Blenko Paperweights

We're hearing you loud and clear - You love paper weights! You want to know more about Blenko Paper weights.
Well. . . . I don't own paper weights, I do know Blenko Glass http://www.blenkoglass.com/ continues to make paperweights. The vintage Blenko paperweights are highly sought after by collectors.
Tim Alonzo of Texas sent 6 photos from his large paper weight collection, we'll be publishing the six photos, and perhaps we can persuade Tim to provide more photo and information about paperweights and paper weight collecting. hjh

Would loving "O brother where are thou" make one love bluegrass music? Ive seen the movie many times and I am OK with the music, I dont have a personal collection but I can watch a band play. I will set up a small studio to photograph all of your collection and lets catalog all of it with some history etc for friends and family. How is PHC treating you? Belated 'Ugadi' wishes.
