I'll see you there.
I don't know if this is the proper forum for inviting everyone in the SoCal area to the Vintage Expo but if you are interested in hats it would be a great experience. It's held at the Santa Monica Civic Center on Saturday and Sunday with a ticket being good for both days. I'm leaving early in the morning for the travel day & hope to see everyone there again. BTW..there are some pretty nice cocktail lounges close by....not that I have partaken..umm
Joseph, please take a few pictures if you can. I'd love to see what one of those things are like. Unfortunately, we don't have vintage expos around here.Originally posted by Matt Deckard

Had a fun time at the vintage Expo.
Met with Art and bought a hat from him. and sold some of my own hats to him.
I also picked up a cool palm tree tie and a handkerchief.
My friend Becca found a 40's wedding dress for her upcoming ceremony.
Pictures are on the way.
Didn't per chance buy a Stetson WIDE OVAL gray hat in 7 3/8?!?!??!?
I had planned to ship the hat to MK, but after consulting with Art, (he's met MK) we decided it was too big. Wide Oval on me allows me to stick an index finger on each side of the sweatband while it's on my head...kinda like a hat on sideways...just an exageration...
Good! I'd also love to hear a post on another topic regarding suits and other vintage stuff.
Glad you had fun. I plan on going to the one in SF I believe in March...

If all goes as planned my wife and I will be there too Andy. We will try and visit Arts shop on Monday morning before we head back to Oregon.
Nope, it was a rough fur Dobbs in brown with a wind string.Didn't per chance buy a Stetson WIDE OVAL gray hat in 7 3/8?!?!??!?
I also picked up a fur felt ladies hat from the 40's that one of the vendors had on display. Navy blue with a wide brim and the name of a store in france where it was bought. Something for the future wife.
It was a pleasure doing business with you Matt, I had a great time at the show which was added to when I turned around and saw MK looking at my hats!!! He returned early to be there and I am sure was very successful. A few other "Loungers" attended also and was a blast.
Always a pleasure to meet a fellow "lounger". To be honest Art, getting that hat is a curse. Chamorro will not leave me alone... He's trying to get that hat any way possible! Until next time.
