Never discount an odd source Vietnam tour cowboy hats


Recommended Posts

So I went to the monthly Sacramento Antique Street Fair and scored some goods. On the way out of town, I hit the Golden Bear (featured on Diner's, Drive-Ins and Dives) and had a cold beer (I had worked pretty hard ;)) and the Fried Chicken sandwich -EXCELLENT by the way. As I sat there enjoying my meal, I could see this funky clothing store, Prevue Peekaboo Fashions, that I had passed over in the past. So to work off my meal, I strolled over to take a peak. They had a few uniforms, hats and shirts. BUT ... tucked up on a shelf I found these two gems. Vietnam Tour cowboy hats. One with yellow/black patches and one with red/black patches; THAILAND & U-TAPAO arc tabs.

 

Now I had one of these when I was a kid. My uncle did a tour in Thailand and brought me back one. Of course I grew out of it and then tried to take the patches off. I was successful with one and destroyed the other. These still don't fit my head, but they are piece of my childhood!

Gotta love the vintage shops.  Some of my best friends are vintage dealers ;) 

 

Picked up a WWI numbered red cross arm band for a song in one on Sunday, in fact. 

 

Love those cowboy hats, if they didn't take up so much space I'd keep more of them.  Nice finds!
