I do so love Vtg. Hat containers..
I am always on the look out for them..
Here a few of mine...

My most recent find...


and some others in my stash.

a tapestry fabric one..

shiney red patent leather one..

pebble texture blue one.

my black patent leather one is a little sad,, as the zipper is missing some teeth,, so I have to be careful when zipping it.. but I actually bought it because it had a customs tag on it...

I do have more, smaller ones,, but they are tucked away... and I am to lazy to trudge out in the snow to the barn and dig through the containers.. lol!

Anyone else have a hat box addiction???

I love my hat boxes but I can't leave them out or they become cat boxes.

OMG, started about hat boxes and morphed. Mona Lisa has us laughing so hard.

I love hat boxes, too. Not as much as my best friend. She collects them. She loves them, hats too, and she looks great in hats. I have a couple of hat boxes. I am more into the luggage and train cases. Lord help me if I get another train case. I love them so! I use one as my knitting bag.

Grace, that would be so neat! Maybe instead you can make up an elaborate story for it! Have it travel to places you love or have always wanted to go. And create the lovely lady ho owned it. I bet she had beautiful dresses to match her hats!

Krista,, I know, Right? I would love to know where it traveled to, was it on a Steam Liner or a plane or Train..?????

Lovely hat boxes Grace! I like the idea of using them for other storage. And itís neat to see the customs tag. Makes me curious where that box has traveled.

not to mention for travel....
I find them whimsical and a great way to store vtg gloves and crochet neck collars...

Those hat boxes are such fun!! Back in the day when ladies wore hats everywhere, they were a must have for storage.

Kathy, I use to live in Ft. Riley, on Base, mom took us shopping in Junction City and Ogden... Loved the old Woolworth store and lunch counter..
Do you by chance remember a little 'Hamburger/Fried Chicken' place, it was kind of like a McDonalds & Kentucky Fried Chicken combined.. wish I could remember the name of it.. There also was a little building, about 8'x8',, and you could drive up or walk up to the window and buy pies,, mini pies and regular sized pies... wish I could remember the name of it..
I am guessing neither are around anymore..

My mom and I used to shop in Topeka at a little hat shop. In fact, my dad, mom, and I always went there for our hats in the Spring and Fall, anyway one of our trips there I found a patent leather Sailor and it came with a matching hatbox. Too bad that hats are no longer in style. They added a touch of elegance to an outfit. Kathy
