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.

Anticipation! Blenko Glass Warehouse Sale March 16th

Each month at my parents home - a box of fruit from Harry & David's arrives - - - - on about the 5th of every month,  I anticipate the delicious fruit.

This weekend is the beginning of the Annual Blenko Glass Warehouse Sale  - Milton, WVa.
If you are a seller of glass  -  this is a sale you have been waiting for with anticipation!  

What's available is a mystery - - - one of a kind items,  over runs,  2nds,  odd ball colors -  the prices are way below wholesale.  The warehouse is filled with glass.  

It's a great week to purchase Blenko!     Several of my friends buy glass during the sale   then use it for Xmas,  birthdays,  and other events.    It's nice to have a gift drawer -  so if and when you need something special  it's available and you didn't over spend.

Visit Blenko -  after March 16th  - visit the warehouse sale!    The gift shop will also be open during this time.

Check out Blenko Glass ( website)  for additional info and times.

Happy Shopping!

WHY NOT HAVE USER FRIENDLY HOURS
FOR THE OFFICE AND GIFT SHOP
9 to 5? 10 to 6?
MY GUESS IS THE VC SELLS MORE GLASS THAN VENDORS.

" Special friends" are allowed to have first dibs
when will this stop?
We enjoyed the day, Mr. Blenko looked great, the store was clean - often it isn't when we visit.
Enjoyed the weekend.

Its been going on for way too long, you can't correct. Buy what you like and walk away.

Connie: you don't have a right to the glass. If friends want to shop first, don't you think Blenko has the right to do that? They own the place you dont

Somehow I don't think its the Blenko Family involved in the friends shopping prior to sale.
I took photos of the cars and trucks this year
so when I do see Mr. Blenko I will ask.

The glass is then sold to our favorite east coast dealer
who will then sell it to you!
It is life.
