Would they consider donating these vases? The So Charleston Museum would welcome the vases.
I think also the WV Division of Culture Museum might enjoy these.
Sad to break up a collection, if donation is possible.

I can answer this question, on six occasions Hilary has helped me find blenko.
I paid nothing to her, and the seller paid her nothing.
I think she trys to help to increase interest.
She also is not paid for the blenko project or the blog.
The blenko project I would think is costing her some $$.
I find both invaluable.

I bid on three of these.
How do I know if I won, or I didn't win?
Also can I increase my offer?

Clarification: Blenkoproject is a non-profit organization.

Neither hillary nor I make any money off of blenkoproject. In fact, both of us have spent our own money for it.
