I went back to the antique shop with the buck a bottle minus 30%? Let me show you what I dragged home, In all it’s dirt and glory…. Almost like my digging days! That holfsteaders is unopened

Anyone with an idea what the Turkish one is- or anything about any of them? But first, check out this shot of it?! I need a poster or a calendar with this….

The second from the left is not the mess it looks like here- actually is really clear and really really red/amber,

Witter water? Medicinal Sacramento water- I’ve tasted my sisters Sacramento water- let me just say….. Yuck! That’s not all that I brought home today, but most of it! I might make my way there tomorrow- on the way to the lake.

I wish they had a category for bottle caps, cans and signs on this site.

I’m sorry! Have not yet got the navigation figured out on this site. I was looking at someone’s post, in an appropriate forum, go to the top to start a post, and it jumped from new finds to here?! Weird….(Special powers, I guess!)

Can't beat the price for only $1.00. Nice Score. LEON.

Right? And they are so dirty, you almost get the same experience, but out of the smoke and under air conditioning. Then the cleaning…. Just like back in the day-almost. He has so many samples- and every kind of bottle- I should go there when he “works the counter” (I hear that’s so the other lady can babysit him, cuz he’s pretty far gone). Like I wouldn’t take advantage, but maybe we could strike a deal? He has bottles- I like bottles- it could work?! It’s worth asking about- these are not even his good bottles. Well…. Time to bake some cookies!

What kind of deal could you possibly strike that’s better than $1 per bottle.

I would just buy every one in there most likely and then ask of he has more.

Frankly in my opinion - $1 a bottle os already a steal and you know it - so striking a deal for anything less with a guy who mentally isn’t there - is a scumbag move.

sorry - I take issue with it because I deal with family members with dementia

Me too…. I’m all too used to the phone calls every 1-2 minutes for the same bs- over and over- like ridiculous stuff that she dreams up all day and night to make out like a national screaming emergency. 18 calls a day over dog toothpaste! I am too familiar. Like 10 second Tom in the movie 50 first dates

I will go get what I can out of his bottles at his price…. But…. I need to be on his sweet side, because I would love to know what he has at home! He left notes in a lot of them- like “i dug this bottle up in 1964 on the weekend when they were building the on ramps on the freeway being built. i5 and interstate 80 in Oakland, with a screwdriver.” Well, go, Doug! We are kindred spirits- rebels for life! Doug found a lot of nice western whiskeys from what I see. So yes on the buck bottles, but I have come to a point in my bottle collection that I am weeding thru, dialing it in, and see nothing wrong with dropping a couple hundred a few times a week on THOSE bottles that I’ve had my eye on for years. Betcha Doug has some stashed back at his house?
