    I’d be upset if that happened to me. That’s not cool!

    I’m also on your side when it comes to “things” and “stuff.” No matter how nice they are they are all inanimate objects and not important in the big picture. People: family and friends, that’s what it’s all about. I’ve also found that money spent on an experience (a trip, etc.) that creates a great memory brings me much more happiness than any material possession. I like hats, but I wouldn’t trade a friendship for any of them. I hope you have better experiences here in the future.

    I read you. Many people would be surprised as to whom it was, but unlike him, I'm a gentleman.:)

  5. Yes, this is true. There are a few members here that like to "alert" each other. And for a couple in particular where we wear the same or close to the same size, we will often share how much we will go for the hat....the lesser bidder backing out so as to not drive the price up on the one willing to spend more.....though I must say ......lately....the hats have been going for much more than either of our maximums.:eek::eek::eek::eek::(:(:(:(
    Thanks to those that share the wealth!!!!!!!!!!

    Amen! I don't know what happened but it seems the last 6 months or so vintage hat prices have gone up 50% or more.

    I’ve been shocked at some of the prices recently, but I think these things ebb and flow. At the larger sizes the better hats always go for a lot. :(

    I just won a dusty, older Stetson bowler for $8.99!
    According to the seller it's even in my size. I can't wait to see what I've got.

    I don't know if I should list this or not as I've yet to pull the trigger but for only $149.95 (plus shipping) this 1950s Royal Stetson Whippet can be mine, all mine.
    It has that Cat In A Hat/guitar pick thing going for it...

    It also has that ‘it ain’t a Whippet’ look to it.

    Always enjoy that. And @SteveFord should stay away from anything like these, especially in 7 1/4. I hear there are some forgeries around.
