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.

Question for ya Hilary.   I'd like to see photos of large Blenko Glass candle holders,  also can these be purchased at the VC now?
Photos - please so when I find the candle holders I know they are Blenko.
Thank you

warehouse sale for less than $20
Many vintage catalog items are daily at the Visitor Center.
Go to Milton before you
shop ebay.

Ya never know what one will find in the VC gift shop.
Marlyn has been a source of info via phone for me. Ask for her and then ask what new 'old stuff' is available in VC.
Don't let distance keep you from finding gems.
Also, don't purchase online from a seller you don't know.
Not everything labeled Blenko or with Blenko sticker is Blenko.
Do not be fooled.
