    Byrnie Utz is liquidating its inventory this Feb 8th & 9th @ the Old Rainier Brewery in Seattle. Hats will be 50% off (possibly even more depending on turn out of the sale). Old hat boxes and memorabilia from the store will also be up for sale.

    I signed up for this website so I could let y’all know the sale is going on. Is there anywhere else that I could post this to let any Byrnie fans know?

    There’s an event on Facebook outlining all the details of the sale.

    I moved your post and made this a sticky for the time being.

    I've lived in and around Seattle all my life. How did I not know of this Golden era hat shop?
    Been wearing hats more often since going bald.
    I'll have to stop by the sale.

    The store closed a year ago so I think this will be truly a 'garage sale' of leftovers. From the pics it looks to be a great source for boxes. I live up the I5, 2 hours or so....tempting but not enough to spend the time/money on hat boxes......enticing as they are.

    If I lived 1-2 hours away, I'd be tempted to see what kind of historical tchochkes they might have.

    I am sorely tempted but I have an engagement with a buddy and I am loathe to break it. I hate the 'better offer' type of friendships/commitment having dropped 'friends' that were inclined to accept engagements and then cancel when something else came up. I named them my 'better offer friends' and they soon became ex. But still a car load of new hat boxes is tempting.

    If you attend and find someone there who might know a little history, I'd love information on the connection between the Seattle Utz and the Medford Utz. I called to ask but the store had already closed.

    Art Fawcett may know something as Medford is just down the road from Art in Central Point OR

    Alan not to hijack this thread but here is what I came across.

    And being an avid ancestry junkie....I found this in the 1910 census.
    It would seem they were brothers.

    Fantastic info, Rusty. This may explain why they set up in Washington state.
    In hardscrabble New York, they were probably tired of being called “the Yutz Boys...”

    Submitted in the most respectful intent, of course.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg Went to the 75% off sale. Got there hour after opening and waited about hour. Gave me something to do on a Satuday morning.
    Saw lots of fine hats, lots of folks coming out with five hats, buy 4 get the fifth free.

    Grrrr....... just now seeing this. Only 1.5 hrs away, so could have added nicely to the collection. Maybe they will do another for the items they didn't move on this sale.
