Just Your Friendly Neighborhood Apothecary

Last weekend we spent some time at our friend's cabin in Buena Vista, Colorado.  It is a small and super cute town in central Colorado. While driving through the town on Friday afternoon I spotted a thrift store and managed to con the husband and kiddies into playing at the park next door, while I checked it out. Isn't it always fun to hit up thrift stores and consignment stores when you are away from home? I always find exciting treasures that never seem to be at my usual stops.

The very first thing I stumbled upon was an old hutch FILLED with old bottles. Like A LOT of old bottles. I bought 15 and I bet there were 120 there. The shop owner told me some poor old dude donated all of the bottles because he was moving and his wife informed him the bottles were not invited.

I am thinking about selling small groups of them in my ETSY shop, but I am quickly growing attached to them.

As I was paying for them, I kept thinking to myself, "I should be buying more..."

Look at these rusty and crusty lids.

Every bottle had a fitting lid!

How am I to be expected to part with these lovely pieces of history? I mean, Mrs. Carpenter needs to take one tablet morning and night, how do I sell THAT?

I may just keep them for a teensy bit longer, maybe the novelty will wear off and I will be content to sell them...eventually!

  1. These are AMAZING! I definitely wouldn’t be able to part with them. TOTALLY jealous of this find!

  2. I so wish I had known you were going to Bueny last weekend! My great grandparents settled Buena Vista (pronounced with a hard u instead of the normal pronounciation) many, many years ago and my Dad was raised there. I so love that town and my most favorite place in the world is Cottonwood Lake above Buena Vista in the colleigiate peaks. I’m glad you had such a fun time. It is truly a lovely town with great history!

    • WOW! I LOVE how to locals pronounce it with that hard “u.” I tried to hike Princeton my very first week in Colorado and about died 1/4 of the way up. I have successfully;y climbed one fourteener since-and I do not foresee climbing any more! What an amazing heritage you have there in BV!

  3. What a find! You must have had the time of your life!

  4. VERY NICE find! I Love old bottles, but mine never have the labels! Those make your bottles MUCH more valuable! $$$ I spent a fun weekend in Buena Vista many years ago, at the ‘Fib Ark’ festival…a bunch of kayakers go down the river and cheat death…AND there’s a rubber duck race! Loads of craft vendors and fun things to do, check it out!
