This website is coming soon. A chance to see my collection of limited edition, Coca-Cola bottles from around the world.
How I started collecting…
At the age of 12, I had my bedroom decorated. At the last minute, we decided to put a Coke logo border around the room, just to break up the blue paint. So then I started to buy more bits of memorabilia to add to the theme, like a clock and a bin. And then there was a polar bear. And a pen… it turns out there’s a Coca-Cola everything – you name it, there’s a Coca-Cola whatever you want.
After about six months I couldn’t store everything and I couldn’t afford to collect it all. Then I discovered glass shrink-wrapped bottles and I fell in love with them. I’ve been collecting them ever since, and now I’ve got thousands!
My favourite piece…
I’ve got a couple of favourites. One is a Disney bottle from America with a design going round it that shows the evolution of Mickey Mouse from when he was Steamboat Willy. The other bottle is a Disney one too – I’m a bit of a Disney fan. There was a Disney bottle on general release with the slogan ’75 years of insp-ear-ation’.The one I’ve got is slightly different. It says ‘75 years of fun’, and no-one I’ve showed it to has ever seen another one like it.
Our wedding day had a Coke theme…

to our wedding. All our friends still have the bottles on their
