1940's FELT HATS





Just thought you would like to see the 1940's felt hats I rescued at the Antique fairs. Aren't they wonderful?
At the Newark fair I had a green walking jacket on and I wore the green hat for a while. A couple of hours later one of the exhibitor dealers came to me and after talking for a while it turned out that she was learning to felt, and so the chatting about felt making went on and on as it does.

These hats will be for sale in my
Oddities Antiques website
tomorrow (Wednesday 11th february 2009)
