MY FOREIGN HATS AND HEAD-WEAR COLLECTION

MY FOREIGN HATS AND HEAD-WEAR COLLECTION
DOLL C.1936
Over the last few years I have been collecting foreign hats and head-wear items.  Some of them I have bought on my travels, others I have found in charity shops and other places.  I have always had a fascination for them so I thought I would share them with you on this page.
