I have often believed I have been born in the wrong century. My love for the old west permeates my lifestyle. As a youngster, my LawMan son and I used to dress up like cowboys and lawmen, and banker’s wives, and sometimes Ladies of the evening. I have made all our costumes for our outings, and as a teen we began attending SASS and Jubilee events. It was reassuring to know that there were other adults in the same time warp.
Now that the nest is empty, CowboyDoc and I are attending the local SASS Events, and yes, I get to go in a new SASS Hat each time. Ohhh, they’re all jealous.
Hats have always been my favorite. I keep my friends well supplied with new designs and colors to match every outfit. Enjoy my collection. Some of these are Works In Progress, and as they are completed, I will update the pics. The hats are listed as Vintage, which means it is a vintage hat stripped, and redesigned and carries some flaws or age to it or New, meaning they are newly made from new hoods to finished piece. Prices are listed if you are interested in custom pieces.
