My Lima, Ohio Milk Bottle Collection
Photos of my Lima milks, (and a few nearby towns). This is just a photo album post. I will separate them out and write info/history posts in the future, but needed to document what I have, and figured I'd share the pix with the internet-world.
I'm not going to address rarity or values in this post. I have been collecting Lima Ohio bottles for almost 20 years, and have paid from 50cents to $250, and have sourced bottles from farm auctions, garage sales, bottle shows, antique malls, ebay, and helpful friends. So please don't ask me about values, or where you can buy Lima Ohio milk bottles.
These bottles are NOT for sale.
I am not looking to buy duplicate bottles.
If you have a Lima milk bottle that is not pictured, then yes, please, I am interested in seeing a photo at least, and possibly buying your bottle.
If you are a Lima-area bottle collector, I would love to compare notes, and discuss our collections. Please consider joining me in the Findlay Bottle Club -- finbotclub.blogspot.com -- visitors are welcome to our meetings -- info on the website.
