Where To Buy Blenko?

The lovely Vintage Blenko and American Glass - where to buy? This is often the subject of your email to theblenkoproject@aol.com . While its a known fact, I'm a student without money, so I don't shop vintage. One of the places I can strongly recommend is a seller Dreama Wood from the Montgomery, West Virginia area. Dreama did a workshop for the BLENKO COLLECTORS SOCIETY on color identification of Blenko Glass - it was an extensive study leading to a page on the Blenko Collectors Four website. Dreama and her family like many others in the Blenko Collectors Society collect BLENKO and American Glass as a family hobby.
Check her out of EBAY - if you don't see the item you are looking for, ask her to help? If you find water bottles with handles...Call me!

Frustrated with life and your newspapers home page. The changes are horrible.
Looks like a big on line ad.
The blogs are no longer listed, did they disown you all?

I would also highly recommend D & K Collectibles/Drema Wood for vintage glass. Extremely knowledgeable, very nice to deal with, accurate description, fair pricing and shipping. I have purchased several less expensive Blenko items, both a money and display space issue. They also have new Blenko.
I check e-bay a lot to see what is out there, you can learn a lot, and quickly realize that much of what you see called "Blenko" is not. A great help when you are looking in person. Sometimes I buy an item but a lot more looking than buying.
Damon Crane, in New York, has some lovely items, pricey but many less commonly seen items. His view is not that of the average collector, but we all collect for different reasons and all reasons are valid.
Hope this helps with the questions on where to buy vintage Blenko.

My secretary has bought from this seller.
Another reader who recommends her.
Can you provide us with other sellers, my office staff often gets spoofed on ebay.

I concur
a list of approved by Hillary sellers would be good
or a list made up of
suggestions from readers?
Can you do this?
