It was while living in rural Austria that Waltraud Reiner remembers her first hat.
Even though it belonged to traditional dress, it was considered “out there” because of it’s vibrant red colour.
But that wasn’t where she fell in love with hats. That happened years later in Australia.
What I love about meeting people from around the world with a love of vintage is the communities they belong to.
Sometimes those communities are online, via social media, they can be at yearly events and festivals or living right next door.
Wherever they are the community the develops around our vintage passions are strong and supportive and this weeks episode is a shining example of that!
