Garage sale find !!

Vintage Top Hat 

Original hat box 

Original hand written script showing hat was purchased for $4.00 back then
This is why we love garage sales! because you walk away with a Vintage Top hat in excellent condition in original hat box. I squeaked when I saw this lying at the garage sale we stopped by last weekend. It was covered in a beautiful black velvet and lined in red silk. Not a scratch on the hat but can't say the same about the box. I still am keeping the box though as the print and text is so cool. D will make me a stand for the hat which will go on my showcase alongside the sconces.

The funny thing was the hat was purchased back then for $4.00 and that was the exact same price I paid some fifty years later.
