About

The Tale of a California Hatmaker

Hi! My name is Lynda and I LOVE my Etsy Shop! 

Since 2009, I've been carefully wrapping my hand-made creations, knowing that somewhere in the world, somebody is going to be very excited when they open the box. 

But the Lynda Hats story really goes back to my first trip to London, where I fell head-over-heels in love with the world of fashion. Somehow, I got a job at Biba (Look it up on Wikipedia. Fabulous!), and that put me right in the middle of swingin' '70's London style. Lucky Me!!!

When I got back to Los Angeles, I enrolled at the world-famous FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising), where I began designing and learning the lifelong craft of Millinery on my way to an AA degree in Fashion. 

At the time, the Sunset Strip in Hollywood was bursting with new music every night, and I started photographing bands for magazines. When I went out, I wore my hats and people began asking if I could make something for them. I designed a label and dreamed of some day opening my own shop. 

But at first, a booth would have to do! I heard that they were starting something called The Hollywood Farmers Market, and I thought it might be the perfect place to sell my ultra-romantic hats, I loved it! Everybody was super nice and my hats were an immediate hit! (Plus, I became a good cook, thanks to all the friendly advice, farm fresh produce, and home made ingredients on sale). 
I started setting up at street fairs all over Southern California. 

One day, somebody asked if I'd like to sell my hats in boutiques all over the country. Of course, I said "Yes!" and got my first representative at the famed California Mart!  

I began designing Bridal Accessories when my best friend from school opened a shop called "Victorian Cowgirl" in Sedona, AZ. Candace makes beautiful wedding dresses that look back to a more romantic time, and my hats were a perfect fit.

I just love thinking about somebody walking down the aisle wearing something I made, and that inspired me to start designing tiaras, combs, clips, wreaths and belts for brides.

Finally, In 2009, I got to open the shop I always dreamed about. And I don't even need to leave home, because it's located on Etsy Street! 

I love getting up in the morning with a cup of tea and walking into my workshop to play all day with flowers and ribbons and pearls. I still get to take photos for magazines, but now it's at LA Art Gallery Openings. I love driving up the coast and tasting California wines. I love going to the gym, cooking for my friends, and all of the fabulous costumes in Downton Abbey, Outlander and Game of Thrones!

This year, Lynda Hats celebrates 30 years of happy hat making! 30 Years of doing what I love! I am blessed and I love my life!!! 

Thank you so much for stopping by my Etsy Shop! Enjoy yourself and have a wonderful day!

Lynda

Easy. LyndaHats accepts PayPal & Etsy Gift Cards. Direct Checkout lets you use any card or payment app that works for you. Easy. 

If you live in California, I'm required to charge sales tax on the purchase price. It will be automatically calculated and added to the total before you place your order.
Shipping
Easy. I ship five days a week, Monday through Friday, via USPS First Class Mail. You'll find the cost of domestic US shipping with each item's listing.  

Expedited Shipping
If you need your item quickly, Convo me, or send an email, BEFORE you place your order. We'll work out the cost in the most economical way possible for your needs. If we make arrangements before you order, it really speeds things up, so I can get it to you in plenty of time for your occasion.
Refunds and Exchanges
If something doesn't fit, or isn't what you'd hoped for, send it back. Convo or email me within 5 days of getting the package and we'll work it out. 

We can do a refund, or apply the purchase price to any item in the store. I'm always happy to do an exchange, and you'll be credited with the full purchase price toward your new item. Refunds are subject to a $10 restocking fee to cover the time I spent wrapping, packing, addressing, shipping and processing instead of making beautiful things. If you paid sales tax, that will be refunded as well.
Sale Items are not refundable.

For a refund or exchange, all Items must be returned to me in brand new condition. I do not pay for return shipping or refund the original shipping charges. For health code reasons, I can not accept items that have been worn.
Please return your items in original packaging.

In the unlikely case that your order gets damaged in shipping, I am truly sorry. Take a picture of the damage and attach it to a Convo or email. I'll send out a replacement as soon as humanly possible, give you credit toward another item, or issue a full refund including the original shipping charges and sales tax. I may ask you to return the item, for which I will send you a prepaid, pre-addressed shipping label. Again, please return the item in its original packaging. Easy.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS
If you don't find exactly what you're looking for, I am always delighted to design something special just for you, but please be aware that I cannot offer refunds for custom orders because they can't be sold as part of my line.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS 
If you live outside of the United States, you may be required to pay an Import Tax (Customs Duty, or VAT) for your purchase. Each country has it's own policy. Please contact your local Customs Office to see if there's an Import Duty and what the cost will be. I don't want you to get any unpleasant surprises, just something beautiful and fun to wear.

CRAFTSMANSHIP
Every Hat, Hair Accessory and Bridal creation in the Lynda Hats line is an original design, handcrafted in California from the highest quality materials. I am a formally trained milliner and have taken pride in making beautiful things by hand since 1986. 

VINTAGE MATERIALS
When I come across vintage hats, ribbon or flowers, it's hard to resist wanting to design something. Because of the unpredictable availability of these materials, I can only make a limited number of pieces, and each is an original. Vintage materials are listed in the description of each One-Of-A-Kind piece.

QUESTIONS? 
If you have any questions about an item, please get in touch before you order. Convo me or send an email. I'm always happy to answer questions. And Thank You for visiting Lynda Hat's Etsy Shop!
