Why We Love Vintage Hats!

What's not to love about these kinky, weird, over-the-top creations? At least by today's standards, which is pretty much no hats at all.  But vintage hats are still quite popular in some circles. That's why they sell nicely in my eBay Store.

My grandmother was one to wear her hat whenever she went out of the house back in the '40's and '50's.  Along with her fancy bauble jewelry and white gloves, of course.

Sometimes the jewelry was on the hat, too.

Sometimes they were just covered in flowers and netting.

There are those who collect them today just to enjoy them displayed in their homes. This beauty is in our guest bedroom.

And then there are crazy women (like me sometimes, and my equally crazy friends?) who actually enjoy wearing them from time to time.  Especially when we go flea marketing! This is Trudy, Janine and me (left to right) at the annual Octoberfest in Maeystown, Illinois.

And then there are those days that we just can't decide which hat to wear!
This is friend Janine deciding which hat she needs after I brought home a stash of them from an estate sale.

I hope you wear a hat today!
