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.

Blast From The Past! Paper Weights, Mushrooms, Holiday Ornaments.
Blenko Glass Co. is returning to the past - this is a good thing - in the Visitors Shop currently there are paper weights made by BLENKO employees, also you'll find Mushrooms (another paperweight) these items have not been available at the Visitors Shop for a decade.
My suggestion is 1) if you live close enough - make the Visitors Center a weekly destination, 2) if you live out of state or more than an hour away, PHONE 304 743 0981 Diana or Mindy will be pleased to select and mail your items.
The ANNUAL HOLIDAY SALE is fast approaching, this year the SALE is going to be THE BEST! A wide array of BLENKO MADE ornaments, I have photos of a couple very light weight bulbs blown by Randy Rider, its my understanding for the HOLIDAY SALE they will have a large collection of BLENKO MADE ornaments. Blenko has sold ornaments for a long time - however - BLENKO MADE ORNAMENTS have been difficult to find. This year the selection of BLENKO MADE is large, the other ornaments are nice - but BLENKO MADE is exceptional.
In addition to the regular ornaments, Blenko is also doing the 3 ornament set, and having artist Lemly do hand painted ornaments. Both of these will make ideal Wedding or Birthday Gift, House Guest Gift, there are so many uses for these limited number signed ornaments .
Make this Holiday one in which you buy only quality made items, please
BUY MADE IN THE USA, BUY MADE IN WEST VIRGINIA and when its available BUY MADE IN MILTON, WV. hjh
Note: Blenko has a small number of the Festival Of Glass vase, if you haven't purchased this item, phone Diana or Mindy for update on selection.
