HilaryAs a new , very new collector I am overwhelmed by the supply of Blenko on ebay. Tell me where to start.My plan is to spend $500 each year.JCJCThank you for writing, for reading the blog and for starting a Blenko collection. Welcome.I'd spend a large part of the $500 for visiting Museums - start in Weston with the WV Museum of American Glass, while you are there buy books on Blenko and American Glass. Only after this should you start to buy glass.If you must immediately purchase an item of glass. Order the 6819 ( a reproduction in the 2011 line) http://www.blenkoglass.com/ for available colors. hjh
