Downieville Antique Bottles & Collectibles Show

A bottle collectors paradise! Coming to Downieville, CA on Saturday, September 10, 2011 is the annual antique bottles and collectibles show “Bottlemania! A Blast of Glass from the Past”. The show is being held in the Downieville School Gym at 130 School Street. It opens at 8:00 am for a $10 early looker fee and is free to the public from 10 am to 3 pm.

The hobby of bottle collecting is strong and continues to gain popularity. Bottle shows are great fun and expose the collector to bottles of every type. Even if you know nothing about the hobby-you will find the Downieville Show to be very interesting and will provide an opportunity to talk with numerous experts. Their enthusiasm for the bottle collecting/digging hobby is contagious! You’ll be in the company of real people who dig holes in the ground for fun!

In addition to antique bottles, shoppers will find antique stoneware crocks and jugs, trade cards, advertising tins and signs, postcards, ephemera, and a large assortment of antiques and collectibles. Displays will feature western beers, medicines and miniatures. There’s something for almost every kind of collector and available for prices anyone can afford. Don’t forget to buy your raffle tickets for some great prizes!

Downieville is located on historic Highway 49 in the northern gold country. If it's your first time attending the Downieville Show-expect to slow down and step back into time in this quaint little gold rush community. It’s the perfect setting for an old-fashioned, down-home Antique Bottle Show and Sale. You can park and walk to the show, museum, shops, restaurants and wine bar.

A few sale tables are still available. For dealer or show information, please call Rick or Cherry Simi (530) 289-3659 or email:

We'll see you here in Downieville!
