New at Couture Allure - Fabulous Vintage Hats!

We have recently acquired a large collection of fabulous hats from the estate of Mrs. F. E. Plankenhorn of Williamsport, PA.  Mrs. Plankenhorn's husband was the owner of the Penn Garment Co. and Plankenhorn Braid Works.  As the wife of a man in the fashion business, it was Mrs. Plankenhorn's job to look stylish at all times.  Her hat collection reflects this and over the next couple of weeks, we'll be offering her marvelous hats here at Couture Allure.
