Tomorrow the 12th of October a bottle show and sale will be held at the Ancaster Fair Grounds. It is being held in conjunction with the Ancaster Nostalgia Show. It opens at 10:00 am. There will be as many as 25 tables showing and selling bottles, stoneware, and redware. Please if you are in the area drop by and help support this endeavour.
I'm up in Montreal these days, definitely a bit far from Hamilton. Our bottle show is coming up in a couple weeks and I'll try to make it to that one. And yes please post pictures of what you've got, I'm always interested to see what's out there!
Yeah I find some Ontario stuff here, I got a fantastic Cummer & Son pictorial split a few years back. Never seen another one since. Montreal in general isn't great for finding bottles though, the antique stores don't usually carry them and the bottle sale has absurdly high prices compared to the Ottawa one. Not many digging opportunities either, all the old municipal dumps have been built over. That could change once some waterfront areas are developed though, we could see a repeat of what happened in Toronto with their waterfront.
Here is a very strange 7up logo I believe to only have been used for 2 yrs, 1977 & 1978. I cannot confirm this though as it is very hard to research this logo. I just got the 16 oz one the other day....
