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.

Heart of Glass NEEDS Your Photos & Blenko Stories.

This week, consider taking photos of your BLENKO, the Blenko you are selling, the Blenko in your dining room, living room. The Blenko in boxes under your bed.
Your special pieces, and the pieces you know nothing about!
Share your photos and Blenko stories.
I won't ask you to share your favorite Blenko Shopping spots, as everyone writes with
the names of shops, and flea market vendors but attach a note saying, "Don't print".
However, if you are willing to share the names of your favorite
Vintage Blenko shops - Blog readers want this information.
We have about 30 very new collectors who read daily, and write to me often, as the long time blog readers know - - - I have little free time for shopping, and even less money.
For the new collectors having a list of reference sites, names of quality ebay vendors, and wood and brick store fronts provides a safer way to venture into the world of Blenko Glass Collecting!
We know this is a very busy time of year, and life is hetic, so, just as you have the time, take the photos, and send them to theblenkoproject@aol.com , if time permits tell us about how you acquired the glass, or what attracts you to Blenko.
