With football season starting and everything else that comes with Fall, I hadn’t had much time to do any Coca-Cola related things.
I did go to a Church yardsale last weekend. Bought 14 Coca-Cola bottles for $10, got the bottles home and promptly threw the bottle away, but kept the screw on caps. Crazy! But the bottles had heavy casewear. The caps were from the 1980′s, from the Marietta, Georgia plant and looked brand new.
Finding good screw on caps is not easy. Although I did find 40 on our trip to the National Convention, bought 50 on ebay and now with the ones I got at the yardsale, I should be set for caps…for a little while. Most bottle collectors want the bottle and caps to be in pristine condition. I’ve upgraded my caps with the finds from this year and still have some left for future bottles.
In fact, I found a Caffeine Free Coca-Cola cap for a 32 ounce bottle, now all I need to do is find that bottle. It is a difficult one to get.
So, enough of my rambling…..hit those yardsales and see what you can find!
