In response to Hat Pins, written by AnneM on October 09, 1997 at 13:44:31
] ] I have seen hat pins the size of a nice stilletto (the knife not the heel).
] Me too. My mom had some 5 inches long. (and they were from the 1950's):-)
I would think that the big hairdo's of the early part of this century would have required long hat pins. The pins have to go in one side of the hat and out the other grabbing onto hair along the way in order to work. The bigger the hat/hair the bigger the pin.
