Hillary Surely there are enough collectors to provide these photos.
Have you ask Karin or Tim?

almost all of these are already pictured on blenkoarchive.org and blenkocollectors.com but the first is better as all the photos are taken in the same light, camera and background so you can compare them. Why bother replicating what's already done?

Hilary I like the idea
of having one web page where
everything is located
and no one is selling any glass.
I'm uncomfortable when I know a site is also selling or promoting glass they own and will sale.

Is Blenko closed except for skelton crew and the office?
I've heard this three times in the last month.
Perhaps its just he norm for winter, not bad mouthing but out of concern I ask.

Et al
Blenko collector photos are less than good
Blenko Museum / archives are groupings
and focus on the sell. Besides -
Replication is the most sincere form of flattery right?
Refreshing idea.

I saw three watermelon on Ebay in the last month.
New stickers which means Blenko or someone at Blenko is again making watermelon.
