FOHBC 2013 National Antique Bottle Show Banquet
I wanted to get a few pictures of the 2013 FOHBC Manchester Antique Bottle Show Banquet out as fast as I could. Look for an upcoming article in Bottles and Extras. Great turn-out, cocktail party, meeting old and new friends, good food, awards, speaker and off to the New England Bottle Battle.
