Wisconsin antique bottle and advertising club

2017 Milwaukee Antique Bottle and Advertising Club Show and Sale

The 2017 show was a huge success. The market for antique bottles and advertising in the Midwest is very strong. All of the 150 tables were sold far in advance of the show. At the opening Dave and Debbie Kapsos pre-sold over 150 admission tickets to the anxious collectors queued up to get in so when the doors opened at 9 am the aisles were quickly flooded with people. Admissions were up significantly over previous years - almost 600 general admissions.  Dealers reported strong sales. There were some outstanding pieces brought in by dealers and some of the attendees brought in some great pieces as well. The room is spacious with wide aisles and good lighting. The 2018 show will be at a new location at the Waukesha Expo Center.

There were 14 bottle displays and three presentations during the show. Several door prizes were also given away.
