Found: Old medicinal bottles

Very excited to have found a few of these old medicine/tonic bottles. While running errands Monday I strategically made the loop around some of my favorite places to treasure hunt.

I did come across a few true pharmaceutical bottles, but wow are they expensive. The ones I purchased were simple over the counter medicine/tonic bottles, much smaller and more reasonable at just a couple of dollars apiece.

I'm looking forward to making these into witch's potions and such for Halloween. Hopefully I can get to it before the 31st...

Love your composition with the medicine bottles -- great background for anyone in the medical field or lab backgrounds. Or altered for whatever. Reminds me of my brother who was a pharmacist. Remind me to show you one of my "old" stamps that might go with this theme.

Great score...I'm on the look out for these as well. Definitely know what you mean about them being pricey. I also know what you mean about getting around to projects before the actual holiday. ;-) You have been very busy with your charms and pendants...so lovely. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
