Nevermind, i found the Birthdate for WV: June 20th which is Saturday this yr.

I do believe there would be limited pieces available for purchase, when would they be available for purchase online? I would like to buy this for someone special in VA.

These are NEVER available online.
You can only get them by standing in line and they are usually gone within 30 minutes of opening

Sorry, I don't think you can buy the brithday vase on line. I think you have to go to the VC. on june 20 of each year. And what I have hear they sell very fast, most of the time they are gone in a hour or so.
They only make one for ever year the wv has been a state so I know it will be less than 150.

LET US SEE IF BLENKO IS
"STILL STANDING ON JUNE 20th WITH A WORK CREW" BEFORE WE MAKE RESERVATIONS.
AND PHANI WITH THE NEW YOUNG HIP ADMIN I BET THEY SELL THE THINGS ON LINE ALSO.
IT WILL MAKE MORE $$ AND WHO CARES ABOUT TRADITION FOR THE LAST VASE?

Hilary did you find out when the furniture sale is at top of rock? also how much for the house? I could commute to huntington - we now drive 35 miles and hubby drives 62 so we can live out his dream - a farm-.

Now I must say to this ..where is the positive attitude and support of Blenko??? It's employees have been very loyal and hard working.
Do you have inside info that the public or Blenko employees dont have to think they may not be open for the Bday piece?????Or that this will be the Last???????????????
