This is good, it will allow me to shop before I go to work.
Now about the 5pm closing? Can we extend this one day per week?

The hours are never stable at the VC sometimes they are open after 4 sometimes not.
I would recommend phoning same day.

Oh dear Hilly
You seem not to understand, many people have grown tired of all the Blenko drama, if there is a big sale they will come, otherwise No!

Your statement was cruel, Blenko's financial difficulties are real, also it would appear Hilary does all she can to generate interest in West Virginia glass.
Some of us have great affection for the Milton glass company and for all glass sold at Tamarack.
Our collections of glass are growing and we are learning.
If I were a nice person, I'd say a prayer for you, or else stick a pin in the James doll.

Did you understand that WV Janis now has a photo blog?
I followed her link from this blog.
Great site, you should post about it.
With her permission of course.
Also anything new about the Top of Rock house and furnishings?

Inner Peace

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

As Blenko Collectors we can of course all sleep well and we have no need for other stress control, right?

ANNONYMOUS SURELY U KNOW :WORKERS ARE NOT IMPORTANT TO BLENKO
ONLY OFFICE STAFF
CHECK TIME SHEETS MORE HOURS FOR OFFICE STAFF THAN WORKER BEES.
