A hat (in the) box

Scrolling through one of my favourite websites Marktplaats, I came across this leather thirties hat box. I really loved the lining and I decided to make an offer. When my offer was accepted, I discovered there was a hat to come with the box. Which is always a nice surprise of course.
I went to pick the hat box up and the people selling it were quite passionate about the set going to someone who'd cherish it. The box and the hat belonged to the mother of the lady selling it. She explained it was hard for her to let it go, but the fact that it went to someone who will treasure it as much as I do was a relief for her. Of course I will love and honour the box ánd hat, as I do all my vintage darlings. Do you have vintage items with beautiful romantic stories behind them?
