Les Womack - Holiday Limited Editon Blenko Glass
We just received this bit of news RE: BLENKO GLASS HOLIDAY SALE!
If you read the blog - you know we're big fans of retired Blenko Glass foreman LES WOMACK. We owe several of his angels and snowmen, I keep the angels on display all year long.
Mr. Womack returns to Blenko yearly to produce Blenko Angels and Snowmen. This year Les Womack will produce limited editions items. You'll want to pre order (304 743 9081 with your credit card) to assure you are one of the lucky 50 people.
http://www.pfcps.com/ PFC gift cards. My blog friend Chris http://not-my.blogspot.com/ recommends using the PFC gift cards for all your holiday purchases. Heart of Glass recommends you pay with cash or check. Increasing your debt to buy gifts is never good.
The best gift is the gift of your time - take the children, the grandchildren, the neighbors kids and drive down to Blenko Glass - the observation deck is open (check website for dates and times) and its free! Wonderful way to spend a morning. hjh
The following info is from Christy of Blenko - Christy is Les' daughter.
"Dad will have 2 pieces showcased this year. A very pretty, petite ruffle basket called "First Snow" It has blue and white swirls running through the body and a special angel we are calling the "Christmas Angel" which has all the colors of Christmas in her body, red, white, and green with a bit of sparkle. Dad will sign each piece, and they are limited to 50 each production. All numbered on the bottom."
I'll publish photos when they arrive.
