From my collection to yours – wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas!

And remember:

If you see a fat man who’s jolly and cute, wearing a red flannel suit, chuckling and laughing away while flying around in a miniature sleigh, with eight tiny reindeer to pull him along… well let’s face it, your eggnog’s too strong!

Cheers to 2010!


December Website Update

December 9, 2009

Less than 20 days before Christmas… are your ready?! 

What’s Supp?

The bottle opener collection had a lot of updates the past month.  Thanks to all who sent in additional pictures and collection information.  The lists are fairly complete – if anyone notices an opener not listed, please let me know.  Help with missing pictures appreciated! 


Andy Juhl collection silent auction was a great success – thanks to everyone who participated!  

There are still shots available and we’ve decided to list them on ebay.  We have opened a store as well as started to put some shots up on auction.  If you’re looking to fill a few gaps or pick up some trades, check out the bidding4andy store:

Tom E., Lois M. and I are adding shots weekly so check back often.  There are some HRC hurricane and pilsner glasses along with Planet Hollywood shots and of course, HRC shots. 

A big thanks to Lois for all her efforts in making the silent auction a success!  She’s an expert at packing shots for shipping now!
