Well, that's beautiful.
Can you imagine the books we would have if Scott owned that collection? ;)

Wow!
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

Pretty Schweitzer indeed. Schweitzer is what my iPad auto-corrects to as I attempt to type "schweet."
There...that time I got it!

I loved checking out your collection. You're located in Vichy? I wish you were closer to Paris =(... Thank you for sharing!

Very nice, I like seeing the old Absenta bottles as well. Usually all I see is the Oxy collection of pre-ban.

It isn't a collection, they are only items unsold because the drop in prices following the crisis,
or items i bought recently for sale.
I am not really collector, even if i like to keep some items few years.
If i had to keep all stuff i had in my hands, i had to be very rich ! :-(

The only 2 things that i keep are nice bistro tables and documents about FORT BAYARD (Kouang-Tchéou-Wan), a french colony in China.
I can do exchanges !

Oops, my mistake... Then I guess I love "all the things you have for sale" and now wish even more that you were close-by so I cold imagine in my head that I was buying them. =)

That sounds familiar.

Yes, it is the second Fort Bayard in the world.... But i have no interest for this one.
You can find Fort Boyard in France too, very popular !

Quite lovely! Thank you for sharing! :thumbup:
Does Minnalouche know that his absinthe
Will pass from change to change
As emerald clouds to opal,
And yet nothing will change?

Still he drinks opaline.
