Meyer Table at the 2011 Houston Bottle Show

I took of few pictures of my two (2) tables at the 2011 Houston Bottle Show. The proximity of the show allowed me to take some of my light tables and to display a few bottles. I had no illusions that I would sell much (I didn’t) as the Texas crowd seems mostly into Texas Bottles, ACL Sodas, Insulators, Breweriana and Hutches etc.
