Does anyone here on tPF still use one? Aside from church or formal occasions, I just wanna know if any lady today would still keep a fan in her purse to keep cool

I still use them when I'm on the beach to ward off the mosquitoes and to cool myself down.

I love fans and I always carry one in my purse, more so now that I get hot a lot (pre menopause, ouch!). It really helps me.

I'm also a collector.

Nope,

but I do own a fabulous silk painted fan from spain with lace fringes... the ones used by the flamingo dancers with the tap shoes & the castanets you know... sent by a penpal from spain when I was in my teens.

I have a small collection of fans but they were all in SG... should be in the junkyard by now though.

I used to have this pretty fan my revatives brought from Cuba...but it broke! Now I'm hunting for one. But like no store in the city has silk ones, only paper.

I do! I live in an insanely humid tropical city, and a hand fan is a survival tool! I always keep my loewe silk fan in my B.
