This is the 3rd & Final Auction for the Betty Davis Estate from Council Bluffs Iowa. Betty was an avid collector and was the Founder of the National Soda Jerks Association. Much of her collection centered around all things relating to Soda Fountains, Ice Cream, Coca Cola, and anything found in a small-town old-fashioned Drug Store. Betty was known to buy out the entire inventory of Drug stores when they went out of business, and her collection of over 100 signs and advertising items are a testament to that. Many of these signs are from the WWII era and before, and the quality and care she has given them over many years shine through. Please join us in person or online for this rare opportunity to own some unique and highly desirable items.
