    The Breweriana Collector's Club of America (we collect all beer related items) is having the 46th annual CANvention at the Jantzen Beach Red Lion this week. The trading floor will be open to the public on Saturday. There is an entrance fee of $10 and only members can sell. Anyone can buy, however.

    I was there last night and saw some pretty incredible items, though just the tip of the iceberg....

    One guy had some quart cone top beer cans that ranged in price from $750 - $8,000. Seriously.

    There's openers, cans, bottles, advertising, neon signs...you want it...it's there. I met guys from as far away as Australia. Gonna be a real hoot!

    People will collect just about anything I've found:D.


    My brother thought a Budweiser neon sign was high class art on his wall... We don't talk anymore:rolleyes:.

    That is so true. I have been going to antique shows for years. Just about anything you can imagine, people will collect. Wood planes, Hammers, bottle caps, cartoon glasses, the metal things at the bottom of a floral arraingement, pill boxes or tins, vintage toys, old ammo boxes...............you name it and somebody collects it.

    No pics....however, I did see a can for $8,000 and a quite a few from $400-$7,000.

    The first 3 days are pretty much room to room trading & drinking. See an open door, head on in and see what they got.

    Wow! And when I drank I thought I was a beer snob:rolleyes: guess I was wrong:D.

    Sounds like a cool place to ogle and browse.

    Thanks for the heads up:).

    I should have kept all those old vintage beer cans and bottles I found when remodeling old houses.

    The Canvention was great! I sold a pre-1910 Rainier opener for $250! I paid only $5 for it 2 months ago! I sold 6 openers for a total of $430!
