Sunshine Coast Aussie Bottle National 2013-893

Dear Ferdinand,

Hope all is well state side. The Aussie Bottle National has come and gone this past weekend. Just over 3,500 folks came for a look which is a new record for the Sunshine Coast Club and unprecedented in this country at any previous National Bottle Show. Another first is for members of Federal Parliament, State Council and a Charity wishing to speak formally opening a Bottle and Collectables Show. I consider myself pretty well travelled to most world related events, but have never seen a line to get in like Saturdays…

The Sunshine Coast Club has a humble presence on Facebook where this show and previous have been recorded digitally to share. Visit and Like Page

Best Regards,
Greg Dean

    WOW! Bottle collecting alive & well Down Under. As a matter of fact, I keep getting vibes, indications that interest in collecting bottles in on the rise here. Women’s mags show them, Jeanine can’t keep them in her booth, “Pottery Barn” repos selling, etc.
