This club has been formed for collectors of all things antique and collectable – particularly from Western Australia. Collecting old bottles is part of our social history and is a popular pastime for many.

Our club is a place to show off your items, and also gain knowledge of our rich history in WA Aerated Water Works, Bottling Company’s and WA Hotels as well as all types of other collectables and antiques.

Antique collectables are also our passion with toys, garagenalia, kitchenware of all kinds, Australian Tins, ephemera, tools, postcards,  old dog tags, old registration plates, buttons, glassware, and Australian ceramics all on the list of desirable finds.

The Bottles and Collectables of WA club meetings are to be held on the 3rd Tues of each month at the RSL Belmont – 22 Leake St – starting at 7.30pm. There is a bar, with a light evening supper provided, so that we can meet and show off our latest treasure find, share information and knowledge, in a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

Visitors and new members are always welcome!

Club Auctions and Events

Our club auctions are a popular social day for members and a great way for us to be able to buy that special item missing from our collection. This also raises much needed club funds in order for us to keep running! We hold two auctions a year usually in April and October – depending on stock availability.

We are always looking for collections or items to sell from both the public and club members. With keen collectors in our club, there is always friendly competition for that rare item. Our Auctions are professionally run and fully licenced. Our committee will appraise your items, catalogue, photograph and pack your items and provide you with a copy of all paperwork to protect all parties.

Our vendor fees are very competitive so if you have items to sell please get in touch with our club secretary for a chat. Email us at info@bacwa.com.au or contact us via this website.
