Yes Virginia  -  good Vintage Blenko Glass exist, and can often be found on Ebay and in 'junk' and 'flea markets'   the key is to have your catalogs, books etc so you can identify the glass.  The following is from our Texas friend Bruce S. 
 Warning:  Bruce has a glass karma that can not be duplicated.

Hi Hillary,
Just wanted to send along this photo of the two pieces of Blue Top Mountain Glass that I have in the collection now. PIcked up the large cylinder vase just a couple weeks ago as a mis-list on Ebay for twenty-five. Absolutely love the color and crackle on the piece. These are Don Shepherd designs and are Blenko #7735 decanter (9") and Blenko #7738 (16").
Hope you enjoy,
