As I mentioned before the children decided to sell their mom's lifetime collection of insulators, bottles and other relics at a poorly advertised garage sale. She was a bottle digger, relic hunter and antique dealer. There were really no serious collectors at the sale other than myself and a local bottle collector friend I invited to come over since I really don't collect bottles. Second photo in no particular order I found:

McLaughlin CD 121 in teal green; Whitall Tatum CD 154 in purple; McLaughlin CD 162 in lime green; Double Star and B kegs CD 112; Brookfield CD 152 filled with amber swirls and rocks; Harloe CD 145 in aqua with large bubble and underpour skirt; NEGM CD 162 in aqua with amber swirls; California CD 162's in sage green and smokey purple; Unmarked crude dry process porcelain keg; EC&M B-mold in aqua with large fracture; Pyrex CD 320 clear/straw; and McLaughlin CD 164 in cornflower blue.
