First Lockdown bottle club meets "hitting the ground running"... 


    Following some recent facebook conversations with fellow Cornwall Club members, our first club meeting has been arranged for June 1st at our usual pub venue. However as government rules stand, inside meetings are limited to six people, and enthusiasm for our meeting appears such that we are gaining a number of new members and an outdoors (under canopies) up-to-30 people option is forced on us. However everyone is looking forward to it massively! 

    And from perusing various club facebook forums and other posts we've noted that several of you have already had limited club meetings...so bottling is definitely getting back into the swing! The very succesfull  recent Haddenham boot fair type meeting has obviously started the ball rolling!

Latest  ABC#82 printed and delivered

Those of us who follow all the facebook and internet bottle forums have been keeping up with things (and there has been a lot going on - particularly digging), but ABC realises just how many of us AREN'T that geared up technologically

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.
