this months getrödelt, gefunden, gefreut i like to shoe you my favourite flea market from last month. in early october my man and i went home to the middle of germany for a wedding of dear friends. around the wedding and meeting friends and family we planned to go to three flea markets in this area.
on fridays we went to a flea market in wiesbaden, which turned out as pricey as i expected, because this is a quite whealthy town and vendors were selling mostly antiques. ... but i snapped up some 50s fashion magazines (not cheap), a vintage wedding card (!) and .... drum roll ... this wonderful vintage hat for 10€!!!! the lady sold it as a 40s piece but i suppose, it is more early to mid 50s. dating this hat is pretty confusing to me ... the decoration on top, let's call them wings, i have seen on several 40s hats, but the actual hat looked different and the way it wants to sit on your hat reminds me more on the early 50s. (it even looks a little 30s on the pictures because the mannequin's head is super tiny).
any ideas from which era it might be exactly?!
anyhow ... this fabulous hat is in a unbelievably great condition. no moths bites, no dens and the feather is still there!
the sad thing about it is ... it seems to be a wee bit too small for my big head and i have the feeling it's not my kind of style. i don't feel as beautiful as i should when i put it on ... but one day, with a special hairdo i will take it out for a walk. for sure!
let's check out what all the others have found on .... getrödelt, gefunden, gefreut
