An occasional (when we're inspired!) blog from a group of vintage sellers who share the same philosophies, ethics, and love of and respect for vintage items, as well as nostalgia for the "good old days." We love to share our vintage finds, treasured memories, and stories of our favorite old-time stars of the stage, silver screen, and vinyl recordings. We hope you'll enjoy visiting us!

Hats Galore by Jeanne Tete
Little is know about the personal life of Jeanne Tete except she was born in Indianapolis and adopted the name Tete to give her design line a French flair.
By 1939 she was already known in New York and was designing for Bonwit-Teller. Later in 1940 it was noted in an ad for the San Antonio store Wolff & Marx that she designed expressly for that store. This information was provided by the Vintage Fashion Guild.
Her designs are always something special. Over the top embellishments for ladies who want to be noticed.
Below is two examples of her creations, available for sale at After Dark Vintage on ArtFire.
Here's some more exciting fashions from our group.....
