Got milk bottles?
Old milk bottles are finding new life again in the hands of collectors. All across the country, people with fond memories of the milkman delivering, are scouring basements, attics and antique shops looking for discarded bottles. Here’s an AP story out of Decatur, Ill. about some hard core bottle collectors.
The dairy enthusiast group gathers every three months to swap stories about their collections of milk bottles and talk about the history of long-forgotten dairies in the city and county. The unique thing about Decatur is that milk bottles continue to be found in people’s basements. One collector recently paid $300 for a rare milk bottle found in a man’s garage.
