Received a fun shipment today from the Bottle Hood company out of California. They make the coolest items out of recycled glass bottles that are reclaimed from local restaurants, bars and events. Did you know that glass takes more than 4000 years to decompose?? Avoiding a landfill fate, local craftsmen turn the bottles into mini works of art. Not only does this company have a conscience, they also have heart....
These limited edition tumblers are designed, bottled and brewed in honor of our Gulf Coast. A portion of the proceeds goes to help the Gulf Shore Clean up efforts. These bottles are truly amazing!
Also available at Gillyweed are the recycled Coca-Cola bottle necklaces on leather straps.
Glass bangles (set of 2) made from Grey Goose Vodka bottles.
Sapphire earrings made from Gin bottles.
Sapphire glass necklace made from Sky Vodka bottles.
And just for fun.. their #1 selling tumbler, The Arrogant Bastard Ale. Are you ready for the 2012 Oktoberfest Beer Tasting event downtown Newnan??? It'll be here before you know it. Stroll through downtown and visit all our shops and restaurants to taste the finest in micro brewed and imported beer selections. Ticket includes a commemorative glass and a take home beer guide. October 26th, 5-9pm. Gillyweed is selling tickets for this event.. cost is $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Our beer selection is below...
Well maybe not exactly a boutique beer but it was on my list of choices.. how could I resist!!! So come by for a fun night of Jimmy Buffet tunes, free Hawaiian Lays, and a shot of Island Lime Margarita Beer.
