Thrifted Amber Jug

Did a little thrifting this week with my cousin that just moved back to town.  He was needing to furnish his new apartment and I just couldn’t resist picking up a few items myself.
Here is the gallon size amber jug I purchased.  I have no idea what I will use it for but it spoke to me, so I made it mine.
 I really like the color it has with the light streaming through the jug.
The lid says that it is Milk, but I think not.  I have never seen the milk man deliver milk in an amber jug.
I normally see these types of jugs with 3 big XXX on them and we all know that doesn’t mean milk.  
No matter what it’s original use was, I still love the character is has.
 I did pick up other items on that trip and will show you those later in the week.
 Anyone have any idea what really did come in the jug?

  2. Looks like a large syrup jug perhaps. We have some large jugs without the finger ring and they are old Clorox bottles but they are different then this one.

  3. I love big bottles like this and the color is great. Perfect for this time of year. I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed the cooler temps!

  4. Hmmm, cider maybe? Regardless, that amber color is perfect for fall!

  5. I seem to remember my aunt having one like this when I was young. It had syrup in it.
