I bought this hat from a vintage shop that was closing a number of years ago. Everything in the store was marked down significantly. I went in to browse the sale and got a glimpse of this hat behind the counter. I asked to try it on. The owner said yes, but prefaced the "yes" with "This hat is tiny. In all the years I've owned it no one has ever been able to put it on." I know my own head....I know I have a small head (21 1/2" to be exact. Most people are 22-23"). I knew this hat would fit me. And it did.
She had it marked down from $99 to $40. She was so excited that it fit me she sold it to me for $21. I wore it all summer that year and it's one of my most prized vintage possessions.
