The shelves r sturdy wood planks with glass on top & anchored securely, not going anywhere! It's my cats I gotta worry about! Thanks 4 your concern

I used heavy duty brackets and lag bolts because I was paranoid of a crash. L.

Looks great to me. I would be paranoid of a crash with a full wall like that too. I have 10lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag at all times. I have glass on every window sill, shelve, table, anywhere you can place a bottle. My storage is full, my closets and it is now stacked up in the sunroof. I still have buckets and boxes of unclean stuff I still need to get to. It's a hobby not a hoard so I don't feel guilty. I think?

I guess I to am loaded with Stuff but just recently said enough is enough. I started just getting smaller stuff until I start displaying and somewhat get organized. I hope. Lol

That's the key. Organize. I grabbed a bunch of plastic milk crate so I can store them with out worrying about wet boxes. I had a problem and the boxes were falling apart as I was picking them up. I plan on letting go of ones not from my area. Bunch of acl's, I don't collect anymore.

Grenshaw is famous for their green soda bottles. (I believe I have a Min-R-Ize with their base mark-- v. similar to yours.) If memory serves, Grenshaw underwent a couple of mergers/short term glass house acquisitions in the late 30s--kind of hard to come up with exact dates in some cases. A 7-Up person needed. ...Nice bottle cave you have there. Next time try to include a pic of one feline in the room. Maybe watching the tv while eyeing a corner bottle to play with, or just sleeping in front of them! ;)

Organization is great--that's when winter months come in handy. :)

I have several of these bottles. The odd thing is the date on the bottom. It shows 1927! Doesn't seem right but I can find out!
27 is not the date code, the date is determined by the letter on the lip of the bottle on the back.
Each letter was applied only for a single year beginning with “G” for Glenshaw in 1935, “H” in 1936,
“I” in 1937, etc....

I dug this 7up bottle few years ago & I have not found another one like it! Features 7 bubble label & neck label with 8 bubbles over swim lady with the line & diamond on the back label. Embossed on lower neck ring is 38 & what could be an "I". That doesn't make any sense cuz that back label wasn't used till 1940 & the Grenshaw Bottling company used a letter dating code & J would stand 4 1938 not I. I is for 1937! Any thoughts? View attachment 231295View attachment 231294View attachment 231292View attachment 231293Do have a one of a kind? Is it valuable? I really love this bottle! View attachment 231296
My guess is the I is really a J
