October 2022

Leaves are falling. Temperatures are dropping here in Western Maryland. And we are busy working on your historical hats!
Please note that the cut-off for Christmas orders is October 17.
Most hat styles we offer can be made in wool felt or fur felt.
As always, if you do not see what you want or need, contact us (see below for email and phone).
Thanks for your interest and your patronage. This continues to be a labor of love.
