For September Faves, I chose a subject matter of interest to me -- Hats and Hat Boxes.
September 15th is known as Make A Hat Day. Although the idea of "making a hat" on this particular day was probably created to be a fun school event, the art of hat making dates back to the 18th century and possibly further. A milliner is a "vendor of fancy wares" especially those made in Milan, Italy and means "one who sells women's hats". I will admit that I have a fascination with vintage hats and found reading about the history of women's hat most interesting.
Rather than giving you an in-depth history on the subject, I would like to feature a few of my favorite listings as my September Faves.
Vintage Stetson Hat Box featured at OldStoneFarmhouse
Vintage Veil Hat featured at SobellsBoutique
Vintage-Style Newsboy Hat featured at HeadcoversUnlimited
Handmade Yoda Hat featured at TheTwistedK
And for my final choice, let me tell you about a hat box that I will be listing at 2aEmporium very soon. The listing will feature two stackable hat boxes and a complementary resin stiletto heel with wired note holders. These are not vintage, but would make great home decor accents or could be used as photo props. Look for them soon in my DIY Collection.
