Unashamedly plugging an item I've got listed on eBay!
at a reduced SALE PRICE!!
(I don't pimp my stock very often,
so I hope you'll forgive me!)
Ages ago we cleared the store rooms behind an old shop
that had originally been a drapers and millinery emporium
and found, wrapped in brown paper tied with string,
a pile of these old cardboad advertising placards for
The Nimbus Patent Hat Retainer.
They sold successfully and I thought they'd all gone
until tidying out my own stockroom last week,
I found 8 remaining that I'd put to one side
because the corners were slightly scuffed.
I've listed them on eBay this week with a reduced
buy-it-now selling price of just £6.95 + postage
Really quite quirky- I've never seen a hat retainer
and would love to hear from you if you have one
in your collection-
they date circa 1930s and are true Vintage Originals!
