    Check the copyright date under "Workers." It probably says 1939 which puts it between 1939-1949. Before that they changed the copyright every couple of years so it would be close to the actual date.

    COH take _forever_ to sell but they do. Seems like designer Women's jeans are a pretty small niche at least from my experience and maybe that is why they take forever. I always pick up good condition COH though.

    When you go to an estate sale of a guy who shares a name with one of the biggest streets in the city, you know it's going to be good, but I was not prepared for this. True thrift prices, I paid $150 for everything here.

    Some sick cops!

    I went to an estate sale today as well. It was in a country club neighborhood that I was familiar with and knew there was a ton of money there. For perspective, this is the house next door to the house where the estate sale was:

    ...but the estate sale house itself was the smallest, oldest, crappiest house in the whole neighborhood - it pre-dated all the other homes by like 40 years...and was filled with nothing but incredibly overpriced junk, junk and more junk. Total disappointment. So I went to the "good" Goodwill in Atlanta / Buckhead since it was only a few miles away, even though I said I wouldn't cuz @Takai was there yesterday...and found bupkis there as well. Then to one of the "good" Marshalls, where I found an entire cartload of nothing. Hell, I could have filled five carts with all the nothing I found today.

    So I went home.

    Makes me appreciate the days when I do find stuff.
