It all started with two cheap little salt shakers I got out of a gumball machine. Since then, I've been having fun collecting Coca-Cola stuff. I thought others might enjoy seeing some of these items, so I made this site. Most things probably aren't really considered collectibles, but I think they are kind of neat.
Over the years, I have added many new things beyond my collection, so there is a lot to do here. I hope you learn a little and have some fun, too. Enjoy!
Q & A
Do you sell Coke items?
No. I just collect them.
Do you trade Coke items?
Maybe. I have a few duplicated items that I will trade. However, I will only trade in person. It is too easy to have deals go sour over the Internet.
Is this all your stuff?
Yep, it's all mine, but it's not all I've got. I will try to add more items periodically, but I manage a number of web sites and updates here aren't as often as I would like them to be.
Do you know a lot about Coke Collectibles?
No, far from it. Most of the information I get is from Petretti's Coca-Cola Collectibles Price Guide, B.J. Summer's Guide to Coca-Cola, checking out the Internet and looking on eBay. The only thing I really know about collecting is to watch what you buy and don't pay top price for items in less than mint condition. Petretti's book gives you some great guidelines if you're looking to buy older collectibles.
Where can I find out more about collecting?
A nice place to start is with various Coke sites. (Try checking out our Links page.) You could also check out alt.food.coca-cola in the newsgroups and Yahoo (and probably other search engine homes) has some nice clubs on Coca-Cola.
Where can I get Coca-Cola items?
There are lots of places on the Internet. eBay is great, but be sure you know the value of what you purchase. You can also find merchants on the web. I have a list of them for you in the Merchants page here on the Net. Cracker Barrel also carries many Coca-Cola items along with Spencer's, Wal-Mart, Garden Ridge and other local merchants and department stores. Dollar stores, yard sales and flea markets are also a great place to look.
