Myers Vases

Hi Hillary,

Just wanted to pass along another photo that I snapped today of some Myers vases. I tend to favor Myers as my favorite designer and these two larger vases are often overlooked. Both of these I picked up as miss listings on Ebay. The Turquoise #7027 just arrived today while I have had the Lemon #6922 for a couple of years. The Olive #6424 was sitting in the window of one of our local shops this morning just waiting for me.

I want to shop where Bruce and his wife shop
or at the very least go to visit their glass on occassion so I can take photos of what to shop for.
These two have an eye for beauty and some how they know Blenko.
I bought the books.
I look at the Damon Crane website and I occassionally buy from Crane but I want to choose my own stuff and have stories to tell about the one I found.
So far I have no 'finds' or stories.
Thank You to
Bruce and Wife
and To Larry and the Texas Blenko Collectors for photos and inspiration.
Everyone my request is for more stories and more photos of your glass and also if you care to your familes I like knowing real people collect Blenko.
Not just perky dentist.

I spent 8 years in Texas and never once did I see Blenko.
I leave Texas and learn all the most wonderful blenko is located in texas.
When I return next year to work I want to become a part of the Texas Blenko group.
