I didn't realise you were nearby , not sure what advice I could offer , the antique world is pretty much in a wait and see approach with covid causing so many issues , I'm not even sure who still plans to open this year and who is closed

you could try having a yard sale by May or June as a way to thin out the common stuff which wouldn't be worth shipping or someone driving a long way for

I'm not entirely sure whats allowed at the moment as rules vary so much for each health unit , we just ended a stay at home order .

last year we weren't even allowed to have yard sales until July and antique finds were few

Like the green Canada Dry, one of the first bottles I remember as a kid (my Dad found it in the woods). Still have it.

I have a studio in a separate building at home, I will be having individual buyers make appointments, so they can look through the bottles on their own

Have sold a bunch with kiji ads as well and will continue to post, moving so I need to get rid of the bottles, can’t take them to new location.

I looked thru some of your ads , never seen the 1941 pepsi go for big money without the paper label still attached , not really much of a market for the embossed bottle without one , most common pepsi bottles from 50's - 70's wouldn't ever go for big money

I've found several of those Canada dry bottles before swimming , there isn't much of a market for them either , they would of also had a paper label originally

did sell a large jug years ago , mine was for javex , perhaps there is people who'd buy them to repurpose them
