Vintage Hat collection


                                           My dining table this week was filled with a hat collection that came from the home of a stylish woman the family simply called 'Auntie.'
                                              She had a different hat for nearly every week in the year
and here they all are clean and displayed ready for sale at the Woolloongabba Antique Centre
