PhotoHunt - Hats 01-17-09



This week's PhotoHunt assignment: HATS. I knew right where to go for this assignment: our neighborhood hippie-grunge-vintage-avant-garde-retro resale shop. I went a little crazy with the photos - so many fun hats and displays! - and was just about to take a couple of final shots when the manager informed me I was not allowed to take photos in there. Oops.

I especially like that this jaunty hat and elegant gloves
were teamed up with a bowling ball bag.














Not sure of the significance of the marshmallowy thing in the eye...

Your neighborhood resale shop seems fun! I love all the pictures. The shoes in the first picture is great, at least for retro parties. :)

I've run into similar photo taking problems in stores and at fairs. I think they're being a little over protective if you ask me!

I'm glad you were able to take a few photos before being chastised. :>) My Grandmother would have loved that first blue number.

Stop by and see my photo hunt if you have time.

That 2nd photo made me burst out laughing.

I'm not a hat person, but I found 'hats' around our home that will work for the hunt. Come on over if you can. I would love to have your company.

I love it! Matching hat, gloves and bowling ball bag. Just what every well-dressed woman needs. The other photos are great as well. That looks like an interesting shop.

By the way, over at my blog I'm starting a new photo-meme for Sundays based on my Sunday Scenery posts. The details can be found on the Sunday Scenery Photo Meme page on my blog. I hope you'll consider joining the fun.

Most of the time I'm too shy to take pictures inside of shops, I find it very embarrassing if they come up to you to tell you you can't take pictures!!! But I love yours!!

Well, at least he let you keep the photos! I like the wild blue one in the first photo.

I did Photo Hunters today, too! Hope you get a chance to visit.
