Congratulations to last week’s contest: WHEN? correct answer winner: Meme! This bathing suit is indeed from the 1950s. When Emily mentioned that Meme was Homecoming Queen in Florida in 1952 – we should have known she’d have the right answer! We now have a 4-way tie and only two more contests! Stay tuned to this Saturday when we do a mile-high overview of the evolution of bathing suits – with a focus on the fab fifties!

For those of you just joining the fun, here’s a re-cap of the rules:

The first reader who answers the most questions correctly over the next 2 weeks will win 50% off one item in our store!

Also, the reader who has the best answer overall each week (as deemed by The Attic Birds) will win 20% off one item in our store. The weekly winner’s answer will need to be compelling both in content and in clarity.

Both winners will be announced at the beginning of the following week’s Mid-week Quickie.

Now for this week’s challenge – WHY?:

Why would you collect these pieces marked “La-Rel”, “Pell”, “Coro”, and/or “Weiss”, among others?
