If you want to get ahead get a hat!

If friends want to describe me to others they invariably mention my penchant for exotic hats. I rarely leave the house without one set on my head at a jaunty angle. Thanks to e-bay I have been able to add to my growing collection of vintage millinery mainly from the 1940s and 1950s. The oldest hat in my collection has a black veil and silk flowers and dates from 1910. I somehow doubt I will look quite as good if I were to reach a 100 too.


  1. Fabulous hats .... I love the Boleyn one in particular.

    There is currently a 1920's wedding tiara on ebay which I happened to notice the other day.

  2. You have some beautiful hats! my personal favourite, it looks so good on you, is the third one from the bottom

  3. I love your site, it's fascinating. I have bookmarked it to peruse properly when BB has finished. Thank you so much,

  4. Wow Caro,

    they are are you

    Thank you...I am looking to start a business from home, and this has never occured to me before, but I do love hats of all sorts, so they say you should first have a love, and then your success is more probable...I now have something to keep me busy after BB.
