Glass milk bottles are not too common; and these amber ones are even more rare. They have neat old dairy advertising too.

We’ve taken additional space at Antiques On Broadway (Fargo, ND): the big storefront window! Right now we’re showing off some lovely primitive antiques — perfect for the garden, mancave, and your rustic rooms. Taking photos of the outside of such large glass windows is more difficult than I thought! But here’s on scene from the street, featuring an antique cultivator, lots of old galvanized things to plant in, a collection of vintage soda pop bottles, and a enameled vegetable draw from a refrigerator which makes a very cool planter.

And here’s a section of the window as it appears from the inside, when you are near the sales counter. In this photo you can clearly see the antique
Heinrich beer crate, the old Pepsi bottle cap crate, vintage Ford truck hubcaps, and a few other assorted rustic (and rusty) pieces, such as vintage bike wheels and spigots.

This powder blue plastic vintage advertising piece is on our case at Antiques On Broadway; just $9.

And here’s a photo of Ann-Margret, illustrating every young lady’s dreams of her own Princess phone in her room for private calls.

The syrup was made by Brechet & Richter Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota; here’s the article I wrote about the company and the bottle.
