I had to drive hubby to the Ortho doctor yesterday,, so I dropped him off and went a couple blocks down the road to a Thrift...
Knowing I only had about 10-15min before going back to the doctors office, I dashed in and headed down my favorite isle,,, and OMGeepers! right out the shoot, look what I found!!!
A vtg. hat box...


I already have several,, but,, I can never have enough!
A double Decker carrier... in great shape.. and are you ready,,,just
$3.99.... Doing the Happy Dance!!!
the label reads: EverBest,, Hollywood, Florida...

Wowee Kazowee Katmon, what an awesome find. When I come to Spokane, you have to take me thrift store shopping . . . will the day ever come when we can safely travel to see friends again ??

Hey Grace, what do you do with these vintage hat boxes? This one looks brand new! Whenever it is safe to fly again, I will need to have Delta bring me out to Spokane to join the MJF thrift store shopping spree!! LOL!! I have made this trek to Spokane 3 times and it takes all day because of 3 different segments so give a a days lead on getting there!! LOL!!!

Winnie, I actually do store my vtg hats in them along with some lavender sachet in the hat boxes...
This one is in great shape except for the little drop of paint at the bottom.. Who knows how the paint got on it...

Krista,, the fact that I dashed in and immediately found that hat box is thrilling... and rarely do I get out of a Thrift for under $4
