Hats Off (Or should I say on?) to Ogden's Acorn Antique Dealers - Nov 2011

While hanging out at the Acorn Antique Show in Ogden this past weekend I noticed, and not for the first time, the dealers who snaz it up a bit by wearing period hats.  This gent looked so much like a Britisher in his top hat I thought he could have walked off the set for Mary Poppins.  In talking to him later he said his family lines are Cornish ...
Here are some more dealers who wore hats the first day of the show.  The couple on the left is from Eden, and sell great retro stuff.  The sweet lady on the right has a lovely English Accent and sells Jewelry and Victorian smalls, you can even get a British Half Penny in her booth and its hard to get smaller than that!

In the group of dealers above are some of the several dealers who wear baseball caps and cowboy hats.  Alice decided she was worth keeping one of the mink hats she had for sale. The lady on the right, donned a bowler that was for sale in her booth for my temporary hat fetish, which gave me the idea ....
to annoy good friends and other dealers by asking them to don some of the hats they had for sell.  See what good sports antique dealers are? 

And last of all it was time to convince CJ of Sock Monkeying Around in Ogden that this photo journal would not be complete without a picture of her in one of her Sock Monkey Knit hats.  Of course it wasn't hard to get Rusty of Vine street Antiques in Salt Lake on board, Rusty is always a good sport and is NEVER afraid of having fun!!

And in the end, it would be hardly fair to ask others to look a little silly without being willing to do so as well.  So here I am with my antique show partner Bruce sporting a bit of antique haberdashery.
You can join us at the next Acorn Show in February (18th and 19th) for another edition of our hat parade ... someone may have even take their Easter Bonnet out of mothballs a bit early .... It could happen, and you wouldn't want to miss that, would you?!
