Attack Of The Plastic Floral Hat

by Deanna aka Pop Tart

A vintage plastic hat — yes, entirely plastic! Even the inside — it’s like a weave of plastic! (The very sight of it made my head itch!) White plastic lily of the valley bells topped by green leaves, it even matches its nifty hatbox! Spotted at The Olde Store in Hales Corners, Wisconsin.
