I collect hats in general, especially newsboy hats. I also love fedoras, bucket hats, and berets. I was actually known as ‘hat girl’ in high school and college. I wanted to wear a hat at my wedding, but honestly, it would have been impossible to find something to match.

I also collect Monkees memorabilia. I even have a Monkees lunchbox. Also, I love anything dealing with monkeys or frogs, my favorite animals. I have several monkey stuffed animals and actually named some after The Monkees. Smile

That’s an awesome collection!  They’ll be really fun to look for.  My parents used to love to collect antiques.  Their favorite thing to collect was lighters (which is strange cuz neither one of them smoke).  I swear I spent hours on the weekend looking at what I thought was CRAP.  Now I love it too.  I just don’t have any room to store things so I don’t collect.  But, I do collect hot sauces.  That’s way more strange than hats, no?  Lol.  I get one everywhere I go.  I plan to display them someday.

I used to collect vintage perfume bottles. I love hats, but look assinine in most of them so that collection is out, hehe. I guess I have an unofficial collection of Beatles memorabilia, because that’s all anyone gets me for my birthday, Christmas, etc.

I love vintage hats too!  My mom and I share a collection of them!  I just had a summer “holiday” in Ireland, and got to see a wedding.  The wedding guests wore the sweetest hats, flowers, and feather fancies in their hair!

@jamiemichelle: That hat is amazing!  If I found that hat, I’d probably start a collection too!  Seriously, a vintage hat collection is very cool.

Awesome! I accidentally started to collect umbrellas and parasols, haha. We are prepared for all weather and all times! 🙂
