Thank you for taking the time to visit Helen's Hatbox and see what wonderful things I have to offer. All of the hats and bridal veils in Helen's Hatbox are hand made with love and care in my home . Do you ever wonder what the underside of a hat looks like? I do. That is why I always post a picture of the inside of the hat so a customer can see how my hats are lined and what kind of fasteners are there.
All of my fascinator and hat linings are made with 100% Dupioni silk so that my customer has natural fabric against her head. Natural fabrics absorb moisture so you won't have "Fly Away hair" or "Hat Hair". Each hat has my makers label in it also. Each fascinator also has a hat elastic, headband (alice band) or a comb wrapped with ribbon in the couture tradition to secure it in place. I use as little glue as possible, also in the old millinery tradition.
All of my hats are hand stitched and hand decorated . All of my fascinators with bases comply with the dress code for the Royal Enclosure at Ascot My bridal veils are hand beaded and/or have the lace hand sewn and attached to large combs. Because of my care your beautiful veil will be secure on your big day.

Whether your hat need is to grace your head at a wedding, to glorify God at church, or just because you want something beautiful and exciting, Helen's Hatbox's fascinators, hats and veils will meet your needs.

About

Helen's Hatbox

I offer a beautiful variety of vintage inspired hats for the modern woman. Each beautiful hat and veil are handmade with great care and detail by me.. I use as little glue as possible on each hat, choosing instead to hand stitch and decorate the hats for a more authentic quality look. My wedding veils are a more recent addition to my shop. Besides the traditional white and Ivory I have pink. blue and tan wedding hair accessories. Many of my veils come with matching hand made purses and shoe clips. Custom orders are always welcome. I will be glad to accommodate your wishes and make you a veil that is different from anybody else's and just perfect for you.

.Making hats has given me not only something to do but a way to express the creativity God has given me. Millinery in the 21st century may not be the most "conventional" thing to do, but then God made me very 'unconventional" and always wanting to step out in faith and try something new. In the past I have also been a Disaster Action Team responder for the American Red Cross and respond to health care needs with local and national disaster calls. As a retired RN, I work with people who have medical needs (medicines, medical equipment, glasses and dentures) as a result of the disaster. Since I started volunteering for the Red Cross, I have been to Oklahoma City following the tornados in May of 2013 and in May of 2014 I was in Alabama following a tornado there. My day job is being the "sample lady" in a local supermarket. I've handed out samples of everything from pecan pie to guacamole. My day job greatly limits my Red Cross activities but I still follow them to see what natural disaster they are working with and how.

If you are as concerned as I am about where and how your products are made I can assure you that all of the items I sell are made in Spring Texas and all of the supplies I use to make my hats and veils come from the USA, Canada and Europe. There should be no Fair Trade or cheap production issues with my products.

My ultimate goal is quality and perfection in each piece I make. My hats and veils come in a variety colors, styles designs that will be perfect for your next occasion. All of my fascinators comply with the dress code for the Royal Enclosure at Ascot and all of my combs are ribbon wrapped in the couture tradition.

-All hats and veils are made in a smoke free home. I have been allergic to cats in the past but for some reason I'm not allergic to my assistant. She is not allowed in my craft room though, much to her dismay.
-All hats are ready to ship
- Questions? Feel free to contact me, I would love to help you. I have made custom veils and hats for four years. If you have an idea, lets work together and make your idea come to life.
