Bonnie was super communicative with regards to the fabric and her attention to detail certainly shows in the final product! Great hat love that I was able to customize it.

Great hat and great service. I have a collection of over thirty newsboy caps and the one Bonnie made for me is my new favorite.

I am beyond thrilled with this beautiful hat! I have never been able to buy a hat that fits, as I have a large head and thick hair. This was custom made for me with love! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Bonnie! I absolutely love my new hat!
Hats With a Past - Retro Style Millinery
My shop was born of my love for vintage fashion and my years as a Costume Properties Artisan at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
Owner, Maker, Designer
I've made hats for the past 20 years - starting as a theatrical milliner.
I have also amassed a collection of vintage buckles that I add to my cloches for a little extra style.
For summer hats I've been using modern linens and cottons. I use European linen which has a really nice weight to it and I'm mad about Japanese linen!
I use only 100% washed cotton for my linings. However, if you would like something else, let me know.

I ship internationally! The price for shipping is listed by item under "Everywhere Else".
PLEASE NOTE: Many countries impose a customs or tariff fee on items shipped from other countries. Some fees can be quite high (such as in the UK). This cost is imposed by the country that the hat is sent to so you will have to pay the fee in addition to the cost of the hat and shipping.
I will gladly ship to Canada, however the cost of priority is prohibitive so I will send first class instead. Unfortunately, there is no delivery confirmation for first class to Canada. Canada also imposes customs fees on imported goods.
