Old bottles can help to tell the story of a community and what the people who lived in that place and time were like. What were those miners drinking? What medicines were parents giving their children and taking themselves? What preserved foods were people in the community eating?
Our discussion of old bottles will include how to tell a bottle from the 1800’s from a newer bottle. Why some old bottles turn purple and others don’t. What features might make a bottle attractive to a collector and why one old bottle might be worth $5 and another may be worth $100’s. On display will be several old bottles and attendees are invited to bring any old bottle they may have a question about.
