What to Purchase for Xmas Gifts?

I know its much too soon for the purist - to think about Holiday Gift giving.

At my home, we shop for Christmas all year long, we put the gifts in the hall closet and wait until 12/14 to start wrapping.

Blenko Glass http://www.blenkoglass.com/ has 7 reproduction ( older items / molds being made in 2011) decanters.

You'll want at least one of each. We'll post photos - but I suggest you visit the Blenko Gift Shop. The gift shop is a unique store - often times you'll find sample colors and designs, end of day items all at reduced price.

For the remainder of this week we'll publish photos of Blenko Glass decanters currently available online.

We own the older version - and believe me there is very little if any difference other than color selection.

You are an optimistic fool
the new reproductions
are a far cry from the original.
Molds get old
and workers lack quality.
Be honest.

I also shop all year long
for Christmas.
My reason is financial.
I spend $100 each month on gifts
so I do not have debt for the holiday gifts.
