Welcome to the world of hunting for wonderful glass from the past a hobby that just keeps growing.This is just one of thews thrills you can get that don’t cost an arm & a leg and boy all the super folks you will meet.I started hunting to old bottles while I was in the 9th grade in the town of Southhampton Ma, & Westfield Ma. I took every bottle home that I dug and boy did I have plenty,It wasn’t but only a few years back that I started to be very selective of the bottles I kept, You know you just cant take the whole town dump with you.
I now have a small swell collection of bottles all 1890’s or older along with just a few milk bottles from the 20’s & 30’s mostly from the old local farms.One milk bottle I will cherish just because its barring my last name Swart I am very blessed to live in an area that reals many many old dumps from Western Massachusetts. this area was settled way back in the early 1600’s although I have not been able as of this time to find one that dates to the early 1800’s I will for sure keep hunting but this is not to say I have not dug bottles from the 1850’s some times they just find them selves in a newer dump but that works for me just fine so you see you really never know what will show its self in any dig.
I have been starting to collect as many of my digging photos as I can find so I can add them to this website’s Gallery. I will be updating the Gallery on every dig for now on .I hope any visitors find them interesting.
