The Raleigh Bottle Club is a non-profit organization that provides a forum for area antique bottle collectors to get together, talk bottles, buy/sell/trade, organize club digs, and just have fun. The club also serves the community by answering bottle questions and sponsoring an annual Bottle Show and Sale. Next club show is April 27, 2002. Current officers: President: David Tingen Vice-president: John Arnold, Secretary: Frank Bishop, Treasurer / Newsletter Editor / Show Chairman: Reggie Lynch, Co-Show Chairman: Ronald Hinsley. Info: Raleigh Bottle Club, Web: www.antiquebottles.com/raleigh/. All past newsletters are archived on this web page.
Meetings are open to the public, so drop by and check us out. We hope you'll consider joining the club. Club members receive the monthly newsletter, run free ads, and participate in all the fun/benefits the club has to offer.
A fall bottle festival has been proposed for Nov 3, the first Sat after the flea market reopens following the NC State Fair. Location will be outdoors at the flea market. See details at: http://www.antiquebottles.com/raleigh/Nov2001showProp.html. The club will vote during the August 7 meeting on whether to go ahead with this fall festival.
The July raffle raised $59 for the club. Do not have a report yet on results of June raffle.
August raffle bottles: WHITE HOUSE VINEGAR quart in aqua blue (pictured above), labeled HICKS' CAPUDINE / FOR HEADACHES, HENRY T. HICKS / RALEIGH, N.C. (predecessor to Hick's Capudine), and other bottles to be provided.
Club members are encouraged to bring in bottles for the raffle we will have at each meeting. The raffle is fun for everyone and helps add money to the club treasury. For nicer bottles, the club treasury can reimburse the wholesale cost to the donator. Contact the treasurer before the raffle to make arrangements.
Members are encouraged to bring bottles into meetings for show and tell. These bottles are good candidates for pictures and maybe stories in our newsletter.
Looking for other people to sign-up for presentations at future meetings, so let us know what you would be willing to present. Presentations can be 5 to 60 minutes in length. David Tingen may do a presentation on photographing bottles for the Internet. May get Jimmie Wood to do ACL's and Charlie Perry to do White House Vinegar in the Fall.

Here are two cases full of bottles at Granddaddy's Antique Mall in Burlington, NC. The one on left belongs to an area collector (sorry, can't remember who) and the one on right belongs to Reggie Lynch and displays a poster advertising our Raleigh Bottle Club. I know we have other members with display cases in area antique malls. Can post picture of your case here in the newsletter if the case has a good number of bottles. And if you can display a club poster (just an 8&1/2x11 inch piece of paper in size) in your display case, then contact Reggie for a copy or click here.
