Go Up Go Down

I was visiting my bottle source yesterday.  (Grandmama.  Not my Grandmother, but a friend of mine who I cleaned out her shed of bottles.  Now she and her friends have been finding more for me!)  I'm going to end up with almost 400 bottles!  Maybe I shoudl change my name of "Charlie" and the 3 ladies, i could call my "Angels?"   Grin

One of the Gannies said I should visit this place that is off the "main drag".  It's a junk/antique shop.

So i did.  There was one sction of about 6 feet wide by 6 feet tall shelves full of insulators!   Shocked

(I'm not an insulator collect, but 3 weeks ago I wasn't a bottle collector either.  I'm a gold prospector and relic hunter!)

SO, I bought 6 insulators for $25. 

Please be honest.  Did I do OK, Good or Bad?

Here's what I ended up with:

Whitall Tatum 511A
Whitall Tatum #10
Kemble 830 Tempered
Hemingray #56
Hemingray #42
Hemingray Green soaking to get clean No # but "Patent May 2 1893" (I know it's not that old.) It has a burn mark on it that propbably won't come off.

Small chip on tfront, but glass isn't out of it yet! (I think it happened while driving back.)

$64,000 Question. For $25 did I do good? OK, or terrible???

never can tell what you wind up doing/collecting once the bug bites (and bottles and insulators are definitely "relics")
