So i decided to go bottle hunt at a flea market today for first time ... found some decent ones i think.,,plus a couple junk made in taiwan haha.
SO far got a blue Wampole, a Palmer's lotion, with partial label (sample), and a mini (sample?) what i think is a GL&G CO.
Couple others are still a mystery.
date wise i think they are early 1900's? please comment any details.
let me know if need more info.

I like the Palmer's, shame that the label isn't all there. Probably quite rare. Wampole was based out of Philadelphia and Perth, ON. I can't remember what their product was. The figural bottles on either side are unfortunately decorative bottles from the 70s.

yes the ones on the ends were the made in Taiwan ones lol!
I was happy the Palmer's had some label. seen so many online that had no labels.
Any ideas on the larger brown one in middle, and the clear one? Clear one has a large opening.
both have the D in a diamond (Dominion Glass?).

The large brown one is just a generic medicine bottle, could have held anything medicine-related. Maybe even some sort of polish but those bottles are usually clear. The clear one was some sort of food, maybe relish or something like that.

its a good idea to start checking those places as I'd imagine a lot of those flea markets are just getting started as its almost April , some likely aren't even open yet , it appears the large one in Aberfoyle does not even open till the end of april

where I live we literally still have a foot of snow , no sign of anything starting here , likely not till May
