Post Holiday Sale - Blenko Glass

What's new at Blenko? Is there a 2011 line?
What do you suggest we purchase?
Madge S.
The Blenko Glass www.blenkoglass.com hasn't been updated to include a 2011 line. If you have not purchased these items ( see photo) you'll want to buy them.
The Bravo line by Bayliss - is retro - these pieces look as if they were made in the 50s and 60s . I like them in ruby which is difficult to find. They are being made now in dreamcicle (sp) which is an orange color new to Blenko ( well not more than 3 - 4 years old).
The other item picture here is an 11 inch optic vase, again this is a remake of a classic design.
I have this one in Blue - the label says it was designed 'in house ' at Blenko.
Don't wait for a new line - buy what you like- the prices have never been better for handcrafted Blenko Glass.

Shop #7 Keith Morris, the Finley boy and other made this as part of the Blenko Glass Festival if I'm not out of my league?

Three cheers to Blenko and Katie Trippe for keeping Buffets motto.
