Treasure Hunting For Antique Bottles

Page 5

By David Cowley

To some, old bottles are just junk taking up space on the windowsills of the kitchen. They truly don’t appreciate the craftsmanship that typically went into making these items, which was usually done by hand. Of course there are other reasons why someone would be interested in antique bottles, and it has to do with more than just how the bottles were made. Antique bottles are truly a part of history. The different types of

bottles tell a story about a particular industry or way of life. For example, medicinal bottles tell us how far the medical industry has come since many elements are now stored in plastic bags. Seeing an old glass IV bottle can take you back decades. There are antique bottles from the pharmaceutical industry that have the name of the chemical and even poison warnings worked right into the

Cache Is Worth A Million Dollars

Forrest Fenn is a well known art dealer and collector in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He's pushing on 90, he has a lot of money and he owns a first-class collection of Native American historical



he led for the thrill of the chase. Whoever would find his bones would also find a fortune in gold. Fenn liked his idea so much, he decided to load up an antique chest with gold and he concealed it somewhere in the mountains north of Sante Fe. If you can figure out the meaning of the nine clues Fenn shares in a poem he wrote, after his cure from cancer, in his selfpublished memoir, "The Thrill of the Chase," you will find his old metal chest which is reportedly filled with more than a million dollars in gold, and rare antiquities. It is apparent, the

artifacts. Fenn recently beat cancer. But before he did, he planned to die out in the desert with a handful of sleeping pills and an armload of gold along with his biography so the world would know his bones. He didn't want to die on a hospital bed. He reasoned the plan would be a fitting ending to his life. A life he spent pursuing fine art, historical relics and objects of art.

It seems everybody in Utah has, at one time, shopped at a LDSchurch-run Deseret Industries thrift store and left with some great deals. The DI stores, all 44 of them throughout 7 western states, offer a wide variety of items at affordable prices. Shoppers can find everything from lightly used and new fashions, books and household items, including a large selection of used furniture, to valuable collectibles, antiques and vintage electronics. It's no secret many Support WAC Advertisers!

antique and collectible store owners and professional pickers make regular stops at DI stores to load up on stuff they sell in their stores, or on eBay. Vintage clothing boutique owners are also fond of DI stores, where they can buy a vintage article of clothing for $3 and offer it for sale in their upscale stores for $50 or more. Knowing what to look for is key to making a profit. Buying low to sell high is how resale stores work. Luck and timing plays an important part when thrifting at a DI store. You can beat the dealers to the good stuff in the mornings when

employees cart out new merchandise if you are fast and bold. It is always amusing to see shoppers attack a cart for first dubs on the most visual items of value. More often than not, some items are just waiting for you. It is a wonder how some items of obvious value can just sit there on a shelf, passed up by savvy shoppers looking for resale bargains, only to be there when you see it as if it was meant for you to buy it to take it home. One enjoyable part of the shopping experience at a DI store is the golden oldie music they play. Shoppers often sing along to a favorite song while a few more eccentric shoppers have been seen breaking into a dance to everyone's surprise and smiles. A lot has changed since the first DI opened in 1938, but the good deals can still be found at one.

Forrest Fenn's Hidden Treasure

Page 15

Continued from page 2

main reason for Fenn's generous offer is to pass on some fun and adventure for anyone who likes challenges and has the time and gumption

to go out everyday to look for treasure. It's out there, you just have to find it. It seems to Fenn, where you find it matters little when compared to the thrill of the chase. Fenn is getting a lot of media attention for his treasure. He says he receives hundreds of emails from people asking for clues. He says the clues can be found in his book

collectedworksbook Fenn has offered this advice in a newspaper interview. Read the poem first, then read the book, then read the poem again, and use the book to understand the clues.

Proceeds from the book go to a cancer prevention organization. Fenn says the treasure is difficult to find so it won’t be found right away, but it’s easy enough so that it’s not impossible to find it.

towns, old dumps, old houses, old homesteads and the campsites on the trails that the early pioneers used to cross the United States. Before you start treasure hunting for these valuable antiques I suggest that you pay a visit to the National Bottle Museum at 76 Milton Avenue, Ballston Spa, NY, to learn the early bottle making methods. The museum sponsors an antique bottle show every June and dealers and collectors from all over the world attend. At the very least you can visit the museums web site. Many of the more valuable bottles were produced in the 1800s

and were handmade and no two are exactly alike. Bottles are appreciated for their look and for the visual appeal they have. Lining colored bottles up against windows can really reflect sunlight and brighten up a kitchen. But more than just visually appealing, antique bottles are truly part of history. For antique lovers, bottles are an important part of any collection and can be very valuable. Happy Treasure Hunting. About The Author: David Cowley has written numerous articles on treasure hunting. He has also created a Web site dedicated to treasure hunting. Visit www.
