Ladies Hats

Ladies Hats and Shoes

When the Stock Market crashed in 1929, the Flapper Days were over.  In 1933 the French beret style came into fashion like a storm.  When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the United States went to war and fashion was rationed like everything else.

After the war, a new look came in the form of Chritian Dior and hats were large brimmed that matched the fullness of the skirts.

When Jackie Kennedy became First Lady of the United States in 1961, she wore “pillbox hats” and many women copied her style.

So, do you have a hat hanging out in your closet that belonged to your Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother or perhaps your Dad, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, an Uncle, Brother or Cousin?

What condition is it in?

Do you want to preserve it for future generations?
