7th August 2014

Gippsland Collectables: Exciting news from great friend of ABCR Auctions, Wayne Harris. Yesterday (6th August) Wayne opened his collectables shop in Traralgon! While bottles will be a major feature you will also find all sorts of other collectables including Coins, stamps, ephemera, tins and much much more. This will be a great focal point for local collectors and an essential stop for collectors travelling to the Latrobe Valley. The opportunity to stop by and chat to Wayne is, on its own, not to be missed as there is no-one in Australia who has more knowledge about old and antique bottles.
And so to the details:
Address: Shop 3, Seymour Arcade, 63-69 Seymour Street, Traralgon.
Opening Hours: Wednesday-Friday 9 am to 5 pm, Saturday 9 am to 1 pm.

And don't forget you will always be able to find bottles of all types for sale at Wayne's longstanding page - http://www.ozbottles.net/

Next Auction: When is it? Is the question we are hearing more and more. It is truly gratifying to hear that so many people are looking forward to our next auction. At the moment we don't have any definite news - don't misunderstand, we have loads of stuff to put up (in fact the next auction will be around 1000 lots again). Most of the images are taken and processed and the descriptions are largely done. But we have been experimenting with some hosting and software ideas so that we can really be satisfied that we are providing absolutely the best possible service for you. Currently it would seem we will have things bedded down in the next couple of weeks which will mean we will still aim to end the next auction on the last weekend of March, but first there will be more testing. Of course if you register to bid then you will always know when an auction is on. Now on to some things that do have definite dates!

Warrnambool Show: South West Bottle & Collectables Club Annual Show. Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th February 2014. Wannon Rooms, Warrnambool Showgrounds. For enquiries or a schedule contact Rex via email or phone on 03 5528 4243.

Toowoomba Show: Darling Downs Antique Bottle and Collectables Club Annual Show. Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th February. Toowoomba Showgrounds, Glenvale Road, Toowoomba. For enquiries contact Dawn on 0407 662 206 or 07 4638 4832.

Toowoomba Auction: As usual on the Saturday night of the Toowoomba Show GDL Auctions will be holding an antique bottle, potlid and stoneware auction. Graham and team have put together a superb selection of 300 lots, should be a very interesting evening!
