Effingham NH. Where else?
Nice!

I began this way, hauling home every bottle I found, worth $100 or worth nothing..and I found myself so squeezed for space (and learning more and more) that I made the gut-wrenching decision to cull out the "lesser" bottles...then I began culling out the "a bit better but not awesome" stuff...and now I have settled on collecting a single catagory and selling / trading the rest to fund that endeavor.

I expect you'll end up doing this too, it's only natural. What would your catagory be if you should start collecting just one type or kind?
I'll look out for them for you.
