Milwaukee Antique Bottle & Advertising Club Rises Again!


Steve’s excitement and enthusiasm have convinced me to re-join this club after being a 30+ year dropout.

Ferdinand –

As of today the MILWAUKEE ANTIQUE BOTTLE AND ADVERTISING CLUB has a new, exciting website. Thanks to “mover and shaker” president, Steve Libby, this site puts the club into the 21st century and is a major step into breathing new life into a declining, old- school club…that is before Steve took over the helm. Steve’s excitement and enthusiasm have convinced me to re-join this club after being a 30+ year dropout.

Arguably the website’s most appealing features are member profile pages which each member creates on his or her own and can include items for sale or wants with contact information. Steve owns a Milwaukee-area computer store and like yourself, has the vision and energy to make things happen for our hobby. By copy of this email I strongly recommend that Steve makes sure the Club is a Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors (FOHBC) member for the visibility and benefits so consistent with his goals for the club.

Note further, he has his own website, Mr. Bottles, an exhaustive resource for Milwaukee area bottles.
