I had to fight for what I got- bottle people heard about this auction/estate sale- someone was a collector. I have only gone thru about 1/2, even to glance thru. Check it:

And in a box of whiskeys was a really beautiful book.

Then the guy from the auction who is president of the local bottle club came out to my car and put this box of stuff in my car and said “there might be something in this?” Check it, and there’s 2 and 3 of the really good ones dating back to 1890s .

And on and on- the box is big and that only scratches the surface. I’m in shock here- after feeling like $500ish was too much for it all! I think I might get it back, though. Can’t wait to see the remaining boxes filled with really old lady leg whiskeys, and a LOT of them?!

What treasures!!!!! Great rare finds!!! I too have found treasures in auction "lot boxes" that nobody realizes and have purchased them extremely cheap!!! Most of the times bidders didn't know what was in these boxes! Congrats to you, keep on treasure hunting!!! historic-antiques

It just keeps happening. I really am not sure of what I’m looking at with the stuff that’s been worth a chunk but usually a gut vibe, and some bottles that I do know. You are right though- they just don’t know. But isn’t it fun? I think it’s a blast! Seems like every week, I’m scoring on some crazy thing like this…. I’m still working on the germ proof Red Cross stick phone mouthpiece. I told the guy who auctioned that, about it- we all thought it was part of a salt shaker.

What an amazing haul. My favorites are the bottles first then the newspapers and magazines. I would be reading them all night and day.

Truly amazing find. Those newspapers.... just, wow!

It’s like a peak in time before my time…. Well some of it. And the advertising of bottles we know, well…. Really fun! But omg, it was such a different time-

That’s about what I’m doing…. (Real carefully) I like the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire edition? All of them are a slap in the head from history that just was not so vivid and real, back in school? I like the ads- a lot of them are a snapshot in time of our bottles. The life mags are not worth much and I would just keep those, not worth parting with.
