Harlic Bag Co. Moves

"The Harlic Bag Company, whose New York office was formerly at 303 Fifth Avenue, has moved to new and larger quarters at 10 West 33rd Street. According to Joseph Lichter, president of the firm, this move was made possible by the exceptional growth of the business since 1931 when they first entered the handbag field.
To celebrate the opening a housewarming was held on March 17, in the new showrooms. Many buyers and friends attended the cocktail party held during the afternoon. This was followed by a dinner at the Biltmore Hotel tendered by the members of the firm to their sales staff.
Harlic Bag Company has their factory in South Norwalk, Conn. In addition to the regular $1.00 retail line, they are making bags to retail at $1.69 and $1.95." (April 1942 "Luggage & Leather Goods" page 54)
