Annual Bottle Show and Sale


July 17. 2013 11:41PM

The Federation of Antique Bottle Collectors will host its annual bottle show and sale Saturday and Sunday, July 20-21, at the Radisson Expo Center on Elm Street in downtown Manchester. The event, organized by longtime bottle collectors Michael George and Maureen Crawford, will feature more than 250 sales tables, 25 displays, lectures, a live auction and a banquet. “Over a dozen factories operated within a 50-mile radius of Manchester between 1780-1880,” George said. “With so much glass manufacturing history in New England, and such a large collector base, a show ... in Manchester makes perfect sense, and is long overdue.” Early entrance fee on Saturday is $60; admission on Sunday is $5. Entry is free for children.
