Daddy_Nobu…
(175 items)

Added some old Coca-Cola clothing to my collection recently. A 1930's cloth beanie, and a set of 3 aprons from the 40's-50's. Both transactions were initially eBay bid auctions, which sellers were kind enough to revise to BIN after agreed upon price. I brought home all 4 pieces for right around a c-note total. Two of the aprons were miniature, described by seller as salesman samples. TGBWC thinks maybe they were special made for a child of a company employee. I tested this theory by asking my daughter to strike her best Coca-Cola salesgirl pose, and she was kind enough to play along (bless her heart! :). It made for a cute outfit and is sized correctly. I carefully tacked the items up for display in the corner by my Standard Ice, until I can figure out a better way and/or place to show them off.

    Thanks Bernie! The kids do put up with my Coca-Cola collecting passion... except they call it Daddy's Obsession! :)

    I love it Dave! Certainly adds nice splash to the wall behind that cooler.

    Thank you Perry! This was something different, and I really wasn't sure how to display. I was thinking about hanging them from a set of antique coat hooks, but that wouldn't allow spreading them out to show the images. So I just threw them up on the wall there with tacks (being careful not to tack through any fabric). Sometimes the simplest way works best.

    Arf!! I agree, nice display!! If you decide you don't like them like that, you can always get frames like the ones for sports jerseys, they are a bit thicker for the added material after they are folded, but still look nice and will help in the preservation of these fine artifacts.

    Hey Dave, I just had a great idea! Get one of those green clear glass heads/manikin and put the beanie on it. The Coca Cola green glass against the red and white would be perfect! I have given this a lot of thought.
