My Vintage Hat Collection


I have a fascination for vintage hats- I think it is their sheer diversity of shape and style that attracts me to them, making me want to keep each new one that I find. Most of my hats are from the 1950's as these are usually affordable, compared to earlier hats- they are usually colourful too! I have a glass fronted cabinet that I display most of them in, but I also like to use them around our home on hooks and furniture....I will let the photos speak for themselves...


I have just realised that I have hats everywhere, maybe I should include some more photos tomorrow!! .....Just this last pic...This is my favourite hat stand, probably from the 1920's, far too pretty to put a hat on !!
