In July at the 2010 annual Red Wing Collectors Society convention held in Red Wing, MN Louise made an extra special purchase. The jug displayed at left is stamped with advertising for the Capital Drug Company - Druggists and Stationers of Lincoln, Nebraska. Local pottery for Lincoln has been difficult to come by and Louise jumped at the chance to bring this beautiful jug back to Lincoln. While the piece will be displayed in the Schleich Red Wing Pottery Museum, the Capital Drug Company jug will remain a part of Louise's personal Red Wing collection.
This year's convention showcased some beautiful Red Wing, and as always it's fun to look as well as buy. Next year in July 2011, the Red Wing Collectors Society convention celebrates 35 years and plans are underway to mark this special occasion.
We look forward to it!
