One way to alleviate some of the stress is to do your shopping in one place. Buying LOCAL is always my first choice. Handcrafted is also on my short list.
At Blenko Glass www.blenkoglass.com Blenko Glass Company you will find many one of a kind items, an online store, a brick and motor store in Milton with a clearance table ( for those of us who always want a mark down).
Blenko is LOCAL, Family owned, small manufactory that continues to make quality, high quality glass....one piece at a time.
Blenko Glass could be your one stop for all Xmas Gifts.
