A couple years ago Mr. Walter and Mr. Don Blenko stepped in to aide Mr. WH Blenko and Blenko Glass. The Blenko Family feels devotion to West Virginia and to the men and women who work at Blenko Glass. We as collectors and West Virginians need to also be loyal to Blenko. I'm not certain what we can do to help. Other than BUY BLENKO! Tell your friends and neighbors in other states about Blenko! Word of mouth is the very best advertisement. Quality keeps them coming back!
Its a difficult proposition making glass in today's economy but BLENKO knows their product is A+ nothing compares to handmade West Virginia glass. In quality - but price - well competing with the imports in price - just can't be done. . . . SO we must depend on YOU the consumer to THINK before you buy, BUY quality handcrafted made in the USA products. Check the label.
Keep the JOBS at homes. Buy locally grown foods, fabrics, glass, dishes, marbles, furniture, wood for your fire place.
We need your photos and stories about BLENKO please send to firstname.lastname@example.org if you don't get a note from me within 5 days - resend I'm having trouble with SPAM control. hjh
