Ink Bottle Book

This month the book corner features the new ink book written by noted ink bottle experts Ed and Lucy Faulkner. Above is a pic of the book's cover, and below is pic of a color page.

For a long time we have wanted to do an ink book for collectors. We finally did. This book has just been finished, and is 276 pages including the index. It has 95% color pictures, with company information, when known, in the first section. Other sections include special inks (idelible, printing, bluing used as ink), error bottles, writing accessories including inkwells and sanders, ephemera, and lastly a section on patents. The book received a good review from collectors at the National Bottle Show in Grand Rapids in August. It is an information book, NOT a price guide. This is a book not only for ink collectors, but for any bottle collector who has an interest in inks.

Price is $ 65 plus $8 shipping by priority mail anywhere in continental US. For more info and orders, contact: INKS book by Faulkner

Featured Collector: Mike Newman

Reggie had the privilege recently to visit Mike Newman in Augusta GA. After a nice lunch, Mike showed me his amazing collection. Mike began his collection with bottles from his home town of Augusta, and later put together quite a collection of colored sodas from Charleston. He had the good fortune to take part in the famous Line Street dig in downtown Charleston.

Mike's most recent focus has been on historical flasks, and he has built quite a collection of them as shown below. Mike sets up regularly at shows throughout the Southeast and is a great guy to know. You can Email him at

Hurricane Katrina Aid

Many of our southern friends and family were impacted by the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. This category 5 storm wiped out New Orleans and many other towns in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. There will, unfortunuately, be many fradulent attempts to request aid to assist the victims. We've discovered that the safest way to give aid that will reach the victims is thru the Red Cross, who may be contacted at the web site or by calling 1-800-HELP-NOW. Please donate what you can.

Show Reports

This section provides reports on any recent shows, auctions, or other events where bottles were sold. If you are going to a bottle show that Reggie plans to attend, please bring your show & tell bottles so he can photograph them and publish in this newsletter. If you attend a show in the Southeast and want your pictures/story published here, then just submit your info.

Shupp's Grove Festival July 15-17, 2005

The 4th annual Shupp's Grove Bottle Festival was held in Adamstown PA. Despite the humid weather and occassional shower, the show was well attended with brisk sales reported by many of the 150+ paid dealers who came from all over the Northeast and as far away as California, New Mexico, and Florida. There were some killer bottles available, especially colored historical flasks, figural bitters, and colored umbrella inks. Many of the big name bottle collectors were there, including Barry Hogan, Jim Cheballa, John Pastor (FOHBC president), Jim Hagenbuch (AB&GC editor), Ed Gray, Jim & Jodi Hall, Jeff & Holly Nordsy, Ed Holland, and Rod Walck (BAM editor).

Reggie Lynch setup this year and was impressed by the number of nice southern sodas and fruit jars he was able to purchase. Sleeping in the car Friday night was not the most luxurious of accomodations, but shower facilities were available and plenty of good food, especially the Friday night cook-out. Your show certainly gets an A+ on setup when you can park your car right behind your table.

Below are some pictures from the show. To see all the pictures taken, click here.

Burlington NC Swap Meet July 30, 2005

The Southeast Bottle Club held their summer Swap Meet at Granddaddy's Antique Mall in Burlington NC. About 40 collectors attended, 8 of whom took advantage of the free chance to setup and sell bottles. And quite a few bottles were sold to happy collectors.

The featured speaker was Jerry Roughton, who spoke about his research on NC tokens and showed some very rare examples of NC saloon tokens. Jerry is also working on a book about NC tokens. Jerry previously published a book about NC medicines.

The meeting concluded with the raffle drawing, where Randy Kiger won the Hillsborough NC S-S Coke and Bill Owens won the cobalt BLOUNT SPRINGS soda. Thanks also to Randy for donating some nice NC bottles for our next raffle.
