Bridgett should be able to answer this question. She has been collecting for years.

When I was in WV for the first Blenko Collectors Convention, I visited Purple Moon; great shop! Vintage and new Blenko available. There were a couple of other places where I found some nice vintage pieces, but where we went I cannot remember. We were staying in Huntington, and went south and west. Google antique malls for the area, and you'll probably find several.

Most of us do not live in or around WV
so having a list of stops
like Bronze Look, Purple Moon
the shops of Milton, is a helpful tool.
I usually fly into Charleston or Huntington rent a car for the week and then drive north to Pittsburgh and South to Lexington looking for glass.

I agree I went to the Purple Moon
2 years ago, found a couple Blenko items, also bought some vintage jewelry. This place is loaded with special items.
If you go give yourself time to check every shelf.

Supporting small bussinessmen in your local community is important, my suggestion is to find one you like, give him photos and duplicate catalogs, work with partners. I believe in the Woolworth principle ' A little bit in added to what you've got gives you a little bit more.'
