This club is a group of individuals brought together by our love of Wisconsin antiques and the history making them significant. This club is great people gathering up, protecting, preserving and documenting Wisconsin antiques. This is an open community made up of members from all corners of the state of Wisconsin with people interested in Wisconsin antiques and artifacts from anywhere welcome.
The Wisconsin Antique & Advertising Club has a lot to offer as demonstrated by this website. Just $30 gets your own page on the website where you can put up anything and as much as you want about you and Wisconsin’s history inside of club rules. Literally an ad for you allowing you to reach out to the World Wide Web for the bottles, antiques and artifacts you collect and to share your interest.
The club hosts a HUGE antique event at the Milwaukee Domes in late fall. See Show page for details.
The club hosts bottle hunt dive and dig events bi-annually and an antique Picker’s event… Everyone participating buys an item at a flea market then resells it on line. The person with the highest net profit receives a prize from the club including the high honor of most profitable club member.
Providing real value to members is our number one priority. Our second priority is the promotion of Wisconsin antique bottles, Wisconsin antique advertising, Wisconsin antiques and Wisconsin’s history to an ever growing community.
