at Kidlington, Exeter

this SATURDAY 30th November

Increasingly becoming a major show organised through Gary Wakelin. I have to admit I havent managed it yet but from the packed photos I've seen and the enthusiastic feedback I've received from others I REALLY want to include it in the ABC list of "must attends" next year. One of your last chances for a bottle fix before Xmas..... :)


Exclusively on the new ABC one stop bottle information source and AAAuctions Ltd.

ABC is pleased to announce that AAAuctions Ltd has graciously allowed us to link in to their unique "Past Auction" search and pricing tool and database. Simply follow the link, insert a relevant keyword for the type of bottle you are interested in e.g. "Daffy", and all the Daffy's and related bottles that AAAuctions have sold in all their previous auctions will appear, with descriptions, photographs and hammer price achieved! Note the dates and you will be able to see how prices have moved over the years for those bottle types. 
An incredible and valuable FREE tool that many websites try to charge for, and one which will simply continue to build and build, supporting and encouraging bottle collecting worldwide!

About Antique Bottle Collector Magazine

ABC magazine is a quarterly full-colour magazine of 40 + pages. Read about new finds, researched histories, show reports, digging news, bottles wanted and for sale. The aim is to encourage all those who have discovered the 'buzz' of hunting and digging out Edwardian, Victorian, and sometimes earlier bottle dumps. Some of which can be valuable, all of which are fascinating, intrinsically beautiful and important local social history artifacts.

Back issues of ABC Magazine are available from £1 each+post. Go to the Resources/Books section to see some of the more recent issues available.
