Hats and Hits

Busy, busy, busy week.  My living area looks like a Project Runway work room with fabric and trim and costumes in various stages of finish all over the place.  I'm 90% finished with all three and now just working out the final details.   In between, went to an auction, and then hit Goodwill, Vintage Village and Curious Possessions.

It was an unique mix of finds with some great scores at my local Goodwill.

An auction win, this faboosh, vintage, aqua cabinet.  Very 1940-50s, it can be hung on the wall or placed on a table.  

Pretty, Victorian parlor chair is perfect for antique dollies.

An interesting auction win, Mother of Pearl (MOP) handles but it is the bone and bristle toothbrush that is the real queen of this hygiene set.  Antique tooth brushes are often found without the bristles but this one is intact.

From the auction I headed out to Snellville as I had lots of stops to make.  First stop, Vintage Village where I always find treasure.


Needed pearls for a Steam Punk costume for my granddaughter and I found three that will be perfect for her look.

Love antique treenware so I was delighted to find this large, treenware paddle.

Score!!!  Four gorgeous Beelek Christmas plates.  These are as light as can be and are beautifully translucent, the hallmark of Beelek.

Love hats.  Love feathers.  So a hat covered with feathers is a win win for me.  

From Vintage Village I stopped in Curious Possessions.

Sweet red embroidery on white cotton batiste with lace edge.  

A lovely Early American Pressed Glass (EAPG) compote, Stag and deer.  This is a keeper for my EAPG compote collection.

Another lovely EAPG item, Bee hive covered butter dish.  Trying to talk myself out of keeping it.

From Curious Possessions, I moved on to Goodwill.

I hit the mother lode of vintage hats.  Gorgeous, black feathered hat with lots of sass is a Mr. John.

How about this lovely black satin hat with rooster feathers that are rich in iridescence.

And my favorite and I'm keeping it.  A full cloche hat covered in the same iridescent rooster feathers. Be still my hat wearing heart.

Big black bow with gold studs.  Gorgeous.

Marvelous white beret with airy ostrich feathers around it.  Without a doubt, one of the best finds at my local Goodwill in a long time.

It's that time of year when gravy boats are king.  I like to use vintage vases for serving hot breadsticks.

 Another of my auction wins was that great, Indian Chief humidor.  I had forgotten to take a close up photo but it does look good next to the big, brown jug.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Can't believe that October is nearly over and we will be turning the clocks back. The shadows have gotten taller and the days are shorter, so blessings to you and those you love. Sea Witch
