Why details matter......the beauty of old things
So a delivery was made this a.m., and I couldn't be more thrilled! In a previous post I had mentioned my search for a hat case, not to be confused with a hat box....got plenty of those!
Well, it came today and it's simply stunning. I've been pouring over it's details this morning.
The leather outside, the incomparable fabric lining (wish I had a never-ending bolt of this fabric, it's the prettiest I've ever seen!), the rusty latches, and the center part that snaps off to keep your hats in place.
It really is the details that set these old things apart, and the beauty. Can you imagine walking into a store these days and finding an item for sale like this hat case?
I'll have fun finding room for it in my studio (wish me luck, hahaha!) so it can house some special linens and lace
