I would like to know who collects bottles from West Virginia.
I collect Pre-Pro beers, non-machine sodas, Hutchinsons, and squats.
About two years ago I was introduced to botttle collecting and have since been hooked.
If there is anything you may have for sale I'm sure to be interested.
Pictures are always enjoyed.

I collect soda bottles from Princeton, WV, Bluefield, WV, and an occasional bottle from some of the surrounding West Virginia area, notably Rock, WV.

I also do research on Princeton and Bluefield's bottling companies, on my website.
