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.

http://www.birthday.wv.gov/events West Virginia Birthday Events


This year on June 20th West Virginia will be 150 years old!   As Blenko Collectors we  often spend June 20th purchasing a Blenko Birthday Vase.

This year many cities in West Virginia are hosting events.  Four days of events to celebrate the 150th birthday.

The State of West Virginia has established a website with information pertaining to Birthday Celebration!

Great News this celebration!
Blenko's event will be but a small part, do we know when they plan to sell the vase?
Is there a Blenko schedule?
I'll make hotel reservations for the Wheeling event this weekend. Should we know about Blenko in time, I will also attend Blenko's event.

I prefer to save my $$ and buy immediately after from a local.
Cost me $50 to $100 above the initial cost of vase but
I was spending $600 on the 3 day trip. Airfare, food, car rental, and after I was exhausted.
Now I'll ask glassdoc to find someone to buy for me. If she can't then I advertise.

Katie has a new baby, so she maynot be spending 24 hours a day on Blenko.
You all need to get a life, not everyone and everything revolves around your addict to this glass.
