The Unusual - The Difficult - Blenko Glass Antique Department Can Do Anything!

Looking for something different? Have a window or opening question? Need something made and think perhaps it might be great in GLASS.

Phone 304 743 9081 and speak with Don Lemley the Antique Glass Director / Supervisor.
Over the years Don has used his expertise and knowledge of 'what the men at Blenko CAN do" to create many one of kind awards, unique items.

Recently on a visit, I saw a sushi platter (20 remaining ), many unique glass blocks (see photo of hand), and glass bulbs, glass mobiles, glass windows etc. The men at Blenko can made awards - and most everything they produce is less expensive than the alternative and the item is unique, handcrafted by West Virginia craftsmen.

Brides need gifts for the wedding party, Blenko can personalize anything, they can make glass tiles for you in most any shape and color. Anniversary gifts, family reunions . . . .BLENKO GLASS is the answer. http://www.blenkoglass.com/

Hilly Product Placement is Key to Blenko's Success.
Rick and I spoke of this at great lengths.
No one seems to be proactive at the factory.
My patient brought in the attached story this day.
Do something of this nature for Blenko.
It's Marketing 101," Halliday said. "We know we have a viable product."

The Kids Crooked House Web site traffic typically gets 800 visitors a day, but traffic increased to 170,000 within minutes of the show's announcement of the playhouses, and jumped to 370,000 through Tuesday afternoon.

Since most customers like to speak to a customer service agent over the phone with such large orders, the three telephone workers are going to get some help soon, Halliday said. The company has nine employees, and 2.5 of those are full-time positions.

Many of the increased orders on Tuesday were from indoor theme parks looking to add Western towns for kids to play in, for example, he said.

The business sold 12 homes in its first year of business, in 2006, and business took off in 2007 after Halliday spent $30 on marketing on Yahoo. A total of 500 playhouses have been sold since the business started.

One day after appearing on a national TV show with millions of viewers, Kids Crooked House is seeing more business than it has since it opened.

FYI people in my group aren't able to make the comments work, while I am having no issue.
Have you had other complaints?
If someone from Blenko or Hilary even watched Kate +8 they would be required to visit a shrink after.
