[caption id="attachment_1105" align="alignnone" width="575" caption="I've been sniped!"]I've been sniped![/caption] Henry Stone's lucky Civil War jacket (see Tuesday's post) fetched the tidy sum of $35,000 when the hammer dropped yesterday at Cowan's Historic Firearms & Militaria Auction.   The house added an additional 15% selling commission bringing  the threadbare, military rag's  final price to $40,250.  The winning bidder was not disclosed and assuredly, at that price, it wasn't me.  I do hope it finds a wonderful home.  It's been through a lot.

Our design inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, in all forms, and from all angles. The Heritage Departure collections were born out of wanderlust. This transitional collection plays with colors and silhouettes that work beautifully in summer, fall, and beyond.
