What to Give the Sportman in Your Life? Blenko Fish

Have you noticed that as you age - 
Gift giving is often more difficult,  as everyone is older and has all the "stuff" they need.
You may have this problem in your own family.  Or with your significant other. 

Xmas is coming.   I'm going to suggest you consider the FISH at Blenko as an appropriate
gift for all the sportsmen in your life.
In West Virginia as well as most surrounding state - fishing is an important pass time.

Blenko Glass has always created FISH,  since the 60's.   Last year Arlon Bayliss used FISH in his WVA Birthday Vases.   This year Blenko has created unique one of a kind - you have the ability to choose the colors in your fish....it's a rare opportunity to have an item created especially for the special person in your life.
I'm posting this NOW - as it takes 4-6 weeks to receive your FISH.
You'll want to go to the Blenko Glass website and place an order for fish.
2916 Fish w/Assorted Frit (Pulled Feather)
An item once only offered in our Visitor Center Gift Shop, now available online! A 10’’ long, 6’’ tall Crystal form enhanced by various colors of frit to create a beautiful, one of a kind fish form. This item is made using the pulled feather technique where the frit coloration is pulled through the fish's body.
At this time Fish are offered as an assorted item. Colors are chosen by the makers and vary when ordering online. Approx $178.
