TheMillineryShop's Shop Announcement

HANDMADE WOMENS HATS. The philosophy here is simple: You should LOVE your hat, and you should look better with your hat on than off.

Welcome to THE MILLINERY SHOP, where I make vintage style women's hats completely by hand using classic millinery techniques. I am inspired by 1920's, 30's, 40's, and 50's fashions and make my hats on authentic vintage hat blocks from those years. I don't purchase the hats, I steam the raw materials and block the felts and straws into shape to make cloche hats, cocktail hats, fedoras, berets, pillbox hats, wide brim hats and headbands.

Every hat you see is the actual hat that is available. I can also custom make a hat for you in your choice of size, style and color - (often but not always, since some hats simply can not be duplicated)

All the hats and kilties** (shoe tassels) in this shop are designed and handmade by me. This is not a collective shop. I am the milliner, photographer, computer tech, shipping department and custodial staff. All blocking (shaping the hats) and sewing is hand done by me.

**Introducing handmade kiltie shoe tassels, which turn any pair of lace-ups into vintage style shoes and will turn your golf shoes into classic golf attire. As one customer put it, her kilties are her "new favorite thing in the universe".

Please browse through my "sold" section and see the archive of women's hats that have sold. Convo me if you see something you want or need something special. will re-direct you right to my shop. (Easy to remember.) Visit often.
