Here is the show information for the 2009 version of the Utah Bottle and Collectibles Show.
It is a very small show, but has been ongoing for upwards of 40 years. We don't have an official bottle club in Utah, but the "bottle hobby" is alive and well in the Salt Lake area. Most recently the bottle show has been put on by the "Utah Collectors" group. Check out their webpage: http://www.utahcollectors.com/ Not Bad!!
If you are in the area ?? stop in and say hello. I know there are at least a 8-10 glob top collectors from Utah that are following this blog... part of the vast silent majority. I can guarantee you that there will be at least two tables at the show that will have fifths for sale. Plus all the stories, information, and other nonsense us glob collectors love to distribute.
The report for the Utah Bottle Show is pretty favorable. I think the traffic count was alot higher than last year. From 9 till noon it seemed quite crowded. One nice looking Teakettle with a small repair in the base found a new home to an up and coming collector. I sold a Circle Cutter t-43 to fairly new collector. He has added 4 or 5 globs in the past 24 months.ReplyDelete
Orville P. came to the show with a box of globs to reminisce over. I haven't seen his bottles for 10 years or more, but they were all nice examples of the more often seen fifths. Seems like as a rule, better examples of the more common fifths were around 10-15 years ago. The better examples now are being locked away and replaced with lesser examples. When a nice example of a common fifth comes out now, we are shocked at the price it brings???
Sonny C. of Montana/Arizona/troutstreams anywhere, made it to the show. Good to visit with him as always. Matt Lawson made the trip up from San Diego. He and Ivan O. were planning on doing a little fishing. With a shovel?
Visited with Dave B., he is waiting for his latest acquisition to arrive from American Bottle Auctions. He is putting together a super collection.
Glen G. and Reid G. always have a table at the Utah show. The brothers have probably forgotten more about glob whiskies than I will ever know.
Had an enjoyable time visiting with old friends, making a few new ones and I even added a few wall hangers to my bottle room.
