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, “You look nice in both, but you 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.
Mexico Trip Hat
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.
Unique Floppy Hats
These four ladies were at the Ponca City OK Herb Festival and had to each get a floppy hat. They enjoyed selecting their hat and making it special with a unique hat band. They look so nice in their hats!
All The Girls Like Floppy Hats
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.
Popular Hat Bands
The mom found her hat and the daughter was happy to find a floppy hat that was just right, too. Oh, how pretty they looked together!
Early on the first day at that same Wamego Tulip Festival, a lady selected the same turquoise butterflies hat band with her floppy hat.
Press here for the popular, turquoise butterflies hat band that the lady and the daughter both got. Then, select the floppy hat that is the ideal hat for your hat band.
Sunny Day Hats
Pella 2017 was filled with nice, sunny days. Perfect for floppy hats. A mom found a hat that worked well and she was pleased to pose for the picture with her daughters.
Two friends stopped by and selected floppy hats and the next day the gal on the right came back for a second hat.
A mom was glad her daughter found a skull cap for her welding and she found a floppy hat. Mom is very proud of her welder, daughter! Press here for the skull caps.
Do You Like My Hat?
The grandma saw the hats in Pella and had to get one. She has read the “Go, Dog. Go!” book by P. D. Eastman to her grandson lots and lots of times. She relayed fondly about their reading times as she shared she was going to ask him, “Do you like my hat?” the next time they are together.
In 2015, the first year she stopped by to shop at Wamego, she selected a flat cap. Press here for the flat caps.
In 2016, she stopped to report she loved the flat cap and wanted something new. She selected a nice, soft head wrap with speckles. Press here for the head wraps.
In 2017, on the first day of the Wamego Tulip Festival, one of our fans selected two hat bands for her floppy hat for a totally different look with the same hat and more head wraps. It was so nice that she stopped by the second day wearing orange hat band on her floppy hat.
Gift Hat Bands
The lady bought her floppy hat at the Wamego Tulip Festival.
The next year, her mom stopped by to check out all the new hat bands. She was drawn to those made out of the mesh net and the picture shows one of the pink bands that was on the rack. In visiting, she shared that her daughter truly enjoys her hat. Her daughter would be taking off to study in France and she wanted to get a new hat band as a gift. She selected a mesh net one in red.
She has continued to stop for a new hat band every year and reported the hat, with all the bands, has been around the world with her daughter.
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 before she began her stroll which garnered her the “shouldn’t I know you” compliment.
Yes, she did get the second hat when she returned to share her story.
