I collect Coca~Cola memorabilia. I have been collecting since I was about 5 years old when my aunt gave me my first antique Coke bottle. Since then, I have collected thousands of items from vintage vending machines to antique ads from old TIME magazines. 99% of the items that I have are authentic and have all been appraised. I keep it as a 'all else fails' money source, yet enjoy it thoroughly.
I have always loved the advertising schemes that Coke used in their campaigns which I believe is what got me collecting in the first place.
