth looking over the wares, we happen upon the sorbet tent - and what GUESS WHAT? BLENKO was there! The owners had been given a lovely BLENKO Glass Pitcher that was their first place prize for last year's West Virginia State Fair's recipe challenge.


The Wooden Spoon has a variety of flavors, made from ingredients from local WV farms. I do not have the proper words to describe the deliciousness of the Wildflower Honey and Blueberry, but needless to say I highly recommend it. The Wooden spoon will have a booth at the WV State Fair this weekend in Lewisberg - what a great opportunity to enjoy a fresh,sweet treat while browsing the best of WV-made artistry!

Is this ice cream still available?
Came across this post last month and can find no mention of Wooden Spoon any where else.
