A Lucky Find: Vintage Beret Labels

A very lucky find on Ebay this morning: a collection of old beret labels I have never seen before.
Beret aficionados know how many beautiful labels there are (or were in times gone) and I must have close to 300 different models in my collection now.
And yes, sometimes I find a whole lot that I have never seen, in real life or published.
Some are true works of art in their own right; often depicting beret wearers with a nice sense of humour, showing rain, turned up umbrellas (to prove impermeability and the superiority of a beret over an umbrella) and always a happy face.

  1. You need to write and publish a picture book of all these labels. You're the man for the job!
