...from the TCM store, these bottles are again available, at quite a reduced cost! Here's the link to the spot on the TCM site:
TCM site - Ginger Rogers Milk Bottles
I am pretty sure most of y'all have already purchased one or more of these from the initial offering (I'm with you in that group), so, if you know someone else who would like one or more, or if YOU would just want a couple more, this is a nice opportunity.
Hi everybody .... I see TCM has reduced the price of the Ginger Rogers Ranch Quart Milk Bottles ... a really good price!And I see that if you order over $49, there is free shipping...
Pick some up for holiday gifts!
Contrary to what some purchasers have stated, the milk bottles are the real thing, manufactured in 1942 and from Miss Rogers 4R ranch dairy ... The signature on the COA is genuine and from the trustee of the estate (I didn't have the heart to ask him to personally sign over 500 milk bottle COA's so he gave me permission to reproduce his signature on the COA).
I certainly enjoy reading all the wonderful comments from fans on here ... you love her almost as much as I do :)
...good enough for ME!
Hope this helps y'all out if you are thinking of purchasing one or more of these... it really is a cool piece of Gingerbilia to own... hope everyone out there gets one!
Y'all have a great 'Turkey Day Prep' week... it's almost that time!!!

...BTW, THIS pic is MUCH better representative of our Independence Rose, don'tchathink?
in the interim...
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
