My Coke Habit

Postby boswellbaxter » Fri December 31st, 2010, 1:25 am

Like every good Southern girl, I like my Co-Cola! Some of these are reproductions, but others are the Real Thing. The big Coke button is original.

When I missed a flight connection in Atlanta a couple of years ago, I took the opportunity to take the subway to the Coca-Cola Museum, where I whiled away a couple of hours, all the while dragging my carry-on luggage behind me.

There is an antique store here in town, where one dealer's booth is nothing but Coca-Cola memorabilia. All that red is blinding! Pretty neat, though. I really like the old, turn-of-the-19th-century Coca-Cola ads/murals.

Do you have any of the Coca-Cola Barbie dolls? :)

Love your title for this thread. hee hee

Do you have any collections to share? Wizard of Oz, maybe? ;) It's funny because I never intended to discuss my Barbie collection -- I had no idea that anyone else here would have a similar interest. I just sort of got pulled in to talking about it, so now I'm trying to pull someone else in. :p

I do have my OZ obession to share, but haven't had the time yet to put it into words. This weekend I hope.

Yes, I have a couple of the ones that they put out in the 1990's, plus some of the soda fountain series (and the soda fountain itself).

Hi Misfit,
Have you ever heard of this bookstore in Manhattan, Books of Wonder? I mention it because they have a huge inventory of OZ books and prints, old and more recent editions. They have a website if you want to check it out. http://www.booksofwonder.com

Sorry for the highjack.

No I haven't, thanks for that. I'm almost afraid to look :o

I once told my mom I liked Coke stuff. I got it then for every Christmas and birthday: Coke t-shirts, Coke tin signs, Coca-Cola Barbie, Coke wooden boxes, Coke cookie tins, Coke pictures . . . So much that I ran out of places to put it.

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???
