John Feldmann Amityville next Week!
I am really excited to again get the opportunity to visit with John and Sheila Feldmann of Amityville, New York next Thursday and Friday. I will be visiting to assess, photograph and to get a more comprehensive understanding of this great collection. It was during breakfast with the Feldmann’s, before the Keene, New Hampshire Bottle Show last October, that John mentioned that he had stopped adding to his collection and that in the coming years, he was thinking of moving the collection along, possibly to an auction house. I have posted a few pictures so you can see why I am soooo excited.
I will also be interviewing John and Sheila for an upcoming article for ANTIQUE BOTTLE & GLASS COLLECTOR.

Mike Hoffman, Ken Salazar, and I had a wonderful visit with John and Sheila after the 2008 York, PA, Expo. Their collection is FANTASTIC, that’s for sure. Also present were Warren Friedrich, Mike Henness, Ken Edward and Jerry Forbes.
Mike….I last visited the Feldmann’s in 2003 when I just started collecting. When Bitters Bottles started consuming me I found Mike Hennesse’s site and flipped out. When I saw the Feldmann’s collection I was locked in and my path was set. If you guys every come to Bottle Siberia (Houston) you are welcome any time to see my collection.
