Most people think of "Ladies Hats" when "Vintage Millinery" is mentioned... ~ I on the other hand think of the delicate flower trim pieces used in this hat making process... I have found these precious little flower adornments to add "just the right touch of sweetness" to items such as: statues... shadow boxes... doll pin cushions... jean jackets , sweaters... etc. When I was at "Warrenton, Texas" this past Fall, I bought up a ton of this old millinery in a booth near Zapp Hall... I have found great delight adorning this that and the other... See for yourself! Some of this old millinery still retains it's delicate paper tags ~ made in Japan... There are all shapes and sizes, some with original pin backs still attached... (For better detail - click on pics to enlarge!)
