Apologies for the lack of activity here as of late. A sudden and unexpected event on July 4th pulled us away for quite some time and put the skids on our anxiously anticipated setup at the the show.
One collector had the following to say;
"A lot of talk at the show about Ralph Hollabird selling off his Western Soda's collection. Some "highrollers" spent some big bucks on some of his stuff. American Bottle Auctions brought a lot of items to sell outright and also brought quite a few Western Whiskies to promote for their next auction. That brought out quite a bit of interest. The show itself was at least OK for us. I noticed a somewhat light crowd for early birds and as usual the crowds came in waves at various times. But overall I enjoyed myself and catching up with others."
Another reported picking up a nice Wolters Bros. / California St. for a song.
Sounds like attendance was a bit light, but those that made the show came away with some great finds at fire sale prices.
