Will you show these in other available colors?

Bridgett, The Blenko Co, website shows the colors they are available in. Also, if you call the Visitors Center and ask if they have them in any colors not on-line, you may luck out and get something special. I've had good luck doing this several times.

No it is not available on the website.
If it were I would not ask.
I twice before emailed Hilary.
I won't buy what I can't see.
Thank you.

This piece is brand new and we do not have samples made in the other available colors yet. As soon as we do, we will make the pics available.

I am sick of the praises.
I left this blog as my emails were never answered.
My questions were never answered,
and my photos were not identified.
I left because I thought your er our glass lady was incompetent.
Overwhelmed or overworked or just incompetent.

sweetdoc; I am beginning to think your name is inappropriate. Your comments and criticisms are not very sweet.At 10:29 AM, January 15, 2009 I posted the following comments. Sweetdoc; Send me your email address to (larry@serenityantiques.com) and I will send you the Identifications I was able to make. Thanks. Larry from TX
Hillary is a full time student who has this blog as a labor of love. I for one admire her for it. If you can make it better, do so, if not let the rest of us enjoy what is so freely given.
Hillary, I will submit some photos of some of my more unusual pieces of WV glass. Thanks for the good work. larry from TX

Who would cross the Bridge of Blenko He must answer me these questions three.
Ask me the questions, Blenko Milton bridgekeeper. I'm not afraid.

My issue is the lack of answers to questions, simple questions like
may I see this in the available colors its not on your website. When is the collectors group meeting, what are the dates of this Festival? Simple questions and Hilary refuses to respond. Time and time again.
Also I have sent glass etc and often she does not respond to my emails.
This is rude don't you think.
Youth gets one by sometimes but not for all things.
I am not so angry today, only trying to make my friends understand my frustration.
Also the weather is bad and we haven't had a good road trip in three weeks. When I moved to a rural area it was with the understanding my weekends would be filled with trips.
Now I use also these trips to hunt for glass where ever I go my Pina book travels. Hubby dreams of a day when I part with Pina and return to searching for the best chief.

Bridgett, since the piece in question, 2809, is a Bravo piece, I would think that it is safe to assume that it will be availabe in the same colors that the other Bravo pieces are available. That would be Ruby, Dreamcicle, Clover and Electric Blue.

Doc, the dates for the BCS Convention and the Festival of Glass have not been set as of this date. The BCS should occur in early August as in previous years. Check out http://www.blenkocollectors.com/blenkocollectorssociety.htm for any updates concerning the BCS. Blenko sould be informing us of any upcoming events on their web site.

Please stop blaming Hillary for unanswered questions concerning the BCS or current events at Blenko. Contact Karin via the BCS site for BCS info and Blenko itself concerning current events. Blenko has a toll free number. To answer many of these questions she has to do the same things that we would have to do in order to get the answers. That would be contact Karin or someone at Blenko. It seems to me that it would be much easier for us to go directly to the horse's mouth than to ask Hillary to do it for us.
