Happenings……………….

Well, here we are in June already!  I haven’t had much time to attend to the blog what with graduations, weddings, yard work, etc.  So, to catch you up on a few things:

Mello Yello Zero is still being a little elusive to find in local stores.  I have to go to the next town over to find it now, but I plan to ask at the local grocery store to order it for me.  If you can’t find it in your area, ask about ordering it from your local grocery store manger. I know Publix will track down items for you.

  We had a few graduations this year and I was able to find the ‘Happy Graduation 2011’  bottles from a Coca-Cola Club Member.  Makes a great gift for the Grad.

  I am SO excited!! An actual antique bottle show and sale coming up June 11th, not too far from me!  If you live in the Atlanta area, be sure and check it out. If you don’t, check my links and see if you can find a show close to you!

Smyrna, GA 41st Annual Atlanta Bottle & Pottery Show & Sale Sat. 9am-4pm,  At the Smyrna Community Center, 200 Village Green Circle, Smyrna, GA.  $3 admission charge

      Keith,
      The rail car boxes were used for many years, wooden and later metal. The metal one like yours is probably from the 1920’s to 1930’s. Some bottlers used them for many years though.
      I saw three a few years ago and the person wanted $400 each with no takers. He put them in an auction and one sold for $200, the better looking crate. The other two were pretty beat up and sold for less later.
      Hope this helps.
      Doug
