Latest Addition: Puleo's Dairy Milk Bottle

This quart size Puleo's Dairy glass bottle is the latest item in the collection. As you can see it contained some of their yummy egg nog. As we tweeted a while ago this year they offer their egg nog in vintage glass bottles.

For display purposes it is filled with Styrofoam beads so you can see the designs. The front has the Puleo's Dairy logo and the back has (in sort of the 1940's look) "Wise mothers choose Puleo's milk".

The egg nog in glass bottles can still be purchased. This was bought from their downtown Salem location on Washington st. It retails for $4.00.
