This blog on vintage style is dedicated to Madge Beals Meredith, my grandmother, who was a milliner before she married and settled into her lifelong roles of housewife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
Check out the Mississippi series covering my search for her 1917 hat shop in Scooba, Mississippi.
Pamela Hill Lappin is a writer on vintage style and the owner of MadgesHatbox.net, an online shop of vintage fashion.
Plus check out Madge’s newest shop, Madge @Home for vintage home goods
