Eazy, incredible haul. So much win there. Especially love the '40s coat.This one is weirding me out, though. I don't understand how it could possibly be from the 70s with those labels and fonts.

Wait, you have a face?
Shoutout to @capnwes for this awesome vintage tweed coat for Little O! He hasn't learned the joy of posing for thrift fits yet.
