Blenko Water Bottles- An Inexpensive way to start a collection
Tim and Karin Alonzo of TEXAS had the largest know collection of water bottles with handles from Blenko. We hope to have photos of their collection on the blog very soon! Tim told me in 2008, WV is a great place to search for unique water bottles and other vintage Blenko. A waterbottle with handle was recently 5/1/2017 seen at a store front in South Charleston, W.Va.
This photo is of a Black Water Bottle made in 2005 - however , its valuable as Ebony/black is a discontinued Blenko color and a limited number of water bottles were made in this color! Collecting Blenko can be fun and educational. One doesn't have to have a lot of money or time. Blenko makes the most wonderful gifts. When you give Blenko you are giving an item that can be used, is beautiful and will increase in value with time!
