Announcement   Welcome to The Old Drug Store! Remember when the corner drug store was a vital part of every neighborhood? If you were sick, your doctor wrote you a prescription and your pharmacist compounded a medicine just for you, carefully selecting the right ingredients from a case full of glass bottles and jars with mysterious labels. If you needed a packet of headache powder, a box of cough lozenges or a bottle of linament for sore muscles, you could find all of these things crowded into display cases and shelves with a multitude of other nostrums. Remember when there was a real soda fountain where a guy made ice cream treats by hand and mixed your favorite drinks one at a time from syrup dispensers on the mirrored back counter? Whether you needed you needed a bottle of medicine or just a cherry phosphate, the drug store was the place to go!

Even though most of these neighborhood stores are long gone, we remember and we're still fascinated by the items that were once part of every day life. The Old Drug Store is pleased to present a selection of vintage pharmacy, laboratory and other scientific and medical items and parenphenalia that we have come across in our travels and collecting. We will also include a variety of soda fountain items and drug store advertising pieces when available, so please check back with us. If you are looking for a particular item, just let us know and we will do our best to find it for you.

PLEASE NOTE: Although we do our best to identify the contents of each apothecary bottle or the type/use of medical and scientific paraphenalia, we are not experts. All of the items sold in The Old Drug Store are intended for display only. Many of our bottles may have residual unidentified contents, and many collectors do not want the bottles to be rinsed. DO NOT use any of these bottles and jars to store or dispense products intended for human consumption, as we cannot assume any liability for bottle/jar content. DO NOT attempt to use any medical device or instrument for any purpose other than display in your collection.

We are happy to combine purchases in a single shipment for reduced shipping costs where possible! If you are an international buyer, please contact us for a shipping quote.

Thanks Charlie, Your service is excellent. My Grandfather bought a drugstore in 1913. It was in the family until 1978. So the dispenser has a good home next to my ice cream table and chairs. Chris

Welcome to my Etsy shop! We are always looking for interesting apothecary, scientific and drug store items for our shop - if there is something you are looking for, and don't see it here, please let me know!

If you have any questions about an item in my shop, or would like to see additional pictures, just ask!

Shipping
Shipping from Fort Collins, Colorado to the continental U.S. - please ask for a shipping quotation for Alaska, Hawaii or foreign destinations. I always recommend insurance for very fragile or very expensive items. It is never a problem to insure an item - just let me know, and I will calculate the fee for you. If the difference in what you paid for shipping and actual shipping charges exceeds $1.00, I will refund the difference to you!
Refunds and Exchanges
I do my best to describe each item in my shop as completely and accurately as possible. Glassware that is decades-old often has minor nicks and fleabites consistent with wear, and paper labels may show scuffing, fading and tears - I do my best to note all of these in the description, but I may miss something from time-to-time. If you don't absolutely love your purchase, return it to me for a full refund (less shipping). I am very careful to pack items so that they will arrive to you without damage. However, I cannot control how the shipper handles an item. If an item arrives damaged, or simply never arrives, and insurance was not purchased, I cannot be responsible for replacement.
