Thanks Paul for letting me have the "Bully Buy" of the month.
I'd like for all to know that these are the same fine straw bonnets that sold for $165 at the Ladies and Gentlemens Conference in Harrisburg last year.
I have 5 or 6 is stock as well as 3 silk bonnets that I will include in this Bully Buy.
You can see 2 varieties of straw at the site below:

The link you posted doesn't work for me. It says I need a passport account. Do you have a different link to your bonnets?

OH, Dear...sorry about that. I'm not too familiar with that MSN photo link...
I have photos of all the bonnets available and can send them to you.
In the mean time I think Paul is trying to post some photos.

WELL That man's a mind reader, LOL (is he married?)
The photos of examples of my straw bonnets is posted above.
I don't have the brown one any longer but have several natural straws trimmed in various colors plus 2 red straws.
If you covet a red bonnet but can't afford to have it be your only bonnet, now is the time to get one :D as a second bonnet. By the way, take a good look at the colors in your wardrobe...and remember things not have to "match"....If you have lots of blues, browns, and greens....Red would be a great compliment as a bonnet...

Have you sold all of your bonnets in the Bully Buy? If not, I am quite interested. I absolutely love your work and appreciate your yesteryear name as well. I was named for my dad's mother, Vivian.
I too was unable to access the link on MSN -
I'm also interested in your sill parasols.

Although August is past, I still have 3 straw bonnets remaining that I will sell for the August price :D there is a Red Straw trimmed in roses with gray/ivory striped strings, a fancy straw weave with great chartrues/magenta strings and bow trim and a sheer streaw with yellow check strings and multi floral trim.
