Blenko - Bring the Children!

Blenko Glass  www.blenkoglass.com   if you are going to be in the Milton, WV area - why not check the calendar for Blenko Glass.   If the observation landing is open - bring the kids - let them watch handcrafted glass being made.
Tell them about the West Virginia Glass history -  glass making at one time was equal to coal production in West Virginia.
Blenko and other W.Va. Glass Companies are attempting to keep this tradition of hand crafted 'Made In West Virginia Glass tradition alive.
When I was a kiid ( some 25 + years ago)  I loved going to Blenko to shop for unique gifts .  I rarely had more than $5 per person in my budget -
Things have changed - but Blenko Glass continues to make items for $20 or less.
A very popular series is the CRITTERS - cats, frogs, puppy dogs,   these are affordable and can be a stocking stuffer or a wonderful first collection of glass.
* This cat is available in several colors.
