Treasure!

Philadelphia, Mississippi
November 25, 2015 4:59pm CST
My husband and I were out walking on our land earlier this week. We have a creek that runs behind our house. The current is quiete strong at times and on several occasions we have found old bottles. They have washed up into the creek from old buried trash piles on the land. The latest find was an old Clorox bottle...dated back to the late fourties. One time we found an old square medicine bottle and another time a perfume bottle. We will clean it up and add it to our collection! I wonder if one day someone will find our trash to be a treasure? Do you like finding old things? We do!

not all bottles, but some old bottles have some value. and I totally didn't realize Clorox has been around that long!

Yes, it has been around a very long time. I looked the bottle up and it can sell from $10.00 - $25.00 on eBay.

The bottle might have been made from strong plastic materials.

Who knows one day you will say that it a treasure, a treasure of old memories. You know life is not always the same, sometime we need things associated with good memories and happy days. Be blessed

How do you display your bottles? They sound like treasures, for sure.

You are so lucky to have a creek on your property. Like @Jessicalynnt, I didn't realize that Clorox has been on the market for so long.

we have thrown a lot of old stuff, others were given to people who need it. some were even sold to the junk shop that helped me get a huge 30$ yes it can be treasure to those who badly need it.
