Hello to all my Blenko friends, its been a very long summer. My wish is everyone found the glass they wanted or needed. The price was equal to what Bruce ( the lucky Texan) would pay, and the quality was equal to what DC ( the NYC seller) would acquire.
The economy is frightening to many. As collectors we should be buying during this time. The prices have never been lower. I'm seeing older glass in national auctions, glass that has been only in storeage for years. Check not ebay but the national auction houses. The reader who said be cautious and read everything was correct. My only other suggestion is to buy, buy, buy these prices won't return in the immediate future.

Hello there. Can someone please go to the Visitors center or post some pics of the selection. If Blenko is trying to sell these Pumpkins, people need to see them. There are only two on the website which are the same ones all year round. Please someone post pics of the new pumpkins that are at the gift shop. THANKS!!!
