fresh and renewed – harvey’s bristol cream blue bottle

July 30, 2013

The vessel for today’s Fresh and Renewed post was acquired for $2.00 at a little summer flea market I like to visit when we head up to the cottage. I have used bottles before for this column but I could not pass up the stunning cobalt blue colour.

This pretty blue bottle used to contain Harvey’s Bristol Cream, a Spanish Sherry, which you can still purchase at your local LCBO for $15.45 a bottle. I’m sure the $2.00 I paid for the bottle was too much; I’m ok with that. But do note that sometimes you have to do your research before you spend your money, especially at flea markets.
