I'd like to share with you my big huge vintage hat collection. My grandpa is a pack rat and kept just about everything of his mother and his wife, my grandmother, that he could get his hands on. My grandma hates it. So every time I visit them she tells me to sneak into the upstairs closets and take whatever things I like. I don't like hoarding things or collecting things really. But these are special since they both functional and fashionable AND they hold a lot of loving family memories. These hats have been slowly released from their claustrophobic environments over the past few years and have found their way into my home. I keep all of these at my parents house since they are so fragile and precious to me, plus I move about every 9-12 months. But I keep 3 additional hats of my grandma and great-grandma's with me here in Seattle just because :) That is a grand total of... 13!
I think most of them are from the 30s, 40s and 50s. The one below is my grandmother's get-away hat that she wore leaving her wedding in the get-away car. Isn't it just amazing! (ps, my 15 yr old sis is my favorite model :)
