Stoddards_NoordsyIs there anyone on this page who likes Stoddards? (insert internet winky here) – Jeff Noordsy


What was Jeff Noordsy’s question this morning?? – Cindy Suter


Still amped about the new demi and hope it fits in with the family. – Woody Douglas


It’s a rainy day so thought I’d snap a picture of some rare Bixbys that I’ve kept from the collection I used to have. A couple rare colors, a rare mold from 1883 with the patent date on the side in crude block letters, an 1880s tin that copies their shoe polish bottle, and a crude smooth base umbrella ink from the late 1860s, the oldest Bixby bottle I’ve ever seen. – Bill Steele


A couple of nice Tweddle’s sodas. The green one has a wild funky bubble that’s pretty cool – Tim Henson


Here is a picture of some of my colored druggists I took last fall. – James Viguerie

4DrugStoreUp for your consideration we have four fresh dug mold blown privy finds.These Antique Pharmacy Bottles from Reading, Pa. are in good condition but have some lite stain. – ebay


Three of my favorite labeled sodas. I think the Chero Cola label from Columbus, Ga. is the most interesting of all. Though a common old soda, it’s not often seen with this label, which dates to around 1916. Chero Cola survives to this day, but is today known as RC Cola. – Dale Nichols


My little collection of Blown Three Mold.  Woody Douglas


Spring has sprung just green barrels popping up so far, today made a trip this morning to get the Greeley’s Bourbon Bitters in mint condition color is hard to call, I guess when it rain it pours. Also picked a new camera to make Gerard Dauphinais happy, hope the pic is better than yesterday.  Lou Holis
