Buying & Selling

We are always interested in Trading Australian Bottles. Especially pieces we do not have in our collection.
If we do have an example, then we are only too happy to advise what a fair current market price is and we are also able to broker a sale for a nominal fee, with other collectors, for a honest and fair market price.

Many of the items we sell for people who contact us, are supplied with up to date auction and sale records of items that have "SOLD" Appreciate sale prices are arbitrary figures and seeing an item for sale doesn't necessarily mean it is a current market value. In fact many bottles have fallen in value in recent times. Especially common examples with a value of $20-40. Whereas Aerated Water bottles have remained stable and in some cases, have risen in value.

We use current up to market Auction records, on many of the bottles so you can be assured that the price achieved is fair.
