I had a fit over this purchase. Yesterday here on Cape Cod, it was garage sale and flea market mayhem! We had a flea market at the historical society which happens once a year. I found this little hat and it’s hat box, for $1.00. I can’t think that this is anything other than something made to promote this line of hats.
Box measures 4 x 4.
It’s the DOBBS hat!
Made of plastic and given a “felt like” finish. I photographed the actual hat in the palm of my hand so everyone could see just how tiny the actual hat is. One of my favorite purchases of the day!
I LOVE THIS. So adorable I can’t stand it.
Salesman sample? maybe?
Oooh Lisa, you could very well be right. Mmmmm. I love when I find stuff like this for a buck!
GREAT POST!!!… This is wonderful…and it’s RED!!!…sweet
They are “Gift Certificates”… When you paid for the hat, the hat store would give you the gift certificate w/the minature hat and hat box to give as a gift. The recipient could then go in and try on and pick out a great hat.
They are a great collectible, they did the same thing w/shoes you would receive a minature pair of shoes in a shoe box!!!..
K2 – THank you so much for this fabulous information! Makes me love it even more. I often buy things and don’t know much about the item. That is why awmok can be a real trip, I find out so much about my own collectables here!
It’s a great find…at an unbelievable price!! My husband has collected them for a long time. They even offered them for a “Top Hat”..w/box!!
Would love to see some of your husband’s collection.
