The January Swirl has been mailed. I have a few extras for anyone interested in receiving a free sample copy. Email Alan at firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Jack Sullivan has for many years written an article for each Swirl about some form of Ohio bottle or stoneware history. I have been concerned about preserving this legacy for some time. My calls for help in scanning this awesome resource have gone unanswered. Sad! But it is going to happen. In the right sidebar you will see a picture of Jack Sullivan. Click on Jack and those articles that have been scanned are now available. P.S. when the article opens, you will need to rotate clockwise. Link to articles
In addition to the Jack Sullivan articles, other talented writers have contributed to our success. Those articles are also being scanned and will be available by clicking on the “quill pen and hand” in the right side bar. Link to articles. Enjoy!

185 inside tables greeted the Mansfield attendees. Elizabeth Lacy was able to reconfigure the show into one building. The new format was actually good for both dealers and the general public. No traveling between buildings. Outside setup was very solid with at least another 15 tables. Lindsey Fifer with new born treated the Friday dealers and early admissions with an outstanding dinner. Thanks to all members, dealers and attendees for making this such a successful show. Click on “Read More” for all the pictures. PS Pictured to the left is three generations of Fifer’s. Will Logan be a fourth generation bottle collector; Darl, John, Louis, Logan?
The Mansfield dinner will need additional help. Half of the dynamic duo of Lindsay Fifer and Elizabeth Lacy will probably be unavailable. We need members to step up and replace all the hours of preparation. Please contact Matt or Louis.
Use your cell phone to take pictures at Mansfield mostly with individuals. It is a great opportunity to showcase our shows and our club. Send them to me by either email or as a text. Download the contract.
