Replacements Shares New Introductions from Iconic Blenko Glass at Exclusive Signing Event


GREENSBORO, N.C., October 14, 2019 ––Replacements is excited to welcome Blenko Glass Company President John Blenko for an exclusive signing event Saturday, November 2, 2019. The recently named president is the fourth generation of the Blenko family to lead the iconic American glassmaker.

Over the past century, Blenko’s West Virginia artisans evolved their work to create beautiful pieces combining art and function that are highly popular with both collectors and gift-givers. The company’s storied family history and exquisite palette of more than 1,300 colors mark some of the many reasons Blenko’s unique pieces are collected worldwide.

"The quality of our product continues to be the same, made with American sand and American natural gas," says President John Blenko. "Our workers pass the craftsmanship down to their children, and each piece is still made by hand with lots of pride. I’m truly looking forward to sharing special, one-of-a-kind pieces most people probably haven’t seen before at Replacements’ event.”

Blenko will greet customers and sign pieces purchased at Replacements from 1 – 4 p.m. in the company’s retail store. Those who can’t make the event have the option of purchasing pieces online for signing October 14 – 29. For additional information, visit the retailer’s website https://www.replacements.com/store/. Replacements is located just off I-40/I-85 (exit 132) at 1089 Knox Road, McLeansville, N.C., 27301.
