Secret to Successful Collecting?

"Just lots of looking and patience"

Moral of this story is to KNOW what you are looking for! Check out the Blenko Museum, Collectors Four and other websites BEFORE you shop! Be an informed buyer. But BUY Made in West Virginia Glass.

Remember its always less expensive to buy Blenko Glass at the Visitors Center in Milton, West Virginia 304 743 9081

Hi HillaryJust wanted to respond to the request for 903-4 dent vases that you put out on the blog. We have the same as are posted with the additional 903-2 dent in Chartreuse. All of these pieces were found for very reasonable prices. The ruby piece I picked up as a "Buy it Now" on EBAY for $5.00 one night a couple years back. The others about the same. Just lots of looking and patience. Good luck.Bruce Specht
