Los Angeles Historical Bottle Club Show Report & Newsletter

LAHBC Show sales floor – 2012

I would like to applaud Dave Maryo (FOHBC Western Director, Prez Los Angeles Historical Bottle Club) and the LAHBC for being on the forefront in the Antique Bottle and Glass world with their club newsletter The Whittlemark, the dissemination of the newsletter to the bottle collecting public and for having a great show this past weekend. Way to go Dave and the LAHBC!

 Hello Ferdinand,

The Los Angeles Historical Bottle Club members voted last night to make our newsletter public (see below). I will ask Blaine Greenman to add you to the newsletter distribution list. Our meeting was very busy and mostly focused on our bottle show tomorrow, but we did take time to make the newsletter public.

Regards, Dave (Maryo)

Hello Ferdinand,

The Los Angeles Historical Bottle Club 46th annual show was a great success (see attached pictures). The new location provided more room for sales tables and had a nice carpeted floor. We had more dealer tables than last year and all tables were filled with bottles for sale. Attendance was good, but was slightly down from last year. The new location or the closed 405 freeway may have caused a few buyers to miss the show. The displays were nice and featured many rare Los Angeles area bottles. Overall the comments from the dealers and buyers were very positive about the new location. Next year will be even better.

Regards, Dave
