Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

If that hutch bottle is still there, swoop it up, I'll take it! Got the 80% rule in effect...

Man, some of those are heartbreakers, especially the Uniontown ones. Dang..

Ever find any from Washington PA?
It should still be there. Just a matter of me remembering where exactly.
I don't think I have ever seen any from Washington, PA. Besides online.

I saw some ACL Cameron's in a coffee shop / antique store. Maybe they were from Washington. Now I wonder if they still have them.

I've found several Squirt bottles from Pittsburgh, a few Cameron bottles from Washington, and some broken locals. Who knows where those bottles went.

I'd like to find an amber Gay-ola from Fredericktown, or a Thorton Bros hutch from Brownsville. That would be killer.

There's actually a Thorton bottle on Ebay right now. It's been on there forever because it does have a crack.

I considered it, but I won't buy vertically cracked bottles.

At least if the top is gone, one can make either a drinking glass, or a pencil holder out of them. I can't do anything with a vertical cracked bottle.
That is very creative that you are able to salvage bottles like that and make them usable. I'll let you know if I find anymore suitable ones.
