It's the Odile

More photos from the hat factory in Septfond...but these were the pieces that were too dear to Guy's heart - he couldn't part with the old stamps - each used to stamp the name of a particular hat. I think Rebecca might have convinced Guy to sell the number stamps - used for marking the size of the hat. The sizes weren't as important to him - but the names - ah yes, the names.

"What are you wearing?"
"It's the Odile"
"I love it!"

Oh the hat factory! I have been dreaming about visiting here ever since your first post. Wonderful photos of this magical place!
I'll wear the Margot!

This is a place of dreams. My Grandmother's name was Lucile. I don't often see it spelled with just one 'L'. Thanks for sharing, I hope you continue to show us more. Bliss~

I wanted those beautiful name stamps so badly! But Guy was so sweet and sentimental, I didn't press him; instead, I hugged him...our friend, King of the Chapeau! What a wonderful day! And yes, I do have a cache of fabulous number stamps and I treasure them!

I love the name Margot! How sweet and worn those stamps are. He named his hats like they name purses and handbags.
