Blenko Glass Blog. Children Love Blenko!

Blenko Glass located in Milton, WVa.

When I was a little kid,  I went to Blenko  every week, I bought all my gifts for Teachers and friends at Blenko.  
There was always glass available for less than $5.00.
Katie Trippe has continued this tradition.  At Blenko you'll find paper weights, animals made of glass and other objects under $10  ( even with inflation this is a bargain).   These items allow children to purchase Blenko.   It also makes buying small glass items for the grandkid's affordable.
Blenko Glass has always been customer friendly.
Blenko is made in West Virginia.  Each item is handcrafted.

Some of my fondest memories are visiting the gift shop and ducks in the glass garden. I begged my mother to take me!

Thank you for reminding me of my own childhood in the 50s my Mom took me weekly to feed the ducks and to buy glasses and pitchers for gifts.
