Have they updated the shops at Blenko?
Good news if this is true.
What do you know of the Collectors Group. I read on the other blog mostly from Mountain Rita that the Collectors will not meet and Blenko is also not promoting Collectors
Blenko's marketing/management plans I am certain will be written about in text books should this unorthodox behavior result in success.
Ps Is the factory usually closed for the most of August due to workers vacation schedules?

OSHA an Indian master said something long ago about not bringing to the fields our neighbors' tales of woe fo so that we didn't grow
'tangled' vegetable gardens in our minds.
Bad translation - google OSHA.

annu you mean osho - typo? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRo_L1RiGWw&feature=related
This is the link
You want to hear him say you must pay for what you value Osho would say you don't know the value of anything unless you have been deprived of the same.

Collectors cost Blenko nothing so value to Blenko is same
Waste of life is to complain about any others action is also an Osho statement

The factory and visitors center is open daily in the month of august.
Check the website (blenko) or phone 304 743 9081 to inquire about times the demonstration area is open for glassblowing demos.
