First impressions are important, and luckily the one that I received when I first entered the warehouse was to a moderately high degree positive. I’ll introduce myself as the New Intern. I’ve taken up the task of blogging my adventure in this new realm of hats, millinery supplies, and trimming material. I won’t lie to you– I used to think hats were really only worn by those highfalutin women who stuck their pinkies up when they drank from any cup with a handle. But after scouring over hundreds of hats to be photographed for our coming fall/winter catalog, I’ve come to realize that hey! I was wrong.
In this warehouse, there are hats for casual occasions, hats for fancy occasions, hats for men, hats for brides, etc., etc., etc. Heck, there are even headpieces for people who don’t wear hats! Headbands, fascinators, veils, and more.
And of course, there are still hats left for the Ladies Who Stick Out Their Pinkies When They Drink.
But by plunging myself headfirst into this industry, not only have I learned that the trimming on a hat is usually removable, but also that there exists a great amalgam of hat types available for sale and people who truly love the accessory appreciate all shapes and sizes. There’s a hat for everyone, young and old. I’ve never even bought a hat before, but now I find myself looking longingly at the cozy winter hats that sit perched on the shelves in our warehouse. They somehow manage to make simple wool felt look cute. Or maybe you’ll find me picturing myself flaunting one of those beautiful derby fascinators. Can’t you just see yourself donning a feathered satin top hat and heading to church? When I visit other shops, I’ll wonder at their hat selection. There’s an impressive, diverse collection of hat styles out there. And no, it’s not political.
Let me know if I’ve left a positive first impression on YOU. 🙂
