Where did you get that hat?

 I took this photo with my phone before I realised that I wasn't supposed to.

We went to an auction last Friday.  The viewing was very short so we spent the remainder of the morning at the shop museum.  It was very interesting.  The museum was started from a private collection  that became too large. If ever you're in Charente Maritime it is well worth a visit.

We bought a very interesting album at the auction as well as some other cards.  No doubt I'll be putting some of them up on my postcard blog, Time and Oft

Two more auctions to come before the end of the year.

All those lives and stories worn under those hats. I love the red cloche - that surely couldn't have been too old though the style is old. I can see why you took the pic - a still life in hats and artefacts.

Quite an assortment of hats Anji. It must have been interesting viewing them. Take care.

Doris: I'm glad you like the red, that means i can have the pink one. We've discovered, since starting our postcard business, that sometimes stock left over from shops is sometimes hidden away for years - treasure!

Judy:I think you would enjoy it too. If ever you come to France...!
