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.

question : Antique Shop
Hillary, When will Kissin Kate reopen in So Charleston. Stopped by the window looked full, but no one was there? Paulett Dotson
I wrote to Kissin Kate's and their response is below: Hope this answers your queston!
Thanks for asking! We are currently open for business on Main St. However, I have lost my wonderful assistant, hopefully just temporarily. . Therefore my hours are a little sketchy because I am trying to keep the store open by myself ( with a stress fracture!)
I am trying to be consistently open on Fridays and Saturdays and as much as possible the rest of the week. I am encouraging people who are coming in from out of town to make an appointment via the info link on my website: www.kissinkatesantiques.com. I hate to hear that someone made a visit and we were closed!
We are loaded with good Blenko - firsts, artist proofs, vintage... Also many other WV glassmakers. We took new photos yesterday and will update our website next week.
Tim has signed up for several classes at the Blenko Festival August 7 - 8. I will be keeping the store open for those people who want to stop by. We are only one exit down from the Blenko exit. Easy!
Nice to hear from you again and hope to see you all soon!
