Lately we’ve been looking for vintage hats to go with the vintage gloves collection for Southern Vintage Table. (By the way, we now have a great assortment of gloves including red, pink, brown, black, blue, yellow, white and off-white. They are precious!) We figured that to complete the authentic vintage look, we needed some chic hats as well! As I searched online, I came across an estate sale listing nearby. One of the pictures showed a bed full of ladies hats. I knew I had to go.
As soon as I arrived after driving an hour, I went straight upstairs to find that bed. There they were – a treasure trove of vintage hats. As I inspected each and every one, I tried to channel the previous owner, Mrs. Turner. I imagined what she might have been like, why she choose to buy each of these hats, where she went wearing them and how beautiful she must have looked. As people came passing through that bedroom, looking at the furniture and the other stuff, I was deep in thought, studying these very personal and revealing items of Mrs. Turner.
I selected 6 – one covered in feathers, a blue one covered with beads, one with a big orange bow, a orange one with a veil, a pink hat with lots of netting and a gray felt hat with a big feather. I love every one of them and you will, too!
Honor Mrs. Turner by booking a tea party or shower package with Southern Vintage Table – gloves and hats are included! Be sure to check out more of our vintage hats and gloves on our Pinterest boards!
