Wow- I kind of fell off of the face of the planet this week! I didn’t realize I haven’t posted in quite a bit. Oops? To make up for it, here’s a few pretty pictures of hats from the National Bella Hess Fall and Winter catalog of 1939-1940. I’ve been an an exceptional vintage hat kick lately, and making my mental wish list of hats I’d love to own someday. Hmm… a mustard yellow one, and a sporty little red straw breton, and one with loud feathers and a jaunty brim… the list goes on…. and all from around the same era as these scans, preferably! 1939 and 1940 were exceptional years for hats, in my opinion.
I know I posted this recently on my Facebook page, but I wanted to give you all a heads up that I’ve got a TON (probably about 200) vintage knitting magazines that date from the late 40s until the 1970s that will be making their way up to my Etsy store. Most date from the mid 50′s through mid 60′s. Keep an eye out if you like vintage knitting, and keep checking back ’cause it will take me a while to get through them all!
Hope you’re having a great week so far!
