North Jersey Antique Bottle Collectors Association to hold 50th Anniversary Bottle Show
The hobby of bottle collecting is one that is most unique across the world. Glass bottles have been recorded as far back as some Egyptian civilizations and gained popularity in Europe for hundreds of years. For most collectors in the US, it is the glass that was produced and used locally that gets the most attention. In Bergen and Passaic counties alone, hundreds of brewers, pharmacists, dairymen, and other proprietors used personalized, glass bottles that have today, become desirable among collectors and history buffs alike.
To learn more about these local artifacts of history, consider attending the Antique Bottle Show and Sale held by the North Jersey Antique Bottle Collectors Association on Sunday, November 10th, 2019. Held at the Pompton Lakes Elk’s Lodge located at 1 Perrin Ave, Pompton Lakes, NJ, the association is celebrating their 50th show with general free admission. The public can enter for free from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, but if you are a serious collector looking for that special bottle, you may enter early at 8:00 AM for $5.00.
