    Attention Denverites

    Just wanted to give a heads up. I was out and about today and stopped in to the Antique Exchange at Broadway and Florida. Judy has a good-condition Cavanaugh in a 7 3/8 Extra Long Oval for $42. It's not in excellant condition, a few stains on the ribbon, but it is in pretty decent shape. I'm...

    Funny Story from this past weekend

    So? Is it a sin...

    To be wearing a vintage Stetson in the rain? Now honestly, that's why I buy a hat...to keep the rain and snow and sun off my face. But will I be persecuted for getting a nice vintage hat wet? Your thoughts please..and quickly...it's raining here and I have to leave work soon! JCBurns

    My small collection

    Well, today I went to my favorite Antique store and picked up 3 more hats and it occurred to me that I seem to have a very bad addiction going here. Now some of you may remember that I first came on here back in March after having purchased 4 rather nice hats. At the time, I had only a few...

    Wow, maybe they are starting to get it!

    Well, I found this on the Askmen.com website in their fashion area under "Clothes Big Boys Don’t Wear" article...... "To a female, baseball caps signify an adolescent attitude, so if you’re attempting to attract a woman of legal age, forgo the cap in favor of more fashionable headgear or...

    New Project Panama....finished

    A number of you saw this Panama that I bought a while back that appeared to have been originally a Ladies hat. Here is what I've done to it. I wasn't able to find black ribbon so I went a different direction. :) If you look closely, you will see some discoloration just...

    New Project Panama

    Well, I finally found what I've been searching the antique shops for...a Panama! Ok, I'll just pretend it's a real Panama, not sure I believe that label. Now granted, it was in the womens section and it obviously was sold as a woman's hat, but I don't see why with a new ribbon treatment and...

    Old Hat hygiene

    Ok, so after my purchase of a few decent used hats, someone at work asked me about the cleanliness of them. Good question! When you guys purchase a used hat, is there anything you do to "sanitize" it. They of course mentioned head lice, something I hadn't even thought about. (Can you tell...

    Denver Hat repair?

    Can anyone tell me if there is a place that can do cleaning and/or repair on a hat in the Denver, CO area? I've looked around a bit, but I haven't been able to find anything. Or perhaps, someone could tell me of a good place to send a hat to for repair? Thanks JCBurns

    New Member and new hats

    Well, allow me to introduce myself. I live in Denver, CO and unlike any of my friends, I have worn a hat for years, however it has mostly been a cheap Flex-Felt from Wally World or wherever I could find one. I bought a cheap Fedora from (shudder) Burlington this past year and I've liked...
