Iam the same way. Ive hit a gold mine of milks. Ive dug easily over 100 assorted 1/2 pints embossed/acls/squares, rounds. Also 1/2 gallons/quartes and pints slugplates, acls/embossed you name it. I plan on cashing those in. I also have some saved that are worth some $$..Got a nice Coke thats listed at $75.00.......Id be happy with $20 bucks. All I did was dig it and wash it. Just a Christmas coke patent (1928-1938) from a small town in MI here. Id like to clean every milk bottle outta there and make some $$ maybe at flea markets and then dump whatevers left.
It can be done with a little patience. Most folks don't understand that they will be lucky to get 50 to 75% of value. Like Avon bottles and Beany babies, they used to be worth a bunch but now you can't give them away. The smart folks got rid of them at 50% of value and now the others are stuck with worthless glass.

Thats what Iam thinking, Ive seen the milks for 6-8 bucks each I figured if I got 2.00-2.50 each Id be raking it in and people would be happy they got the "deal" to resell them. Plus the others I have (sodas/masons/meds/misc) I should make a decent amout and keep what Id like for my collection. I figure I have coins/bottles/and other old stuff and tools etc I could set up at flea mkts and wheel off most of it and then dump whats left. Or even make some trades for things I can use. I did that a lot when I sold reloading stuff at the gun shows.

Yup. Sounds like a plan to me. I have a bunch of junk stuff that I'm going to put on a website, if I ever get around to finishing it, and see what happens. Might work.
