Blenko Glass Blog. Blenko Glass . The West Virginia B Day Vase Sale

The Line Begins very early... ..... If you aren't In Milton....Should you be?
Well....  Rumor has it....that  you are most often safe...as long as you
arrive BEFORE
and sometime you are SAFE even if you arrive
at 6 am on SATURDAY
but many people have been disappointed
and left without a Blenko Birthday Vase
when they arrived late.
IF you arrive late and don't get a vase

you can purchase a vase on EBAY for an upcharge of $100
most often the day after....fyi.

BUT the fun is standing in line....getting to know other BLENKO COLLECTORS listening to the stories of   the old timers....the folks who collected when the sale was in the downtown area - first at
THE DIAMOND....then At Stones'
Then at The Cultural Center
well you get....This Blenko Birthday Vase is nearly an OLD LADY -  she was born in 1980!   The first Vases were crystal - and made by Sheperd only later did the designers add color.
