Had a wonderful trip through Nebraska, Iowa and Illinois. Here are some of the treasures I was able to find and bring home. As my Son-in-law so nicely explained to my wife, I am preserving American History.
The Root Beer Revelry Store
This store is located in Galena, Illinois. It's primary focus is on selling root beer. They have a very nice collection of old cans, bottles and other root beer items. They also sell many brands of Root Beer. I picked up a case of root beer in preparation of our annual Root Beer and Pizza night in April.
This Frostie bottle topper is awesome. I have not yet been able to determine an exact date for it. I am guessing it is from the 1950's. It is my new favorite item.
One guess where I found the Huskies Root Beer bottle. In the Nebraska antique malls and fleamarkets, every booth had at least one Husky item. Some we like a Husky shrine.
