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.

Blenko Warehouse Sale

Blenko Glass each year in March holds a 4-5 day warehouse sale.

If you haven't been....may I suggest you mark this event in your calendar and attempt to attend.

Each year they sell Artist Proofs,  odd ball glass,  2nds and many items that are just discontinued.

While I have not been in several years,  each year many readers write to speak of the beautiful and VERY NICELY PRICED items they purchased.

My parents used to go yearly and buy gifts for their entire office staffs.   During this event, one can obtain Blenko Glass water bottles for as low as $16.... consider buying in bulk for your gift closet.

Each year I receive a letter from the Conner family -- they bring their van and fill it with items to
resell on EBay and Etsy.  
For the exact dates and times please phone 304 743 9081 - check www.blenkoglass.com Blenko Glass website, or the Blenko Collectors on face book.
