PROGRESS PART DEUX
Still unpacking and sorting in the studio......
let's talk TIARAS. Can't have too many ! Sometimes I wore them cleaning house - ( in a ballgown......). I always had an assortment at the shop for that last minute birthday lunch
so far I have found eight.
The supply of vintage hats is endless
I've unpacked most of the wooden blocks so I can begin to prepare for the big clearence
they all need a bit of TLC
another of my favorite models
the taupe hat with ribbons was one made by Grandma - my aunt found it at Goodwill.
The studio is 15 x 28 and one end will be for all my hats and supplies. I LOVED making hats .... there is not a big demand for them these days - but I will always be prepared !
I haven't even begun to unpack the ribbons - they will make you weep. I have a fair stash of both new and vintage trims , some are even left from my mom and grandma.
I love this photo of Grandma - it was in the early sixties and this is the shop where I would decorate the windows with Genevieve.
I will do posts about Carolyn Hats some day soon - but on my other site - on the Verandah.
