Today’s find, an early 20th century J. Coessens of Brussels leather and brass on wood wardrobe trunk. This beauty is heavy duty and sports vintage hotel decals from Paris, Brussels, and The Hague. My guess is that it is from the 1930s given the detailing of the decals.

I picked it up from a local consignment shop. Still not exactly sure what I will do with it.

Cheers,

Amazing find! The stickers provide character patina.

Post holiday budget recovery has frozen the hunt for new acquisitions in January. However, February is exhibiting a thawing trend and March could roar in like a lion with spring estates sales in Atlanta being very popular.

I did have a small find this week of note. I stopped at a local Goodwill, which I call “ The Honey Hole”, since it always has something nice to offer.

I found this sterling silver buckle on a BBs black leather dress belt for $2.99. I don’t think the buckle came from BBs. The buckle is noteworthy because it is very heavy. I assume the maker is Knickerbocker Silver, but would appreciate any additional information.

Here is a sentimental item.

A 50+ year old Windbreaker Sportswear, Danville, Co wool with tartan lining coat.

My uncle was killed in an automobile accident in 1971 and this coat belonged to him. My grandmother gave it to me in the mid ‘80s and I wore it all through college. I have had it in storage for the past 25 years. I just had it cleaned, maybe the first time ever it has been to the cleaners!

It has slight fraying on the right cuff ad a small rip in the arm which I am going to tackle today.

A real family treasure.

Picked up my wife 60 pair of vintage ladies gloves off the bay. A woman was liquidating the collection of her recently deceased 96 year old aunt.

These are French for the US market dating from the 50s and 60s with an assortment of kid leather, pigskin, suede, and cotton.

In the age of Covid, I see women’s gloves making a comeback.....
