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.

Blenko Glass

Hillary, I've been trying to buy a pitcher with glasses to match. I don't see this in the Blenko on line store. Help! Carolee

Carolee,

If you live close enough to visit the factory - go in and ask for what you want, or perhaps phone. You may have to wait until your color is being made.

Blenko Glass is a small family owned factory.

The employees and the owners are consumer friendly. Blenko wants your business and they want you to be happy with the product.

If you don't see what you want

ASK.

If they can't provide - then search the after market ( Ebay etc.) shops.

When you purchase 'new' glass you are supporting the Blenko Glass Factory and the workers. You are purchasing made in USA glass.

I dunno if you read the comments but apparently Blenko thinks you are negative to Blenko and employees. ( whats happening at Blenko post).
I have read this blog since it started. Never have I heard or read one word you said that was negative.
Writing and researching topics must take some time, and I understand you are in no way given money or compensation from BLenko Glass.
If this is true and you aren't paid. I don't understand their negative comments. Of course the comment was annonymous and they said a worker.
So perhaps it wasn't a Blenko staff person.

Anyone heard from Margie?
She bought glass from me, and said she

she didn't come or call.

Last year I found for under $100 a pitcher and 4 glasses at the VC.
Look and then ask the ladies who work.
Someone went to a warehouse and found a pitcher to match the glasses.
Just a thought.
