Columbia Bottle Show

This past weekend I attended the Columbia Antique Bottle Show. (Go here to see Pix  http://www.antique-bottles.net/forum/Columbia-2010%2C-I-Was-There/m-290552/tm.htm )

   This is the best show in the Southeast. I set up a table this year to sell my book and some bottles.  Of course, I ended up buying some bottles to bring home. It is a Friday and Saturday show. It is so surprising how many attend on Friday. It opened at noon and I did most of my sales in the first three hours. That is when the most serious bottle collectors are out. 

   Dennis Smith-the expert on Celery Cola was there. He has written several books on various soda brands. I was able to talk to him briefly. He is a walking encyclopedia of soft drink knowledge!

   I saw many friends that I have gotten to know at bottle shows over the years.  Also, found a few bottles I had never seen before to add to my collection. It was a great weekend.

Look for a bottle show close to you and attend one.
