Vintage Style Glass Milk Bottles

On a recent trip to the Laguna Beach area in Southern California, my sister and I happened upon these amazing milk bottles!

Vintage Style Milk Bottles

We were in an expensive and beautiful market called Gelson’s.  In the dairy department they had a display of all varieties of milk, chocolate milk and egg nog (’tis the season).  On one side of the bottles there is the Broguiere’s cow logo (sometimes in blue) and the quote “Milk So Fresh…The Cow Doesn’t Know It’s Missing”.  The reverse side has all different designs.  They ranged from $3.75-$5.75, chocolate being the priciest and most delicious!

These are my favorites:

These are “green” bottles, you pay a deposit when you buy them and then rinse and return.  Check out this Christmas one from last year that just happened to be in circulation when I was at the market! Vintage Style Milk Bottles

I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them when I finish all the milk.  I may pour my gallon jugs into these so they are more manageable for my 6 year old to pour.  A vase for my roses in the summer.  Who knows, but these are going to be on my souvenir list every time I visit my brother in Laguna,

that’s for sure!

  • They are lovely. I’m always drawn to them at flea markets, especially the smaller ones. Love the vintage graphics and fonts.

  • I have the ” milk so fresh the cow doesn’t know it’s missing” bottle. My aunt took a cork that fit the opening, she drilled a hole in the middle of the cork and inserted a pump that she recycled from a Neutrogena Lotion bottle. I use it to dispense my dish soap. I have been using mine for years, as have all the women in my family, these were gifts for all of us one year.
    ( you can use the pump from large bottles of shampoo also, they just need to be large and of good quality to withstand daily use)

    I really want the bottle with the rooster on it. I will have to look for it next time I hit the market.

    • Stephanie, I love the soap idea! Right now I am just refilling them with my Costco milk, and yes, I am that ocd when it comes to organized cuteness :)

  • Does anyone know where you can order bottles like these without the labels on them?

    Thanks!

    • Katherine, I haven’t seen them anywhere, if anyone else knows comment below please.

  • You can also find this milk at Sprouts and Whole Foods.
