Where To Buy Blenko?

If you live in German Village, Columbus, Ohio - then Helen Winnemore's is the place.

RE: Signing in Columbus
I have nothing to do with the BLENKO schedule. Have your dealer phone BLENKO - or else order on line and ask for your item to be signed before its shipped ( I think there is a $10 or $20 fee - but its well worth the fee).

The story is I was in Columbus twice before my birth and I've returned a couple times yearly since birth. My family is German and we 'adore' German Village.
Helen W's is too expensive for me - I'm a very poor student - however - my Mom has been known to shop at HW's.
