Your questions: Where to purchase Blenko lamps..

This photo is for the folks writing to ask about Blenko Lamps - I don't have photos of the lamps available at the Visitors Center in Milton - - - when they arrive I'll publish. I am going to publish lamps available from ebay or local vendors. . . until the Blenko Glass Visitors Center is able to send photos. This one is currently (for 15 more days) available on Ebay.

Hello -
Was sent this link by a close friend and fellow collector, as she was aware I am in the process of finding a new home for some of my vintage Blenko lamps - designs are Myers', and they have all the original hardware, including finials. eBay is a bit pricey right now, and I will be delighted to sell mine at a bargain to sincere collectors...

Hello :)
I am a long-time fan of your site, but only as an observer...a friend and fellow collector, aware that I am currently in search of a new home for a few of my vintage Blenko lamps, encouraged me to speak up and answer this request for locating lamps.
The lamps I have available are Myers' designs, and have the original hardware, including finials. The colors are Tangerine and Olive Green.
I have been fortunate to connect with some great folk around W.V. who offered these lamps to me at an affordable price, a practice I intend to carry forward. I can be contacted through Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/blenkogallery

Thanks, Tfarris
