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.

Where do I start? I google Blenko and there are hundreds of post.

May I suggest you start with http://www.blenkoproject.org/ , The Blenko Project website provides a primer for new collectors - an overview of Blenko Glass Company.
Then move on the the Blenko Collectors Four, The Blenko Collectors website, weekly check the http://www.blenkoglass.com/ website so you are familar with the current line.
Reader Alice H writes she often spends one evening a week, checking out Ebay and reading the new google listings for Blenko Glass.
Joining a glass collectors group ( doesn't have to be Blenko) in your area should be a priority.

Google Blenko Glass and then follow the links to Blenko Collectors, Blenko Four, VM Glasshouse, and other sources.
Read everything, buy books, talk to others, join on line groups.
This was our plan 3 years ago and we continue to learn.

Save your money, don't buy for a year and then called Vintage Modern Glass and purchase one costly item at a time.
Wish someone had told me to do this, I have a warehouse of not great Blenko.
