It was a few months since Josh passed away and it was time to try disposing of some of his stuff, as his daughter called it. She still wasn’t in the mode for that job, so she delegated it to her two kids, Molly and Gene.
The project was progressing at a slow pace till they dig into a corner and found a case filled with old bottles. At first Molly was set to send them to the local glass recycle bin, but when Gene took a look, his eyes lit up.
“Take a good look, do you know what we have here”, he asked Molly.
“Just a bunch of old bottles.” she replied.
“Take a good look. These are glass bottles, maybe not antique, but you can’t get soda in bottles like this any more.”
When Molly looked closer, she agreed. “Look at this coke bottle, it even has the name of a city in the bottom. I wonder how long ago this one was made?”
“I don’t know, probably back long before we were born. Look over here, grandpa-Josh even had a wooden bottle case. Even if these bottles aren’t antiques I bet someone might be interested.” Gene said.
Molly volunteered, “Tomorrow I’m looking on eBay, then Craigslist!”
