|2014 Findlay Bottle Show Report
The 2014 Findlay Bottle Show was a huge success.
The new location was wonderful. It was great to have so much space! Wide aisles + great lighting + lotsa bottles = collector heaven!
We had 80+ dealer tables, with such a great variety of merchandise. That's several more dealers than last year, with just about the same number of paid admissions as last year, plus some serious Early Bird hunters. And the crowd stayed around longer, too, since a large dining area came with all our extra space, with plenty of comfortable seating, so everyone could grab a snack, rest a little, and then get back to shopping. And visiting, of course! It's about the friends as much as the bottles, right?!
We couldn't have done it without all the hard-working dealers, and hard-shopping collectors who came and made it such fun! A big Thank You to all who were there!
Our hard-working show chairman Fred Curtis deserves credit for pulling it all together and tweaking all the logistics and tiny details required of this great new location. Of course, so do all the club members, whose time and efforts brought the show off without a hitch.
I'm sure the dealers and attendees join me in appreciating the club's efforts to grow and improve the Findlay Bottle Show.
A big round of applause for everyone!
We have already booked the Findlay Senior Center for the October 18, 2015 show, so mark your calendars now. It's going to be even bigger. Prediction: at least 100 tables, as we had so many people ask us about setting up.
As always, we will ''release'' the contracts in May at the Mansfield Bottle Show. Info and contracts will be available here on the website after that show. Sign up for our newsletter so you will be in the know.

My, how we've grown!
You can see how the Findlay Bottle Show was so much bigger than previous years. The showrooms were roomy, and well lit. We have room for many more tables, so think about setting up next year. It's so much fun during Saturday's dealer-only set-up and dinner.
Whether you want to sell, or come to shop, we sure hope to see you on October 18, 2015!
