Vintage Hat

Yesterday, we took a trip to Newburyport. We love taking the commuter rail to this charming coastal town, with its old buildings, its restaurants, its great yarn store (A Loom with a View) and its fantastic Vintage store called Oldies.

Yesterday, the girls and I were on a mission. You already know that I have a passion for vintage sewing machines, well I also have something for vintage hats. There is one vendor in Oldies that has vintage hats. And look at what we found! A perfectly cute 50's summer bright red hat, with a flocked voilette, and the cutest little bunches of cream flowers.

Don't you love the delicate feminity, the slight touch of whimsy... a perfect hat for an afternoon garden tea party. I can imagine a little polka dot dress with it, a fitted little cardigan with just a touch of knitted lace and of course darling red shoes...

Your new hat is WONDERFUL!! Looks like new. Don't forget a nice clutch bag and white cotton gloves with the pearl buttons at the wrist. What a find! You're bringing back lots of memories of my aunt from when I was a little girl. Thank you for sharing your treasure!

Dear Diane,

Thank you for your comment. I know it looks like new. It only has a little bit of wear on the inside left. Nothing really visible though. You are so right about the clutch bag and the white gloves.
