Our 44th annual Tulsa Antique Advertising and Bottle Show, held on Saturday, June 18, 2022,  in the

 

SageNet Center at the Tulsa Fairgrounds,  was a great success.  More than 100 dealers from12 states,

 

including California, North Dakota, Michigan, Minnesota and Illinois were in attendance, displaying

 

antique advertising and bottles on 222 tables.  This years show was about 10% smaller than last

 

years due to several factors.  The most significant was our being forced to have the show on Father's

 

Day weekend.  The entire SageNet Center was commandeered by a Route 66  celebration on our

 

preferred date (the weekend after father's day) and we lost dealers and attendees due to  their having

 

other plans for the holiday weekend.  Other factors were the higher transportation costs and an

 

unsettled economy.  Particularly troubling was losing a few significant ACL soda pop bottle dealers due

 

to the date change.  We do not intend to have the show on Father's Day weekend again, and may have to

 

move it up earlier into June or later into July..  We will simply have to see.  The national group of ACL

 

soda bottle collectors have made the Tulsa Show a featured event on their annual calendars and we

 

intend to accommodate them in the future.  Tulsa remains the largest show of its kind in middle

 

America,  and one would have to travel east to Indiana or west to California to find a comparable show.

     A second attraction the day of our show is the massive Tulsa Flea Market in the same building, which

 

was again the largest flea market of the year.  It provides an additional 1000 tables of antiques and

 

collectible merchandise for sale, a large portion of which were bottles and advertising.

     Photos from our 2022 show are displayed below.   Please scroll thru them to get an idea of the

 

breadth of the show as well as the types of merchandise our dealers have for sale.  Those of you who

 

are collectors/dealers may also

see a familiar face or two.
