Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Whats Available in the Blenko Gift Shop?

This photo was provided by a Blenko Collector from Nevada, taken on 2/13 during a VC shopping trip. These items may NOT be available when you visit. We are showing this photo so you'll know - if you haven't been to the VC , the glass is colorful, lots of variety, and prices are
very good. Note the top hat! I was looking for an ebony top hat for 7 or more years. Last week blog friend Ernie sent a link and I was able to purchase an ebony Top Hat for my collection.
If you need a certain piece of glass - ask your friends, neighbors and fellow blog readers.
Networking is part of belonging to a Collector Group. Thank you Ernie.

If you can weekly do a photo of the VC shop

I phoned but the top hat was not available.
neither was a cobalt lamp.
Thanx you for photo.

I again with Penny
if you do photos of what's in the VC weekly we can then phone the VC to order.
Perhaps during the warehouse sale - if they have a warehouse sale, you could do daily photos?

Please Blenko send photos weekly of the available stock in VC.
It will allow those of us w/o access to the shop to purchase.
