Looks like a fine old case. Nice ...
I stopped in an Antique Store today and of course was wearing a lid. I came accross this old book case and put my hat inside of it. I made the shop owner an offer and came home with my new display case for my Fedoras.
I couldn't see keeping them all boxed up, tucked away in my back room; I thought this was the perfect set up to show case my hats.
Still looking to play around with the arrangment; also need to make a wall rack above it for some other hats which I could not fit into the picture.
Whatcha guys think? Check it out....

Yeah, it fits well with fedoras. Looks great, and nice hats as well.
now you just need some light strips.....
Very nice! Another thing to be on the lookout for when I'm on the prowl for old hats (and fly rods).
Very nice indeed.
Pictures of My Colony of Fine Beavers. Now crafting my own "gentleman's city hats and westerns" of the finest quality. I do not do this as a business. Just a hobby for myself. Plus lots of needle felted items such as hats, blankets, feather displays, animals, and felt "paintings".
Great set-up, sir. Any plans for moth cedar strips inside?
