2010 FOHBC National Bottle Show EVENTS SCHEDULE Wilmington Ohio

Here is the schedule for the upcoming FOHBC National Bottle Show (Aug. 6-8, Wilmington Ohio).

The buffet banquet is on Friday evening, following the afternoon meetings. Sheldon Baugh, noted historian, will be speaking on the Ohio Shaker Communities, and their BOTTLES. There will be door prizes, and a cash bar. And lots of visiting and FUN!

There are going to be several entertaining and educational seminars on Saturday morning, so please plan on attending the show from 8am Saturday on -- the day will run on into the night, with the auction wrapping up around 9pm. Morning seminars, afternoon set-up and early bird shopping, then the auction reception (cash bar) and the auction - it will be another long FUN day!

And then we'll get up early again on Sunday, and sell or shop, till we drop! So it's 3 busy days -- but Wow! there will be some super rare bottles for sale, amazing collections on display, as well as some really knowledgable hobbyists and historians sharing thier passion for the hobby, and, I'll say it again -- lots of FUN!

See you there!
