Happy Birthday to BLENKO Collector Skip Copley

Today is the birthday of Skip Copley - Skip is a realtor/ broker in the Mount Pleasant South Carolina - Myrtle Beach South Carolina area.
He and his daughter Julia, own a unique Blenko Glass Collection. Skip's family and friends tells me they will spend the week end, at his lake house, discussing Blenko, jet skiing, water boarding, eating and trading glass with one another.
Skip's collection include items from all the Blenko Designers, many West Virginia Birthday Vases, and a collection of 'end of day' items made and signed by various Blenko Glass workers.
Note: Know a Blenko Collector with outstanding Blenko Glass? Submit their name and address to theblenkoproject@aol.com and we'll ask for permission to photo and display their glass for everyone to view on the Heart of Glass Blog.
Have a great item of Blenko, or a new 'find'? Heart of Glass welcomes your photos, your stories, and tidbits of information about Blenko and American Glass. hjh
