Any Coca Cola collectors here?

My Mom is the epitome of one of those collectors and I want to get her something for Chrsitmas - yeah I do Christmas shopping ALL the time as I HATE the rush and Disorder of the Malls during that time


I would LOVE to get her one of those Coke coolers but they are not cheap...got any other ideas? She has trays, bar lights, neon signs , glasses out the wazzu...small tins, tin boxes, tin tip trays, serving trays....basically name it she has it except the bigger Coke things....coolers, whatnot

I have looked on eBay and other auction but those places rape you on shipping and basically think aNYTHING with the name Coke/Coca Cola is a collectible


got any links or have a cooler laying around

Just to make you sick, I was scavanging old homesteads before the coal mine bulldozed the places. Covering the well was a near perfect 6 foot round sign, and in the old barn was one of the coke double sliding door coolers used to hold feed. I would say about an 8 condition.

Bout a 1500+ find.

I just found a Coca-Cola thermometer yesterday...One of those big (12") round ones. Looks pretty old, but in okay shape. Want it?

If you come down here on vacation this year, there's a gift shop on the strip in Fort Walton Beach that specializes in Coca Cola stuff.

Here's a better idea...why don't you cut 3 cans into small trainglular pieces or square for that matter...then ingest them!

How about an old Coke bottle vending machine? Has the vertical glass door, bottles lay in there with the tops facing out I believe.

My b-i-l is a DSM for Coke. I'll see if he has anything cool. Usually his stuff is not available to the general public. Is she a sports fan at all? What's your budget?

We have a coke rolex given for my great grandfather's retirement from coke, a coke cooler in mint condition, and coke drink chest, one of the old ones from a store. Metal and about 6 feet by 4 feet tall, and various other old relics.

Depending how she feels about the Coke brand itself, you could get her sort-of a gag gift and get her some type of Pepsi brand collectable.

I have a mini-file cabinent full of coke bottles here at work. With the $0.10 deposit here in Michigan, it's got to be worth about $20.

The old school vending machines with the door you open to pull out the pop are cool. A store I went to when I was a kid had one, I enjoyed getting a coke just to play with the machine.
