Default Got any empty bottles?

Help a guy out?
Sure could use some empty clear glass bottles.
Syrup bottles, olive oil, 375mm rum bottles, 3 sided "pinch" bottles. Something a ship might look good in. Short is better than long.
If a cork fits in the opening (20 mm), it's ideal.

I'm tired of hitting up antique shops, looking for a deal.
The art store has junk, hobby lobby is expensive for the right stuff, I'm emptying syrup bottles, and I don't drink alcohol.
They won't let me rummage the recycling depot.
Nor would the boss.

I might be able to convince the boss to reimburse shipping.

Check out my work @bottleshipbuilder.com in the gallery section-Jeff b. I don't sell, the fireplace mantle is full, maybe I'll have to give some away. Typical build is 2 months of spare time. 40 hrs or so.
Thanks for reading.

I wish I could help you, Irie. The only ones that I have left are a couple of cobalt blue glass and green swing-top bottles. You might have to light the ships with led's to make them visible.

I appreciate that 2c.
There's a couple of those ring tops down in the basement that I'm not supposed to know about. Clear, but too long. I can get the Enterprise in, but lots of wasted space. She really needs a short rum bottle.

I hope you think of me when you see a clear bottle.

Sorry, irie. Clear bottles bigger than soy sauce size are rare IME. Even wine bottles - which we go through a lot of - are usually green or blue glass. Are we talking jug size?

Is a beer growler too big? All of mine have printing on them. But plain, clear glass ones can be had on Amazon for a couple bucks.

Good idea GB. Looks to be 1.5 pint.
(I soak and clean off labels and scum)

I wish she would have just gave me a gift card to Hobby Lobby.
I still want/ need 10" tweezers. Chopsticks are a beotch to use.
