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.

Blenko Visitors Center - OPEN and Shelves Have been restocked.

Notice: Today my Mother was at Blenko Glass, she reports Mindy and Connie as saying are receiving a NEW STOCKING today evening. This will include more Designer Samples, many pieces of very old glass - many samples that never made the line. Many one of a time or small quantity items. If you haven't been to Blenko Glass for the ' We Might Be Closing Sale" GO NOW!!!!
Mindy told my Mom the word is they have enough glass for 7-10 days. Unless sales are brisk.
Note: This DOES NOT mean Blenko will close, we have no inside information, only that the current supply (furnaces are closed) will be running out.
They are now selling items that have been in storage or just 'forgotten' about.
If you happen to purchase anything new or different, send an email.
If you purchased the GOLD BOWL that was a designer sample, please send photo. My Mom couldn't stop talking about the bowl.
She bowl a designer sample - wedding bowl - for her Nephew Shan, who was married on 2/20/09 I'll post a photo when it arrives.

Post photo of what your Mom bought.
Also did someone not say they were sending photos of the current available glass?
While I live within an hour and work near Blenko (huntington)
many of the commentors live out of state. Would be helpful.

Last week very little remainded and many tables were nearly empty.
What gives with them?
More employee cars than customer cars & they aren't making glass?

We went down last Wed and found very little. The designer items and samples must go quickly same day they are offered.
