I love hats even though I think they look stupid on me.
Today, I was able to pick up two vintage hats and I'm now in the process of trying to figure out how old they are. I'm using my good friend google. And let me tell you, there is way too much personal information out there!
The hats came in a box and in the box was a receipt signed by Mrs. So and So, Jr. Well, Mr. So and So, Jr happened to own a business and when I googled the name, found his daughter on facebook! Facebook discussion on public groups is searchable via google and her name came up in a post where she identified her father by name. Like I said, WAAAYY too much personal information. Still, I decided to send her a note that I had come in to possession of some hats her mother had purchased, I'm guessing in the late 60s.
Leelee and I decided to try the hats on. I'm not sure which way to wear the blue hat. Either flat on my head or like Leelee is, around her bun. Both look equally dorky.
And then there's the black one that fits down around my head...maybe. Maybe it's supposed to go over the really big hair and stay in place with pins. I'm completely hat challenged.
