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.

I feel stupid when I read the blog and people know colors and numbers and years of production.
How do you all know this?

Don't include me - in the 'you all' but many readers and a large number of collectors know all the line item numbers and can site a 1,000 or so colors. These folk read and study, shop a lot, and belong to small groups that promote glass. I would recommend Dean Six's group in Weston, WV if you can make it to WV once a month. Email me at theblenkoproject@aol.com for additional info.

One thing I've found with glass collectors - all are willing to share information. So ASK, when you have a question, you'll get answers, many answers. Good Luck!
