This hat has become one of my favorites. It is not a reproduction, but actually from the 1940's, with the price tag and vendor tag still attached. Instead of removing the tags, I tuck them underneath to show people who admire the hat! (So long as I don't look like Minnie Pearl.) I like the small size because it does not overwhelm my head. Will buy more from this friendly seller...
Gem's Vintage Gems...that says it all!
When I think way back, I remember even as a kid I loved poking around in my dad's workshop in the basement. Old stuff everywhere, rings of ancient keys hanging from beams in the roof, and big old bass drum from a 1930's high school marching band under the stairs, a coffee mill, tools.....And the hay loft over the horse stables (then my grandparents' garage) yielded another treasure trove. A wheel of fortune from a carnival, a screwing piano stool, bottles galore. I loved the time travel quality of handling old things. Somewhere along the line, the passion became vintage art, furniture, hats and jewelry. Once you get the collecting bug, it is a short jump to opening a shop to share the love!
At Gem's Vintage Gems, you'll find the fabulous style and panache of vintage hats from the 30's-60's, as well as an eclectic collection of jewelry from the 20's-80's, with a special love for 70's Asian-inspired pieces. Come on in and enjoy browsing my collection of jewelry by designers including Selro, Florenza, ART, Vendome, Castlecliff, Kenneth Lane, Weiss, Trifari, Coro, Har, Hobe, Goldette as well as vintage hats from designers Evelyn Varon, Norman Paulvin, Mr. John, Norman Durand and more. (Oh, for the days when a woman didn't leave the house without a hat!)
A distinctive and unique vintage piece elevates an outfit into the sensational! From classic to edgy, I'm sure you'll find the perfect finishing touch, or a great addition to your collection, at Gem's Vintage Gems.
