Antique bottle collecting
is one of America's greatest hobbies.
Membership is open to anyone interested in antique bottles
Our monthly newsletter, Bottles Along the Mohawk, includes articles of historical interest, stories chronicling the hobby and history of bottle collecting, program listings, show listings, club news, and much more.
Membership in the MVABC puts you in contact with others who share your interests. We invite you to join us! Annual dues are $15 for individuals and $15 for families.
Members enjoy a variety of programs, assistance with identification of bottles, an annual club dig, an annual Show and Sale (always held on the first Sunday in May), the newsletter, many opportunities to buy, sell, or trade bottles, and most importantly, the camaraderie of fellow collectors.
Meetings are held at 7 PM on the second Monday of every month, except for June, at the New York Mills Community Center, Main & Church Street, NY Mills.
The Mohawk Valley Antique Bottle Club was founded in 1994 as a not-for-profit organization supporting collectors of historical bottles, antique glass, and related items. The goal of the MVABC is to promote the collection, study, preservation, and display of historical bottles and related artifacts and to share our knowledge and research with other collectors and with the public at large.
Membership is open to anyone interested in antique bottles and related items or in the history of the firms that used these bottles.
We are affiliated with the national organization, the Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors (FOHBC) and support the National Bottle Museum, located in Ballston Spa, NY.
