GREENSBORO, N.C., October 29, 2018 –– For more than 125 years, iconic American glassmaker Blenko Glass' craftsmen have honored the tradition of creating unique and inspiring hand-blown glass. As part of Blenko's milestone anniversary celebration, Replacements is excited to welcome Blenko Glass Company President Walter Blenko, Jr. for an exclusive signing event Saturday, November 10, 2018.
