Wisconsin antique bottle and advertising club
2022 Bottle Show

2022 Bottle Show

February 6th at the Waukesha Expo Center

In spite of concerns about Covid that kept some dealers and collectors away, the 2022 Bottle Show was a raging success with well over 400 attendees and 100 sales tables. And those who were there came ready to buy, sell, and trade. Last year's show was canceled, so sellers had more to offer and buyers were eager to add to their collections. Some amazing glass changed hands, and many transactions occurred behind the scenes before items hit the tables or immediately after item landed. Many of us has not seen each other in two years so it was good to renew friendships and catch up.

The outstanding Club display featured Milwaukee wholesale liquor dealer S.C. Herbst items including bottles, jugs, shot glasses, advertising, and stoneware jugs. Henry Hecker, John Steiner and Scott Rizer contributed to the display.
