Elizabeth,
People who comment and offer photos are on line friends.
I do not have contact info or phone numbers nor can I identify anyone from a line up.
I have not been active in the Collectors Group for more than 3 years.
This blog is not designed to be a source of connection for readers. Should you desire to contact Roxie or Annyu perhaps a post asking them to contact you.
If you buy or sell glass to a person from this blog I urge you to use methods to protect yourself
as you would with Craig's List or Ebay.
Good Luck!

I apologize Suzanne said she had offered the glass to another before they were able to get an international confirmation / authorization from your Visa.

Why are you selling? This is Roxie. You bought 2000 from about 3 years ago.
I hope your health is OK.

his name was Lewis "Red" Powers and he worked there over 50 years,
when don took over he was really beating the bushes to sell glass and we had all kinds of orders. then he made the ultimate mistake he disagreed with katie and made her mad, a few weeks later he got fired. rumor is he is some kind of manager for walmart now. what a waste

Will you start a collectors of Blenko group?
Perhaps a post and then we can meet online until a in person arrangement is made?
