Are you a bottle collector, local history fan, or just have that odd bottle on your shelf? Consider attending the Hudson Valley Bottle Club’s fall open house on Friday, October 18 from 7-9 p.m. at the Marlboro Presbyterian Church at 51 Grand St, Marlboro, to learn more about local bottles, Hudson Valley glass-producing industries, and the bottle collecting hobby. Club members will be present to give attendees free identification and appraisals of all kinds of bottles and glassware. There will be snacks and refreshments available as well as bottles and small antiques for sale. Also present will be the club’s assortment of historical material tracing back to its founding in 1973.
The club is currently the only organization of its kind dedicated to preserving this unique hobby in the Hudson Valley. If you have questions or want to join the Hudson Valley Bottle Club, please contact Alex Prizgintas at 845-774-9856.
