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.

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” ~~ Aristotle* borrowed this comment from a Blenko Collector. Don't ya think it fits Blenko! Where excellence is a way of life.

I'll send you a page of quotes.

Sad but in US we are into mass more than quality or quantity vs quality.
Collectors are hoarders who own thousands pieces w/o value.
True collectors own very few
but quality is key.

Perhaps follow the suggestion by
management to buy from Walmart or TJ Maxx - lmao

Where is the warehouse?
Can anyone come or is it open only to collectors?
If the sale is limited to collectors, how does one become an official member of collectors?

In the ole days
Blenko didn't spend money on ads
or advertisement
other than occassional ladies magazine.
Now its newspapers and a lot
and TV. Paid for with the current budget. Excellent management allows for Blenko now to pay for things they once had to rely on
people doing interviews and announcements.
Anyway having said this. If you live in the tri state there will be newspaper and TV ads.
If you do not then after she reads it in the newspaper glassdoc will tell you.
Communication with collectors is something Blenko doesn't often find time for.
Subscripe to Herald may be an answer.

My long disertation was meant to answer the question when is the warehouse sale.
Where is the warehouse sale? In Milton at the factory.
You do not need to read this blog or collect all shopacholics and Blenko addicts are welcome.
If you buy to resell this is a great opportunity.

Blenko must be making a great deal of money or they could not afford these things.
Profit equals good management.
This is a truth that can not be denied.
KGT is solely responsible for this growth and success.

If they are paying when invoice is received then perhaps your statement is true.
If not. Then the debt builds.
Regardless the history after closure or success will credit
Trippe.
Sad Mr. Walter Blenko and cousin invested such a large amount of money and did no long range business plan to include paying creditors or hiring a fulltime business manager to assit the very competent but busy Vice President of .
