Vintage Hat Find

The other day I was driving and saw a garage sale sign.  I didn’t have much time, but I decided I could spare 2 minutes.  As I pulled up, I saw a gentleman.  I asked if they were open because it didn’t look like it was.  He said they weren’t opening for about 3 hours, but I could come in and look around.  I did a quick look through and then spotted these boxes with vintage hats sitting there.  There was no price tag.  Since I didn’t have much time, I asked how much they wanted before I looked through them. The man got  his wife.  I was expecting a price per hat, but she said, “Oh $10 for all of them.” I didn’t even take the time to look through them, I just handed her the money and took my treasures, hoping for the best.

When I had a chance to look through them I found these.

Fun feathers and flowered hats.

Hats that have things sticking up.

Black hats.

Fancy cream hats.

Veiled hats.

Winter faux fur hats.   Remember I live in North Dakota so these were definitely needed.

My most favorite hat is this one.

It just reminds me of a hat that might have been worn in the 1920s.  I do not know that for sure.  It actually was stuffed with newspaper dating back to 1966.  But I think the woman who wore this hat must have hat a fun dress to go with it.

All in all, there were 24 hats in those two boxes.  I scored big time.  I guess the moral of the story is if you see a garage sale sign and have just two minutes, stop.  You never know what you are going to find.

What is your best find at a sale that was a spur of the moment stop?
