Vintage Hat Fool and a Summer's Day

Can you think of anyone foolish enough to leave an air conditioned house on a 95 degree day to drive an hour to look at vintage hats?! Yes, that would have been me. I could have been at the beach like this young gal.

But I had such a great time! I found hats from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s! I had to try on every hat of course. So by the time I left The Flower Bin Antique Shop I was a bit disheveled,  I had hat hair, I was dripping wet, and I was smiling ear to ear! No complaints here.

Hats are all inventoried and now it is time for a bit of cleaning and repair. Then on to photographing and listing. Soon, very soon. 

 Take  a look at other women enjoying their summer day!
