No other show in Minnesota offers the unique blend of antique bottles, advertising, and stoneware featured at this event.  For 43 years, dealers from across the Midwest have traveled to the Twin City area to sell at this show.  We are pleased to announce our new location, the KC building on American Boulevard, just .2 miles west of Lyndale Avenue South in Bloomington.  The 6000 square foot show room will be filled with artifacts from the saloons, breweries, drug stores, country stores, barber shops, soda works, and potteries of the past.  Click on flyer below for more information.

2012 Favorite Finds

We came across a lot of 6 Billy F. O’Hern calling cards at a local antiques show this year.  Shown here are the 4 varieties found within the 6 cards.  O’Hern was a Minneapolis liquor dealer.  He started business in 1903 and stayed open even after Prohibition was enacted, serving soft drinks.  Below are two other O’Hern items:  a Merry Christmas stein and a flask.
