Columbus 2018

With threats of icy roads and monster snow falls, the Columbus Antique Bottle Show and Sale held their annual show. Fortunately for those traveling to the show, Columbus and much further to the north Cleveland, remained on the warmer side of the front and experienced only rain on Sunday after 9 AM as temperatures hoovered in the 40’s. Columbus had a sell out sales floor with some great high quality bottles for the buyers. See “Read More” for all the great pictures.
