Advertising Novelties

A novelty item is something that is unusual and entertaining or different and interesting.  Glass novelty items come in many   different shapes and sizes, from miniature beer mugs and pots to larger canoes, bath tubs, and pipes.  These items were sold as souvenirs at circus, fairs, carnivals and amusement parks and you could have your name and date engraved on it to remember your fun experience.  The names of towns were often stamped on an item and some items are found without any stamp or engraving at all. Collecting items from the town where you were born or the town where you live now can be challenging and fun or you could try and collect towns in your state.  Whatever novelty items you choose to collect, they will always be unusual and interesting.
