My Vintage Hat Collection

I have a fascination for vintage hats- I think it is their sheer diversity of shape and style that attracts me to them, making me want to keep each new one that I find. Most of my hats are from the 1950's as these are usually affordable, compared to earlier hats- they are usually colourful too! I have a glass fronted cabinet that I display most of them in, but I also like to use them around our home on hooks and furniture....I will let the photos speak for themselves...

I have just realised that I have hats everywhere, maybe I should include some more photos tomorrow!! .....Just this last pic...This is my favourite hat stand, probably from the 1920's, far too pretty to put a hat on !!


  1. What a beautiful photo's!
    I just loved looking at these wonderful photo's. What a great way to show all of yourgorgious hats.

  2. We are so alike Niki! I too collect hats,I favour floral compositions,probably because I love silk flowers and corsages,and would you believe I do have one of those 1920s ladies head hatstands also! mine has a black turban,I agree too pretty to cover with a hat!

  3. Oh, my! Your hat's looks so lovely! Where do you find such things? I love your vintage fabrics too.

  4. So very pretty! Yes please post more pictures of your hat collection and any other corners you have in your home. I bet it`s lovely!
