Rainy Days Make For…

Updated Displays

When the rainy days arrive, it allows for some indoor clean-up. Do you collect bottles? Well then, you’ll want to see our newly arranged bottle display at the back of the shop. It’s shaping up nicely! Kudos to George! Here’s a sampling of the varied and unique bottles available at Bahoukas Antique Mall.

Milk to soda bottles, water bottles to juice bottles, clear to blue to brown glass, and even small pharmacy bottles and ink wells. Visit and see the attractive display. They also make great additions to holiday centerpieces.

So with your creative hat on, visit us at Bahoukas. This is just one tiny collection of George’s Collections. Remember, we’ll be watchin’ for ya!

New Collection of HdG Milk Bottles

Do You Remember a Milkman?

Many have fond memories of their milkman delivering local milk in bottles. Some even remember having an insulated box that sat outside the door for the milkman to place your bottles.

Wonderful Local Collection

Bahoukas has acquired an extensive local collection of Havre de Grace milk bottles. Besides George’s personal collection, we have plenty to share.

Dairies often embossed their name, logo, or initials onto the base of their milk bottles. This made it easy to identify their bottles at stores and bottle exchanges. Since milk bottles were used over and over again, it was important for a dairy to get their milk bottles back after use. The more times a milk bottle was used, the more profit for the dairy.

Quarts-Pints-Half Pints

There are so many delightful ways to use these bottles besides just having them in a collection, sitting on a shelf.

Fill with colored water and place on a window sill. Better yet, add some fresh flowers.

Maybe you have a collection – like different colored sands or buttons – that would look lovely kept in these bottles.

Don’t forget the rest of our milk bottle collection!

Bottles, Bottles, Bottles

It’s been a while since we’ve shared our variety of bottle collections. An old bottle is a great way to upcycle – use to keep pens, show off a small bouquet or a single flower, or just add to a windowsill with a sprig of ivy. Check out just a few of our collections in the store.
