Three Vintage Hats and the American Duchess Boutique
October 25, 2010
Hello historically inspired ladies! I thought you might be interested in three vintage hats I’ve listed in the new and improved American Duchess Boutique on Etsy. Here they are (click the photos)):
1950s velvet and satin perching hat with veil and rhinestone brooch, PERFECT condition. $55
1950s navy blue velvet perching hat, with cut velvet trim and blue veil. $30
1960s Joseph Magnin shaped straw cloche style hat. $25
I’ve decided to charge head on into developing The Boutique in terms of adding items that will appeal to “Rococo Girls” like us – vintage teacups and saucers, crafty kits, hats, my own costume pieces and screenprinted t-shirts, vintage clothing, bits and bobs, lovely things I find out on shopping excursion. I kicked it off today with re-shooting the American Duchess t-shirt collection and updating the Etsy listings, for a more cohesive and professional look. I photographed the hats at the same time, and will continue to add items as I find them! Also on the docket are embroidery patterns, embroidered caul and cap kits, eBooks, cockade kits, who knows what else!
And finally, I can’t believe this, but two of my jacket designs that I uploaded to a website called Garmz.com, about 2 weekends ago, are in the top voted spots! “October Foxhunt” is #1 out of everybody else on the site, and “Raindrops” is #3! I think this means that the jacket will go into production, be proto-typed, then made “for real,” in all sizes, and sold in Europe. I am utterly stunned and incredibly excited! Thank you ALL for your support and your votes and your love!!!
