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.

Kissin Kate's Antiques

Hi Hillary and All,

We at "Kissin Kate's Antiques' have Good News and Bad News to share with you tonight!

The Good News is that I have discovered that it is much harder to close a business than it is to start a business, so we are still Open on Main St. and still loaded with the West Virginia glass that your readers ( and Tim and I ! ) love.

The Bad News is that we have to be out of town at an auction on June 20, the day that I know many of you will be making your annual pilgrimage to Blenko for the birthday piece. I am going to keep the store open until 6:00 p.m. tomorrow night ( Friday ) for those of you coming in from out of town. We are only one exit East of Milton. You can get complete directions from the interstate by visiting our website at http://www.kissinkatesantiques.com/. It's easy!

If you are staying in town until Sunday, I would be glad to run over and let you in Sunday morning. We hate to miss the festivities at Blenko and catching up with all of you, however I have been waiting for this auction for two years and need to be there. Remember, if you stop by the store and see something you like in the window, we will gladly ship!

Thank you all for your support and understanding. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
