I was tickled over the weekend to get a Trade Request from Etsy Seller Diane, from Fashion Renovation.
She was interested in this cloche in My Etsy Shop:

After a look-see in her shop, I traded her the hat for these goodies:
I love to use these awesome vintage enameled trays while I am working. They keep everything close at hand.
I have plans for this sweet hat. Going to do some “Millinery Archaeology” and rework the sweatband and trim.
I have a plan in the works for a line of upcycled vintage hats. Have been working on a few and they are fun. This one is a sweet honey. Can’t wait to have a crack at it.
It’s also a great way to hone my skillsets by un-working at hat and seeing how it is made in the first place. Invaluable information.

Trading on Etsy has been one of the unexpected delights of the whole experience.
It is so much fun to have this type of interaction with like-minded people.
Meet-barter-play. It is a currency that is fresh and so new. But as old as time.
And it already came in the mail! Thanks again, Diane. Great trade!
