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.

This link should work, and you'll want to make this a Favorite Place.
We wrote about The Collectors Weekly, an online magazine devoted to 'collecting' the link we posted failed to work.
This is the correct link.

I agree - but we should ask her to move theblenkoproject into the reference section on Blenko Glass.
This is an honest web page the only page on Blenko done by a non seller of glass.

OK now I have yet another way to waste time, and empty my wallet.

are you aware that Collector's Weekly is nothing more than a front for Ebay? It is entirely paid for by ebay and does nothing but funnel people to ebay auctions. All their information is just copied from other websites.
This site is a fraud.
As with ebay, half the 'blenko' auctions they are pushing are not even for Blenko.

Most of life is filled with fraud.
Museums w/o walls,
collectors w/o groups
Made in China glass being sold in US glass shops.
It never ends.

Collector's Weekly is expressly designed to try to fool you into believing that they are an independent site with expertise when all they want is for you to spend your money on ebay on misrepresented items that they are endorsing without having any qualifications for endorsing them, no knowledge of what they are promoting (which is anything ebay sells)and frankly without caring. Its unethical.
On the other hand anyone dumb enough to fall for it deserves what they get. It amazes me how may people figure that if its written on the web it must be true.
