This catalog is dedicated to the memory of Zane Shaffer. He was a pioneer in this field who recently left us. A lot of you have likely crossed paths with him. He was, arguably, the largest dealer in our type of merchandise on the East Coast. His family sold us a large lot of his inventory with the hope that his items will find good homes with people who appreciate them. You will see a lot of them over the next year or so, and we will mark them as such. Here is a note from his family "Whether he was gettin' his road warrior on traveling to antique markets in places like Shupp's Grove or buying/selling online, he enjoyed every minute of it. He held a very special place in his heart for the people, the places, and 'the old things'. It's really good to know that his collection will reach all the folks that had the same passion about them. We truly hope you enjoy them as much as he did."

#ZBOT403 - Updated Set of 40 Different Pharmacy Bottle Labels - Lots of  Poisons
Click the picture to see a large picture of a typical group. You will get 40 different vintage pharmacy bottle labels for $6.00 (that's 15¢ each). The sizes vary, but they average about 2 1/2" wide. They are from pharmacies all over the country and vary in age from around the 1880s to the 1940s. This is mostly different from previous sets and contain at least a dozen poison labels with skull and crossbones. There are some real unusual concoctions here. They are great for old bottles. Pharmacies used whatever bottles they had on hand, so there is no specific bottle that goes with these labels. Go pick up some cork top bottles for a quarter at your local flea market and stick these labels on them. You can sell the bottles for $3 - $5 each. This is a very nice group that we have rounded up from collection in Wisconsin and Washington State. If you order more than one set, there will be some different ones in each group. No two groups will be identical. These are by far the best sets we have ever had.
