Connecticut Invention of the Day: Shop til You Drop.


If you are one of those, who following the Thanksgiving Day food cram, delves into the Black Friday shopping fest this might be just the thing for you. A “Combined Shopping Bag and Skirt Holder” patented by Girolamo Comi of Cobalt back in 1906. According to the patent application the device is a ” skirt-holder in connection with a shopping bag, so that a woman’s skirt may be conveniently held up and released at will”. I will leave the phrase “released at will” open to interpretation by the reader…….Happy Thanksgiving!
