So Many Choices

Create your special look with the floppy hat and a unique hat band. These hats have three grips that form a bond with any of the hat band’s grips. The three grips make it easy to affix the band to the hat so it won’t shift and quick to remove for band care. And, the bands are interchangeable, so get a new look for the same hat simply by adorning it with a different hat band. Perfect for the hat lover who really wants a matching or coordinated look.

So Many Compliments

A lady purchased her floppy hat at the Turkey Creek Festival. It had a sparkly orange hat band and looked very nice on her. The next time I saw her, I recognized the hat as I spotted her wearing it at the Lenexa Spinach Festival. Because she gets so many compliments, she wears it everywhere. She and her daughter stopped to get some cards to make it easy to let everyone know where they can get a hat, too.

Looking Good on the Trip

She was certain her daughter-in-law would really like the hats and she was right. Shortly after that, the daughter-in-law came to check out the hats as she exclaimed, “Oh, look at the hats!” She initially tried on the smaller brim hats, but was drawn to the widest brim hat which looked so nice with her long, dark hair and bangs. She asked her husband for his thoughts on the brims and with a smile he said, “She looked nice in both, but she could really do with the bigger hat.” With the Orlando trip in a couple of weeks, she agreed that it would be better to get more shade from the floppy hat. It was the light colored hat band that she really wanted to complete the look. Press here for the big floppy hats in black, here for white and here for tan.

The excitement was building for her as she was thinking about her upcoming trip. She was definitely shopping with a purpose and the floppy hats caught her attention at the Edwardsville Days show. She quickly selected the black hat because it would match her black bathing suit that she had just gotten for the Mexico trip that she was heading out for next week. She wanted a way to draw attention to the hat without adding a new color. She knew she would really have several days that she could wear the hat and could not be certain what color that outfit might be. To be safe, definitely basic white for the hat band.

The daughters had just completed their routine in the Excelsior Springs Waterfest entertainment venue, so they now had time to shop. Both daughters and the mom were dressed in purple.  The youngest daughter found a floppy hat she really liked that had a smaller brim. This was the beginning of their shopping, so they wanted to take a look at the rest of the things at the show and might be back. A bit later; they returned and the youngest daughter got her hat with a pink leopard hat band. Mom selected a hat with a purple hat band so it was a perfect match for her dress. They were happy to pose for a quick picture together. The oldest daughter decided she wanted a floppy hat and went with the wide brim like her mom’s with a piano hat band and was pleased to have her picture taken, too.

In 2017, on the first day of the Wamego Tulip Festival, one of our fans selected two hat bands for her floppy hat. It would be like a totally different hat for her simply by changing the band because they are interchangeable. It was so nice that she stopped by the second day wearing orange.

Shouldn’t I Know You

One admirer couldn’t resist coming up and asking, “Shouldn’t I know you? Are you a famous person that I am just having a problem recalling your name?” Oh my! The hat made her look so good that she got lots of compliments as she continued on after carefully selecting her floppy hat at SantaCaliCon Days. The experience impressed her so much that she returned the next day to share her story.

The hat bands are interchangeable, so you pick a hat and a band to get a hat you like at the show (and on the web, too). In her case; she really had a hard time selecting between two and her friends agreed that they both looked nice on her. I thought she looked so outstanding that I couldn’t resist getting a picture.

Yes, she did get the second hat when she returned to share her story.
