Nipissing Drug Store - North Bay Ontario druggist bottle
it was the annual Toronto bottle show this weekend and there was actually a fair number of druggist bottles there and not just ones from Toronto . seems to be the only place I see these types of bottles for sale .
came across one from North Bay Ontario that was reasonably priced due to it having a minor crack on the back corner but seems to be in otherwise good condition , have lots of soda bottles from north bay but never really came across any druggists even though there appears to be a few of them

Yeah those ACL milk bottles and ginger beers in Ontario are always priced incredibly high. Canadian ACL milk collectors are a serious bunch. I haven't got a single ACL milk from Ontario and only a couple from BC.
I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it to the Ottawa show or not this year, I'm in Montreal now. I'll see if I can get away this weekend. Last couple shows it hasn't been that great for bottles, I always get a few I want but it seems like the proportion of bottles to other unrelated antiques is progressively shrinking, and the shrinking number of local bottles has been getting to the point where I'm noticing less and less of a difference between the Ottawa show and the Longueuil show.
I found this little bottle yesterday while I was walking around a construction site along Lake Superior. Don't know anything about it. It looks like some type of asian writing on it but not positive....
