Heart of Glass - 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.

Blenko Glass. Collecting or Hoarding?

He who knows
    that enough is enough
       will always have enough.  Lao Tzu

A New Yorker once said to me 80% of all collectors were not collectors but hoarders.

If you own Blenko glass you are not longer enjoying, or have it boxed away.
Why not consider allow new collectors to purchase?

Weekly we hear from new collectors who complain they can't find unique Blenko items.

Last year my parents parted with about 50 items of Blenko.  They donated to the Union Mission - where it was sold to
either collectors or folks who will later sell to collectors.

If its your glass its 'stuff' and hoarding. If its my glass
its a collection, a valuable collection.
