Hey Folks. I used to tumble bottles and jars and have always wanted to try reconditioning a marble. I finally was able to try this. These are my first three reconditioned german handmade glass marbles. I know there is a lot to learn but it was fun doing this. I'm hooked. I would only...
Hi Folks. I recently bought this from a buddy of mine. I'm sure you have all seen the 7 Sutherland sisters hair grower bottle before, I don't think they are hard to find. What I bought from my buddy that I think is a little more scarce is this pic showing the 7 sisters showing off their...

Hello bottle friends. About a month ago when I was looking around for items to take to the Kalamazoo bottle show I found a box of dug stuff I had forgot about. This jar was in the box. My buddy Bill (justanoldigger) and his wife stayed with us for the weekend so I asked him to clean this...
Hello Glass buddies
I was fortunate to acquire this Root jar at the Kalamazoo show yesterday. The dealer held it back for me but had 20 other guys wanting to buy it.
He's a good friend to keep it back for me.
This jars yellow color is great but the really unbelievable and greatest...

Hello Folks. A friend of mine has been trying to find out some value on this bottle he has. I looked it up in the ACL Soda bottle book third edition and it's listed as a decent bottle. For Wenatchee WA 98-2001 $44. For Caldwell KS no price just listed as VR. Book lists them both at 10...
I've been seeing folks post their Coca Cola bottles so I finally dug a few of mine out.

My Grandson Joey collects marbles with me. I gave him some marbles for Christmas and he gave me this marble.
It was a real surprise and I think pretty darn cool. Hope you all had a great Christmas and I wish you all a very healthy & happy 2013. Best regards. Paul :)
My wife and I were antiqueing last Friday and she found this cabinet and said since I have a birthday coming up next month that I should have it for my marbles.
The drawers are perfect for marbles. It was originally a lawyers paper cabinet and some of the papers were from the...
Hi Folks. I took my 10 year old Grandson to the Canton Ohio marble show this past weekend. He and I both picked up some nice marbles. It gave me an incentive to get them displayed with the rest of my collection. Hope you like them.
Hi Folks. I went to a guys house the other day to buy some marbles and his dad has a large collection of stoneware. These were the only two wax sealers he had. I bought them both. Both are the same but one has a little crisper stenciling than the other. Just sharing with you. Hope you...
Hi Folks. I bought a small collection of sulphide marbles a couple days ago. I bought them from a guy who is in college and decided to part with his collection. He had collected them over 15 years so I guess he bought one a year? There are 15 total. I don't really know much about...
I posted a pic of my newest Piso bottle yesterday and my buddy Justanolddigger said I'm on a roll for finds and asked me to share another new find of mine with all you nice folks on this forum so here it is.
Most of you will probably like this bottle more than my newest Piso...
I know not too many folks get excited over common Piso bottles but I kind of like them.
I just wanted to share a new Piso bottle for my collection. I don't get too many Piso's for my collection that I don't have anymore so this was a super surprise.
I went to a...
Hello All. This is my newest acquisition. I had another one of these years ago and traded it and wished I didn't. Now I have another one. Redbook 235. Good luck to all buying or digging items for your collections. Best regards. Paul
My Grandson and I dug a ladies yard awhile back here in Niles Michigan and she asked us if we would be interested in giving a presentation at the local historical society meeting and of course we agreed.
Last night was the night for the meeting and it went pretty well.
