Unique hand-blown hummingbird feeders

If you can believe it, July is when a lot of vendors approach retail stores to purchase items for the second half of the year. So in weather over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, I’ve been ordering lots of winter themed items for Wild Birds Unlimited in East Lansing, Michigan. There are also lots of new summer and fall items that will be coming in each month.

This month we have Henrietta Glass, a line of teeny tiny hand blown decorative glass hummingbird feeders made in the USA. Jill Henrietta Davis, the owner and designer of Henrietta Glass explains, “In 1988, after experimenting with many different materials and art forms, I was first exposed to the wonders of molten glass and immediately fell under its spell.”

Part of what makes hummingbirds so magical is their tiny size. Jill Henrietta Davis makes feeders that are, like a hummingbird, small jewels in the garden.

Each 7 x 4 x 2” hand blown feeder is unique and comes with a gift box that contains a nectar recipe card, a filling funnel, instructions, a cleaning brush and an S-hook for hanging.

The hummingbirds just love the bright colored hand blown glass. The red feeding flower is designed to provide a more natural feeding position for hummingbirds, is drip free, and is held in place by a clear rubber band. They will make the perfect addition to your hummingbird garden or wonderful gifts for your friends.
