Announcement   Handmade hats, fascinators and hair accessories.

Custom service available.

Although I’m now a milliner by trade, I didn’t always make hats. I spent a large chunk of my life lecturing English Literature and trying to become an academic, something that couldn’t be further away from my current world of glitter, jewels, rainbows and craziness!I really didn’t plan this career but after much soul searching I found that books and studying weren’t enough. I made a huge leap of faith into doing what I love most: creating beautiful hats and accessories. I started small – making simple hair flowers and glittery hair clips and as I grew in confidence, my designs have become more detailed and adventurous.

In 2011 I was approached by River Island who asked me to supply them with hats and other accessories for their autumn/winter campaign and I saw my work featured on billboards in the UK and I’ve also been lucky enough to be featured in many magazine and blog editorials, including Closer Magazine, Hello! Magazine, the Daily Mail, L'Express Paris, Vintage Life, Rock n Roll Bride and the Sun newspaper.

I ordered a custom fascinator, and Gail was great! She worked with me to make sure I got what I wanted and on time. And it was a huge hit at the wedding a wore it for, I won the best fascinator contest!

Hi there! Welcome to my shop. Here you will find a range of quirky, sparkly, weird, classic and unique hats and fascinators. Please do ask me if you have any questions,. All of my items are customisable and if you can't see anything you like, message me as I also offer a custom service.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept PayPal, Credit Cards, Etsy Gift Cards and most other methods.
Shipping
All items are posted First Class unless otherwise specified. If you require additional services such as Special Delivery or Recorded Delivery, please contact me prior to ordering. International Delivery packages are sent by AirSure mail which is a tracked service unless another service is specifically requested. Airsure is slightly more expensive than standard postage but a tracking number is provided which provides security and problems with missing parcels.

Postage costs are worked out fairly and are governed by the weight of your order.
Items may take up to 14 working days to dispatch however, larger orders will take longer. You will be notified of this via email. After this email notification please allow between 2-4 working days for the arrival of your order unless you are overseas (I am in the UK)

I retain proof of postage for all items.

Please contact me as soon as possible if you believe your item to have gone missing during transit. I will endeavour to locate the item and to rectify the situation.
If your item arrives damaged please notify me within 7 days of receiving the item. Failure to do so may result in me being unable to offer an exchange or refund.

I can only provide information regarding timescales for shipping based upon the information gathered from Royal Mail's website. Please note timings are meant as guides only, and mail may also be subject to delays that are out of my control such as an item being held in customs. The buyer is responsible for any customs fees incurred & I do not accept returns because of an unwillingness to pay custom fees.

I do not accept returns for items that do not meet a specific deadline due to postage delays that are beyond my control.
Refunds and Exchanges
If the package has already been sent, it is the customer's responsibility to pay the postage costs of returning the item. The customer must carefully pack the item to prevent damage during transit.

Upon cancellation, I will refund you within 7 days of receiving the returned item.
Cancelling orders will not affect your legal rights.

If you need an item by a specific date it is your responsibility to let me know. I DO NOT ACCEPT returns/cancellations for items that are late if you do not specify the date you need it by. I'm not psychic, so please let me know if you need an item urgently :)

I only accept returns if the items are damaged/broken upon receipt

Returns must be agreed in writing before they are sent back. Failure to do so will result in a refund being denied & the item/s being returned to the sender at their own expense.
If a package designed for return does not reach me, GG's will not be held responsible. Therefore I recommend Recorded Delivery for all returns so that the item/s can be tracked.

Returned item/s must reach me in the same state as they were sent in. GG's defines this state as being unworn, undamaged and with labels attached.

Custom orders are non returnable unless there is a fault with the item. All items are photographed before dispatch.
