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.
Fancy cream 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?
