I said a week or so ago that I was intending to put a small collection together of 60’s Genie Bottles in my newly shelved guest bedroom. I had found three for under £2 each in Evesham and one in Wolverhampton, but I think finding them in such quick succession was a bit of a fluke, but in some ways a spooky message to arouse my interest.
Each time I go mooching in town my fingers are crossed but, with a little bit of birthday money this month and my recent stint at the NEC, I have managed to add a few more via e-bay, looking for low starting auctions and setting a rigid limit of £20 on any “buy now” sale. I have also discovered that Etsy occasionally has a few affordable sales too.
I love that all the colours vary ever so slightly and very subtly, so no two pieces are actually the same colour. Though destined for the bedroom, I made the fatal mistake of trying them in the lounge ……… only to discover they were meant to be there!
I think I now have the bug, big time, so I fear they may spread along with my research and knowledge. There are other colours I would love, but I am already learning that they are of a premium, and that’s where they can stay, there’s always the eternal thrill of the chase, and you never know what will might turn up while I am out mooching!
