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.

FOOTBALL Then Shopping for BLENKO!

West Virginia University and MARSHALL both have important games today! If you haven't purchased your BLENKO GLASS items with TEAM LOGOS do so this weekend. They'll last a life time. We have for years used the GOLD AND BLUE big bowls from BLENKO for chips n dip on game day (these are very inexpensive between 14-22 if purchased at the Visitors Center) they compliment the LOGO products.
When you buy BLENKO GLASS, you are buying MADE IN US, also you are being GREEN by avoiding the use of paper plates and plastic throw away. BLENKO GLASS on line or at the Milton Blenko Glass Visitors Center. www.blenkoglass.com. FIESTA another WV Company also has logo items. The outlet store is in Flatwoods on I-64. www.hlchina.com . HAPPY SHOPPING! Buy Made In West Virginia when ever possible!

NOTE:

Week 2 College Football Betting Odds (copied from net)
Submitted by Dan Shapiro on Fri, 09/05/2008 - 23:40.
West Virginia had become the most bet on College Football team heading into Saturday morning. The matchup - West Virginia vs. East Carolina - featured a line of -7 ½ on the visiting Mountaineers.
This line briefly opened at West Virginia -9 but has mainly been hovering between -8 and -7 ½ as of late Friday night. Pinnacle Sports, which does not accept US customers, had taken this one all the way down to -7.
The idea that odds makers are encouraging action on the Mountaineers speaks volumes that they must believe East Carolina can cover or even win within the 7 point margin. Over 75 percent of betting action was coming in on West Virginia at press time. BetOnline.com, which offers either reduced juice or a 20 percent signup bonus, was offering this one at West Virginia -7 ½.
Nearly 80 percent of betting action was also on the East Carolina money line with a payout potential of $260 for every $100 bet if East Carolina were to win outright.

Am I the only person who thinks Blenko is too expensive for the college logo items?
I'll wait for a sale.
While I continue to buy the paper weights and fish like an addict I must draw a line somewhere.

sweetdoctor I was told they have to pay a lot of money for rights to the logo.
Hilary do you have any updates from Ravi, Ram, Phani, Mountain Rita and Holly? I miss hearing from them.

Margie is correct, Wade told me the cost for 'permission' is high.
Blenko employees do not receive a discount on LOGO ITEMS.
I doubt they will be found in the sale bend.
Buy NOW while they are available.

Good morning Yes I am running late trying to catch up. Football! I need a job to help make those young men counter attack the other team. Could of cut me a switch this weekend. Still my number one football team and I'd set on the bench until the ref's got their glasses and rules right. Yes you pay to put the name on something so much a letter I do beleive. Got that WVU on my list of things to get.
