CAPE GAZI'rrI; Friaay, eptemver x -eptemver x ,xm) Dealers take a00vards at &qtique Bottle Show and Sale kn Rehoboth Keith and Gaff Fleming of Ellendale stand in front of their perfume bottle display during the Antique Bottle Show and Sale held this past Sunday in Rehoboth Convention Center The Delmarva Antique Bottle Club, Inc. held its Fourth Annual Antique Bottle Show and Sale on Sunday, Sept. 8, at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. There were 56 dealers representing 76 tables of bottles, jars, stoneware, small table-top antiques and other related collectibles. Dealers started arriving early Saturday morning, eager to get a look at the Convention Center. Wheeling and dealing went on from 2-4 p.m. The doors opened Sunday at 6:30 a.m. for the deal- ers, and by 8:15 a.m., a line began to form to get into the show. Door prizes were awarded every hour, and the club again had a most suc- cessful 50-50 raffle going for $1. Over 1,400 tickets were sold, and the winner was Phil Banks of Del- mar. The information and appraisal table was busy all day. Very in- teresting old bottles were brought in by people wanting to know just what they had. The show featured five educa- tional exhibits that were judged for awards: Gail Fleming of E1- lendale (perfume bottles), Marge McGee of Baltimore, Md. (medi- cine bottles), Trish Manfredi of South Glastonbury, Conn. (jelly jars), Rick Lease of Reisterstown, Md. (Heinz products), and Keith Fleming of Ellendale (case gin bottles). The ribbon for the Most Educa- tional display, presented by the Federation of Historical Bottle Berlin Fiddlers' Convention to feature competition The Berlin Fiddlers' Conven- tion strums and strings into its fourth year Saturday, Sept. 21, in the restored historic town of Berlin, just six miles west of the resort areas of Ocean City. What is becoming a tradition, the convention is the brainchild of Frank Nanna and Jim Barrett. The two brought the convention into reality after Barrett got the fid- dling bug when he attended a sim- ilar even't in another state. He passed on his enthusiasm to his friend, Nanna, who accepted the idea immediately, and the rest is history. Music director Nanna has kept the enthusiasm and is a central character in this year's conven- tion. He serves as master of cere- monies of the annual event and his band opens the festival with an hour long set. The convention takes place on Main Street in front of the historic Atlantic Hotel from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and competitions include those for best fiddler, guitar play- er, banjo player and bluegrass band. There are at least 10 en- Wants in each category, and there are cash awards for first, second and third places in each category. A total of $2,500 will be awarded. The convention is gaining its own reputation for local charac- ters and tellers of tall tales. A group of Pennsylvania car dealers comes down each year to listen to music and second guess the judges. Post convention jam ses- sions often occur at local pubs. Nanna is delighted with the suc- cess of the event, however, he hopes it remains relatively small. "I want the convention to con- tinue to be a fun, casual event in little Berlin," he said, "We do not want to be as popular as the Galax, Va., Fiddlers' Convention. They had to shut it down for two years because it got to be too pop- ular and became too much trou- ble." The convention director comes from a musical background, and his family, from father Zip to his son Brian, all pick and grin to- gether from time to time. Nanna is currently active with four bands, Big Hat, No Cattle, Star Mountain Music Company, the Zydecats and the Metamucil Mountain Boys. Nanna said, "I foresee this year's Berlin Fiddlers' Conven- tion as being one of the best ever. We want to be successful, but not participants and no admission fee that successful. We still want to for those attending. To participate maintain the relaxed, easy going, as a contestant, call Nanna, 410- fun Berlin-style pace." 641-4151; for general informa- The convention is Saturday, tion, call Berlin Fiddler's Conven- Sept. 21, in Berlinfrom 11 a.m. to tion Chairman Barrett, 410-641- 4 p.m. There is no entry fee for 0444.
