I can never resist vintage millinery!

Perhaps it's because we had a true haberdasher in the family... I just can't resist vintage millinery! 

Whenever I go thrifting or antiquing, the first items I look for are inevitably vintage trims, linens and millinery flowers.  Then I look for vintage rhinestones! ;)

This roll of vintage French ribbon is my latest favorite.  Is it OK to love old trims so much?

When I spot them all color-coordinated, that makes them all the harder to resist!

All the beauties in this post have been listed in my etsy shop.  (The vintage French ribbon on the roll is sold by the yard.)  Perhaps I'll be a real haberdasher some day after I find myself in an "empty nest" (but I don't want to go there yet)!
Happy Monday!


  1. Look at this memo board with it's red ribbon!

  2. I think it is perfectly acceptable to hyperventilate over beautiful vintage millinery! Oh wait, maybe that's just me...regardless, you are so lucky to live in such a lovely area. Spent a few years in Boston and dearly loved the Cape! Now I am in landlocked Colorado and miss the ocean terribly. Oh well, c'est la vie! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comment.
