Summer Slow Down for Root Beer Finds

Due to the fact that I sold a house, am trying to sell a second one, and having a new house built, I have packed away my Root Beer collection.  As a result, I have been a bit remiss in adding blog entries and have greatly slowed down the growth of my collection.

I have found a few items that I would like to mention.

First is a match book advertising Dr. Swett's Root Beer.  I found this in Kansas as a flea market along interstate 70. I only paid $2.00 for it.  It is a very unusual item and I would have paid a lot more.  Very cool. I love finding items that are a bit out of the ordinary.

Then I found a couple more gallon jugs at the Fort Collins Flea Markets.  Not real special, but two I did not previously have. The Hires jug is older. The A&W is fairly new. Finding them with the original lids is a bit more rare.

Once we get settled in our new home, and I get my collection displayed again, we will head out on a new adventure to see what new items we can find.
