    Gay-Ola Bottle

    Picked this one up today at the old Flea Market. The guy wanted 5.00 for it. I talked him down to 3.00. I don't know if I hooked him or if he hooked me?? It is a Huntsville, Ala. bottle. Alabear

    Reguardless of who took who, I think it is a cool find. Emphasizes how the meaning of words change over time. Would love to know the history of the brand.

    Good score in my book.

    If it wasn't for me, we would have a used beer cap shortage.

    I think it is a knockoff from the Coke company

    What in the world made you think that? There are hundreds of soft drink brand names that have come and gone through the years that had nothing to do with Coke. There was one in my county that was named "Hazel Cola" after the owner's daughter. Maybe your bottle was for a drink owned by someone with no imagination. "Gay-Ola"??

    Re: Gay-Ola Bottle

    I called a guy in Georgia who is a long time bottle collector. He told me these bottles where made by the Keen Bottle Company out of Chattanooga, Tn. in the early 1900's. He said if you have one in good condition it well bring $50.00. Soooooooo I guess I came out good on the $3.00 bottle
