Coca-Cola collectors to meet in Texas

Is your Coca-Cola memorabilia the real thing? This convention will provide you a great opportunity to get your items appraised.

Coca-Cola collectors from countries around the globe will meet in Grapevine July 1-5 at the Gaylord Texan Hotel to buy, trade and sell their most treasured possessions from their personal collections.

The club is a non-profit, grass roots organization run by collectors and their families who are interested in the history and memorabilia of the Coca-Cola Company. The club issues a monthly newsletter and has local chapters who sponsor regular meetings and events throughout the country. Our organization is one of the oldest formal collectors clubs in the country. The first convention was held in Atlanta, Ga., in 1975 and has met in different cities. This is the convention’s third trip to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

During the convention, hotel rooms are transformed into mini Coca-Cola stores, where attendees often exhibit the result of years of collecting. The history of the world’s most well-known product is represented in collections including everything from current promotional items to vintage calendars, signs and advertising displays dating from 1816.
