    I just back from a great little thrift shop in Reading OH (Just north of downtown Cincinnati), called "Talk of the Town."

    They had at least a dozen vintage hats, and at least half of them were in beautiful shape. Assorted Dobbs, Penney's, Borsolini, Stetsons and some other italian and english hats. Some really NICE stuff. Unfortunately, I walked away hatless. WHY? Because everything was too small for my big 7 3/8 long oval head! But my loss could be your gain, if any of you readers are in Cincy, and have a smaller head than mine. Check out "Talk of the Town" at the corner of Reading Rd and Vine St in Reading OH.

    Well, I'm out of luck; I'm also a 7 3/8.

    Are they reasonably priced?

    I'm a couple of hours away, but it might be worth a drive to check it out!

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Prices

    Prices weren't outrageous, but they weren't dirt cheap either. If I remember right prices were between $30-50 depending on the hat and it's condition.

    I spoke to the owner of the shop, and most were from estate sales. There were a number of well worn items that would take some work to salvage, and one or two in unworn condition, with original price-tags still in/on them.

    They also had a TON of hat vintage hat boxes, if anyone is interested...
