2009 Findlay Bottle Show Report / Photo Album - Are You in the Pix?





Well -- the show was last weekend -- and it was wonderful! Great energy and enthusiasm -- everyone had so much fun! Happy smiling faces were the order of the day - they were every where!

The weather was very nice -- lots of eager shoppers lined up early, and we kept a strong steady crowd in the building all day! Most dealers report strong sales, many said best in recent years. And the shoppers were happy too. There were some really nice items sold. Hope you were there to get your share! If not, better plan for next year's show.

Show Chairman Fred Curtis (below) did another great job of pulling it all together -- with the help of all the other club members -- what a team!



Here's a slide show of some pix -- anyone who has pix to share, please email jpegs to me, or links to your online storage site -- and I'll add them to this post -- thanks!

If you'd like to view the pix one at a time in a larger format, here's the link to the 2009 photo album -- click through to see them, and look for yourself in the crowd.




Some comments:

Jerry McCann says, "I love your show in Findlay...I had the best time...the people, the food, the wide range of interesting items for sale...damn! What fun."

Jeff Klingler says, "It's all about the people -- and, oh yeah, the fruit jars!"

Marianne Dow says, "Shows are back! Sales were good, and I added several Lima items to my collection. But more than that, I had a chance to get to know some fellow collectors a lot better, and am really looking forward to some upcoming show'n'tell sessions!"

Send me your quotes/comments, and I'll add 'em here! (finbotclub@gmail.com)

The Ball Jar Collectors site has a pic of the show, too.
