Have you ever considered seeking adventure in an abandoned dump? Did you know that old bottles have a story to tell? If so, you will appreciate the eccentric charm of Tales of an Upstate New York Bottle Miner.
Discover how one generation's trash may become valuable Americana. Vintage bottles, pontils, brass belt buckles, clay pipes, Indian Heads, bisque dolls, and pill tins are just a few of the treasures unearthed.
Join an eclectic group of characters as they traipse hill and dale of Melrose, Babcock Lake and Hoosick Falls, New York, in search of collectibles and memorabilia to trade with fellow miners and sell at flea markets.

Recently I received Honorable Mention for my short story A Pinch of Spice in the Windmill Women Fiction Contest. Congratulations to winners Marsha Porter CA., Lori A. McDonald IN., and Alicia Stankay PA. Thank you to the judges. An interesting note on the Judges comments for writers to consider: *Some stories had a few typos and format problems *There should be no double spacing between paragraphs *Some stories had unnecessary wording *Some endings were flat or fell off *Too morbid. Good writing! Pat Crandall
