She even assembled two 2' X 3' retro Coke puzzles, set them with glue and had them professionally framed. I have a couple cartons of bottled Coke - with the Coke still in some of them. Wonder if it's any good still???


My late mother-in-law was like that! Lots of my Coke stuff came from her.

I have a Christmas tree ornament that's a bottle of Coke. I wonder if it's real Coke inside it, or just liquid colored to look like Coke. Must resist the temptation to find out.

I used to have a set of Coca-Cola glasses. Tried to sell them at a garage sale and no one wanted them. I think I gave them to my mother.

Hee, I smiled as soon as I saw the thread title. My brother collected Coke product, signs, and such for years, until my SIL put her foot down when they moved to a new house and he had to sell most of it. He had some pretty amazing stuff, and some of the artwork in the early advertising got me interested in art deco. But it was not a cheap hobby, and it required lots of space. My SIL was very glad that he broke his coke habit, thats for sure!

I have a set of coke glasses that have 'coke' written in six different languages. I remember it was a UN commemeration of some kind, got them when I was in HS. Probably not worth much at all, but I still like them.

I do like the collectibles thread in general. Good idea.


I'm just finding reading these threads are so interesting.
