Chattanooga North Georgia Show a Big Success!

The Chattanooga North Georgia Antique Bottles & Advertising Show on March 18th in Dalton, Georgia was a huge success according to FOHBC president Michael Seeliger who made a last minute arrangement to leave snowy Wisconsin for this quick bottle show trip. Show chairs, Jason Herron and Buddy Lasator, put on a great event! There were almost 200 tables sold for the big room at Dalton Civic Center. Special set-ups were from Jack Daniels, Coca Cola and the Huston Museum. The hosts used the P.A. system for drawings and announcements. Jason did an interview that was broadcast over one of the Chattanooga television stations. This certainly helped the walk-in traffic on Saturday. A great last-minute change was that the dealers were allowed to set up on Friday, if they wished. Several other Southern Region show chairs were there including Jack and Jim Hewitt, Keith Quinn, Greg Eaton and Stanley Word. The concession area was open from 9:00 am until about 2:00 pm on Saturday. We hope you enjoy these photos by event photographer Aaron Martin with Double A Photography.
