Although hats are part of the dress up chest, we keep them in the closet because there isn’t enough room for the hats in the actual chest itself. Like the dress up chest, I plan to keep adding to it as I go thrifting, and I’m always on the look out for hats and other costume-y additions.
Genuine Stetson, even. I guess it pays to have lots of cowboys in the area when you can find good-quality, child-sized cowboy hats at Goodwill. (Thrifted.)
Guess when I plan on telling the kids that if you press the fire department decal it makes all sorts of siren noises? Never! (Thrifted.)
A.k.a the Fancy Lady Hat. (Thrifted.)
Isobel loves to proclaim it is, “HAT TIME!” and then Anthony and I must follow her around while we each wear a safari hat. My life is never dull. (Thrifted–all three!)
Recently we added two new additions to the hat portion of the dress up chest: the fedora, from a yardsale, and the viking hat, which my husband earned by swimming through mud and jumping over open flames. With the exception of the viking hat, all of these hats are child’s sized, which I think is amazing. It’s like they were made for the dress up chest.
