    I love collecting antique medicine bottles and pharmacy items. It is addicting! Here is a picture of just some of the things I've collected. Anyone know of a good site to research value of these items? How would someone go about selling some of this stuff? thanks

      Great collection!

      You've listed this in the Collectors Weekly / Medicine Bottles category, so to learn more, just scroll up and click on the link to that section here on Collectors Weekly, then click on the MAIN tab -- that'll take you to the overview of medicine bottles, where you can find bottle shows and clubs in your area, and also track ebay listings, including completed, to get an idea of your items' values. You can think about whether you want to sell all at once to a collector, or to a dealer, or piece it out yourself at a show or on ebay. There are also links to some very informative websites on the MAIN Bottles page.

      That is quite the collection, the more shows are on about this stuff the harder it becomes to find any really good picks lol. I live in a 55 and over park, maybe time to go about and pick my neighbors sheds and whatnot!!

      Great Collection....Lots of examples!!

      The traveling Pharmacy guy went around in those days in Horse and Cart -- Now they STILL spent hours and hours on the Road -- away from their Wives, peddling their wares

      Zach, most of it is machine-made stuff from after 1915. This post is also one of the oldest in CW, in which the user never returned.
