Digging bottles is how we acquire the majority of our bottles. We trade many bottles that we dig for those bottles that we need for our collection.    At one time , people threw their trash either in a pit, on the ground or down a privy,cistern or well.  We have also been fortunate enough to dig in areas where the town would dump its trash.   We are always looking for new places to dig and would appreciate any leads that you may have.   We often share our finds with the property owners and others who collect.
