Back in the early 70's in Timmins a group of us would go to old dump sites to dig up antique bottles. I had accumulated a nice collection of bottles through this digging. However in the mid eighties, I threw them out. I rarely regret getting rid of stuff...but this I regret. I now am a bottle collector aficionado. I love the attention to the details in older bottles as well as their colours. Bottles can tell you their age. These bottles in the picture are on display at the Bathurst Heritage Museum.
In my studio I showcase my bottle collection so that visitors can see the origins of some of the sea glass shards.
