In this photo, I'm wearing a new polyester and wool hat I got for $8.99 at a chain store of low-priced clothing in NYC in Octobe 2007. The store is called Strawberry in case anyone knows it.
Here's another mmodern hat I'm sneaking into my Antique Hat thread.
I wore this to the grocery store, and people were confused (again). But my grocers smiled at me and another woman who wore a hat smiled when I commented on her hat.
