This was our first visit to the Kalamazoo Bottle Show. Adam and Phyllis Koch have been making the trip for many years, but it just seemed so far. In reality it was the same distance as Cincinnati and I regularly make the trip to visit family. The Jelly Jammers had made plans to have their spring meeting in conjunction with the show. Four couples met in the Clarion hotel and shared all their latest jelly related purchases. Friday night was the hospitality with all the great food and conversation. Dealer set up on Saturday was at 8 and the general public was admitted at 10. Nice having an extra hour to sleep with the later dealer set up. The show was well attended and the displays were well done. There was a nice variety of bottles for every level of collecting. We will plan to attend next year.
