BLENKO GLASS Gift Shop - OPEN TODAY

BLENKO GLASS VISITOR CENTER / GIFT SHOP IS OPEN THIS WEEK, The Museum upstairs is also open! The gift shop has an excellent supply of Blenko and WV made glass tableware. Reader Bridgett reported that on Sunday she saw several lamps still available at the gift shop. She also noted the clearance tables in the back of the VC had glass and were frequently refilled (these tables contain items that have been marked down more than once - they are usually 25 - 30 % BELOW wholesale. All items in the gift shop are less than retail price. hjh Questions? Phone 304 743 9081

Question for you Hillary.
Early in Feb I phoned to order gift for my BF Blenko could not take the order, nor would they process a future order.
Apparent indication they have no plan to file Chapter 13 or reopen.
Check this for yourself. Try to place an order.

The prices at the gift shop remain the same - which was less than retail by about 50%
there are many tables with markdowns.
Buying Blenko at these prices is a good deal for anyone. Sue, I would not wait. If I weren't 2 l/2 hours away I would go daily - just to see what came from the warehouse.

Note: Connie at Blenko Glass said they will notify us if there are changed in the TIME OF OPERATION or changes in PRICE so check their website and this blog for notices of change.
