Augusta General Admission | On the Tables

2019 FOHBC 50th Anniversary National Antique Bottle Convention | Augusta, Georgia | General Admission – On the Tables

Augusta Convention Center | Olmstead Hall

Saturday, 03 August 2019 | 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

12 September 2019

So far, we’ve put out nine (9) Augusta events on the FOHBC web site and social media. This includes all the special events from Thursday, 01 August, like the FOHBC Board Meeting, Mike & Julie Newman Open House, Augusta Museum of History Reception and Sweet Georgia Peaches Bottle Competition. We also covered the Friday, 02 August events, such as the Membership Breakfast, Educational Seminars, Ribbon Cutting, Youth Corner and the Banquet. You can also read the Augusta Souvenir Program.

Now we are going into the heart of our convention. We go through the entry doors of Olmstead Hall at the Augusta Convention Center and we’ll look at all the exciting bottles, glass and related material on the dealer tables. Our floor plan is below and an Early Admission room shot above. See if you can spot the authentic Divco Milk Truck display!

We thought we would share a few pictures taken by our event photographer, Elizabeth Lacy who is also our Public Relations officer. We think she did a great job taking pictures of tables that caught her attention.
