Announcement   Welcome to my Etsy Hat Shop!

Pre-Summer Sale!!!

For my Etsy customers only, and for a limited time on a trial basis, I am currently marking down about twenty some of my warm season hats to make room. I have chosen these hats for price reduction due to reasons such as size, or end of fabric availability. These hats are in pristine condition, have never been worn, and stand up to my quality standards. All of these hat styles remain in my collection. These significantly reduced prices apply only to the hats listed in my Pre-Summer Clearance section, and not for custom requests for the same hat style. Additionally, I offer a 10% discount if you purchase two or more of my Pre-Summer Clearance hats. I will also ship two hats per box, and will reduce shipping accordingly. Please drop me an e-mail if you will be purchasing more than one of these sale hats and I will adjust the prices accordingly before your purchase. All purchases of the hats in this section of my shop are final sales.

All of my “Everyday Living” hats are handcrafted by me with attention to design, detail and quality. I have about 100 hat designs in my complete collection, but all are not listed in my Etsy Hat Shop. I like to keep my Etsy listings to about 50 hats to avoid confusion, and I post hats seasonally in accordance with the weather in parts of the northern hemisphere. Each “ready to wear” listed in my Etsy Hat Shop is available for immediate purchase.

Each of my designs has a " first name" which serves as my product ID. I remember each hat style by name and that just makes things easier .Once a hat is designed and named, I never change the design name. (ok – once I did, but I had a very good reason). Each hat style name is always cut from the same pattern. When I design a hat, after the beta test, I cut the pattern for the hat in three sizes, from which I can work to accommodate various women’s head sizes. Please note, however, that my felted hat styles are never exactly the same. It's impossible to completely control what happens to the hat in the felting process. I wish.

About Head Sizes

There are no “one size fits all” hats in my collection. Hat sizes are like shoe sizes. Women’s head sizes range from 20” to about 25”, with the average woman’s head size being 22-1/2”. Most of the “ready to wear” hats listed in my Etsy Hat Shop are sized at the average 22-1/2”, but very often I often make custom hats for women who have smaller or larger heads. To learn more about measuring your head size go to delphydesigns.com/sizeup
Knowing your headsize is key to a good hat fit! It is very important when purchasing a hat.

About Custom Order Requests

Custom orders require collaboration and good communications.

If you see a hat that you like, but need a different size, please send me an Etsy e-mail and let me know about your request. I may not have the materials to exactly duplicate the hat style in your size, but often I can. I will respond to your request promptly. Sometimes I buy an entire bolt of fabric, but often I buy a remnant or several yards. Yarns come and go, much to my dismay. Tthere are two things that I will not do in the area of custom orders. I will not shop for fabric, especially prints, that are sometimes a figment of one’s imagination. I use a lot of standard fabrics that are readily available to me if I don’t already have them on hand. It never hurts to ask, however. The only other thing that I will not do for online custom orders is to design a new hat that does not already exist in my collection. A fairly complete catalogue of my designs is available for viewing on my website delphydesigns.com. If you do find a style you like on my website, which style is not listed in my Etsy Shop, please drop me an Etsy e-mail about the hat. Just tell me the hat’s name, and I will know which hat you are speaking about. It is not my intention to circumvent the Etsy system of selling by diverting my Etsy customers elsewhere. I have many, many designs to choose from….brimmed, berets, pillboxes, cloches, trappers, caps, shells and even headwraps. I find that when a customer describes their ideal hat, I usually have the hat design in my collection. Suggestions, ideas and inquiries are always welcomed though. I would love to hear from you! I love my Etsy customers!

For more information about payment, shipping, refunds and exchanges, packability, care and storage, please see my shop policies.

Thank you for your interest, support, and for stopping by my shop.

Hello and welcome to my Shop Policies Page! I make hand crafted women's everyday living hats. I have been selling my hats on Etsy since March, 2009. I value my customers and my reputation.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept PayPal,
Shipping
I package my hats very meticulously for delivery to you. Each hat has a tag which gives the name of the hat, size, materials content and care. The hat is wrapped loosely in plastic to protect it from the elements. My business card is enclosed. Then the hat is packed in an appropriate sized shipping box surrounded by recycled brown shredded paper.I generally ship USPS in the U.S., but in a few cases when this cost is not reasonable, I will ship ground. I will ship your hat within 3 days after receiving your payment and securing your shipping address. I do not typically insure my hats when shipping, however, if you would like any special shipping arrangements please let me know. I will ship internationally when allowed by law. International shipping method and costs will be determined on a case by case basis. International customers should contact me for shipping information prior to making payment.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and Exchange Policy

This seller does not generally accept refunds or exchanges. It is important that the correct hat size measurements are taken by the customer.

Occasionally a circumstance may arise whereby a customer did not accurately determine their headsize and an exchange or refund is requested by the buyer. I will give every consideration to these requests and approve them on a case by case basis. Refund or exchange requests must be made in writing (Etsy e-mail) within 2 days of the customers receipt of the hat. In the case where an exchange or refund is approved by the seller, the following conditions must be met by the customer:

the seller has approved the return or exhange in writing (Etsy e-mail)
the item cannot have been worn
the item is not damaged
the item must be returned to the seller in the same box as sent to the buyer
the hat must be shipped back to the seller within 2 days of written approval of the return or exchange
the buyer is responsible for paying the shipping cost of the returned item

Upon the seller's receipt of the returned item, and only if all of the conditions named above are met by the buyer, the seller will issue a refund to the buyer via PayPal. PayPal's cost of the sale to the buyer will be deducted from the refund to the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
About Suitcase Packability

My standard in naming a hat as "suitcase packable" is that the particular hat will withstand vacuum packing, shrink wrapping, folding it and putting it in a pocket, or sitting on it--- and it will come out of these experiences the same as when it arrived at your doorstep, ready to wear. To achieve my "suitcase packability" standards, design planning must take place in the forefront. The hat style has to be appropriate to packability. The fabric needs to be relatively wrinkle proof, and what goes inside of the hat (the stabilizers) needs to be soft, yet firm enough to allow the hat to have body. Fancy trims are difficult to incorporate into a packable hat. I do have customers who have told me that they packed one of my hats in a suitcase and it came out "ok". I understand that may be true, but it is my customers decision to suitcase pack a hat that I have not tagged as "suitcase packable". With a little bit of overhead steam shots (not touching the fabric), most of my hats can be restored to their original condition after suitcase packing. I would never recommend suitcase packing a hat with buckram, which is a very stiff material used inside of some hats. Packing a buckram interfaced hat would be like squishing a stiff straw hat into your suitcase. It will not survive. I seldom use buckram in my hats, but it is useful and if I do use buckram in a hat, I will list this in fact in my hat description.

About Storage Care:

When not being worn, or posing in a room, my hats should be stored by stuffing them with tissue or plastic, putting them in a plastic bag, and placing them in a box. Hats with wool should be stored the same way, brim up, and with moth repellent such as a lavender, cloves & pepper herb bag. Imagine, long after you're gone, your grandaughter finds your packed hat - the one you wore all the time, and she says, "oh look, it's Gramma's favorite hat, AND SHE WEARS IT. So, wear my hat often, care for it, and maybe one day someone will inherit it and wear it more, in rememberence of you.
