Old bottles to be displayed at library

March 30, 2013

Nine-year-old Seth Karnes, of Harveys Lake, will display his glass bottle collection at the Back Mountain Memorial Library in April.

A third-grade student at Lake Noxen Elementary School, Seth has been collecting bottles for four years. He began when he found his first bottle in the woods. “It was like finding a treasure!” he responded.

While still digging on “treasure hunts” to find more old bottles, Seth also goes to yard sales with his mom where he likes to look for unique finds.

Seth has 50 bottles in his collection and keeps some of them in the family hutch in the dining room. His favorites are an old Coke bottle and a fish-shaped bottle.

Seth lives with his mom, Beth Karnes, and his two brothers, Calvin and Colby.
