I LOVE MILLINERY HATS!!! MY HAPPY FIND!!
On Saturday, I had to take my Son, Ryan to a play/vocal rehearsal.. I usually
spend my mornings on Saturday going to Yard sales with my friend Robin. I decided
to drive around while waiting for him to look for some good sales... It was later so, I
thought most of the yard sales would be done with.. Around here, 7:00 am is the starting
time for most yard sales and ending time is about 11:00 or 12:00 noon.. Most of the
good stuff is gone by 9:00 am.. I happened upon my first sale and I noticed a big box
and I looked inside and it was full of Millinery Hats... The lady selling them said to me,
"Please, take them all." She told me they belonged to a sweet lady who had passed on.
I asked, "How much"? She said "You can have the entire box for $5.00....!!!!
To say the least I was jumping inside with joy!!! Most hats that I have gotten
have been at antique shops. I am lucky to have paid $18.00 for the cheapest hat... Now,
they had lost some of their netting etc.. but, I didn't care.. I can now use the Millinery
flowers and vintage buckles and stuff.. The rest I will put around my door in the ART
ROOM.... I was a pretty lucky girl that day and happy to have only spent $5.00 for
