A good bit of the fun in collecting vintage Coca-Cola signs and advertising pieces is running across old stuff that I never would have guessed I'd buy. For example, this 1948 silk scarf by Baar and Beards Inc., from their "Top Hit" fashion line. The great graphics and high quality fabric contribute to a very fine piece of clothing. It is listed in Petretti's 12th on page 551. I was the lone bidder on an eBay auction, brought her home for 29.99 delivered. Last year I picked up a couple early change purses, now a scarf, uh-oh, could it be Nobucks is becoming a Fashionista? Nah. Just captivated by yet another small, seldom seen piece of Coca-Cola ad history.
