Hats Off To You Miss!

Straw Daisy Hat: $2.
Pink 1940's Bow Hat w/ Veil: $4.
1950's Floral Topper Hat: $3.

Well, I was about ready to give up on finding vintage treasures at garage sales until today. I spotted in the newspaper under the garage sales an advertisement that said "vintage market." I was curious and the sale was only two streets away from where I live so I decided to venture on over and take a peek. I was awestruck as soon as I pulled up to the garage sale. There were SO many gorgeous vintage treasures. I honestly thought I was dreaming because at garage sales usually there's only kids toys and baby clothes!

I zoomed right to the the chest that contained a bunch of vintage hats, of course! Wow... I still cannot believe what fantastic luck I had! I walked away from the sale with three new (to me that is) hats!

The first one in the pictures is a little straw hat with a white ribbon around it and daisies in the front. It reminds me of something a little girl would wear, but perhaps that's why I like it so much! The second hat above is my favorite hat I got today, and my favorite vintage hat I've EVER gotten. I'm seriously in love with this hat. It's beautiful and everything I've always wanted in a vintage hat! Pink, a giant bow, a veil. What's not to love!? Surprisingly the veil is in perfect condition. It seems that someone had this beautiful hat in a hat box for seventy years and never took it out because it looks flawless! The final hat is an adorable little 1950's floral topper hat! It only has just a tiny little hole at the top, but it's nothing really bother some or eye catching.

I am so, SO excited to be lucky enough to own these gorgeous vintage hats and I can't wait to start wearing them. First up is the pink bow hat tomorrow for church :)

Thanks so much for following my blog! I'm following yours too now, I'm glad you found me and visa versa!

really great finds!! I do not have great luck with vintage hats. I find some OK ones, but never in really good condition like these babies. Maybe I need to hit more garage sales instead of only thrift stores, and (my favorite) goodwill. Seriously yay for you though.
