Events at Blenko Glass Company
'After Hours' Sales Event
(June 14, 2019)
Blenko is pleased to again offer our popular Friday evening "After Hours" Sale as a part of our West Virginia Birthday celebration.
During this 2-hour event customers to our Visitor Center can take advantage of amazing discounts and take 15% off of their entire purchase. In preparation for this event, we will close the Visitor Center Store at 5pm on Friday, June 14 and will re-open from 6pm - 8pm.
A special edition companion piece to the WV Birthday Piece will go on sale during this event. Designed by Emma Walters & Andrew Shaffer and produced in a bold Ruby Red, this piece known simply as "Eureka" stands approximately 11.5" in height. “Eureka” tells the story of founder John Blenko’s discovery of red glass, throwing his hands up and exclaiming “Eureka!”. The drawing of the hand is referencing the iconic Blenko hand symbol.
Each companion piece will be $79 and will be etched WV Day and Blenko 2019 on the bottom. Limited Quantities will be available for a limited time only.
(WV Companion Piece will also be available online at https://blenko.com/shop/ for a limited time starting Friday, June 14 at 6pm)
