Grab your coffee (or tea) and come check out the 41st annual Antique Nostalgia & Bottle Show and Sale presented by the Bytown Antique and Bottle Club (BABC).
This event will be worth the drive featuring an impressive fifty tables full of a diverse choice of items.
I am hoping to find an elegant apothecary bottle with an affixed label or shapely 18th century blown onion glass wine bottle.
A funky ink or bitters bottle would also peak my interest. I have been amazed to see how many old ink bottles there are out there. 1001 Ink Bottles definitely opened my eyes to the selection.
Bitters have “a bitter taste” and come from spices, herbs & roots. They were traditionally stewed in alcohol. They were commonly used for medicinal reasons however some people worked a swig into their everyday routine similar to how some take preventative Echinacea to avoid the common cold now-a-days. Bitter me up scotty!
What you will find at the show:
- Little Antiques
- Collectable and Decorative Bottles
- Antique Crocks for the Kitchen and the Home (Ceramics and Porcelain)
- Jugs & Stoneware
- Vintage Decorative & Collective Tins
- Table Lamps
- Assortment of Toys
- Antique & Vintage Postcards
When to go: Sunday, April 13, 2014 from 9:00AM-3:00PM
Cost: $5.00 admission fee
Looks like I have a full Sunday afternoon of searching and shopping between this and the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show.
