Gift Shop at Blenko was ReStocked TODAY!

At Blenko Glass in Milton, West Virginia the Gift Shop / Visitors Center tables are completely filled with glassware for you to purchase.

New Glass from the warehouse was put into the Gift Shop this morning.

If you were at the gift shop on Saturday and noticed the tables were near empty, come back! The men at Blenko Glass restocked the Gift Shop today says Connie of Blenko Glass.

We do not have photos of available glass, may I suggest you drive to Milton, or phone 304 743 9081 about the glass. HJH

Today morning we had the local news director phone your house to arrange an interview & trip to Milton. He was told by you I assume, you were not speaking for Blenko, and he should phone Blenko Glass at . . . and number was given. A brush off? Why would you not agree to drive down to Blenko with him? Getting coverage in the Northern panhandle is not easy.
Answer your phone, so you can make me understand this inaction.

I cannot drive hours to shop at Blenko only to find empty shelves. All you all who can drop in and check on a regular basis are lucky. Not a good idea for people who live hours and hours away.

Rita Phone 304 743 9081 Before you drive. Ask Diane or Mindy they will be very honest about what is there.
Blenko has glass to sell.
At the end of the day, many days Blenko sells until the shelves are almost empty then they restock.
PHONE if you are concerned.
BLENKO has glass to sell.
If you are interested in buying Blenko at the gift shop prices, then head out to Milton.
