Window Display October 2019

The October 2019 Window Display was about Hat Makers and Hat Suppliers in Lostwithiel.

Today, when you read the list of bespoke makers and suppliers of hats in Lostwithiel featured in our display it is hard to believe that there were quite so many in such a small town. We perhaps need to be reminded that 'once upon a time' to go out without wearing a hat was not acceptable.

One of the difficulties with hats is storing and keeping them in good condition. Sadly, many wonderful hats become 'victims of deterioration or destruction ' over time so it hasn't been easy to locate the ones on display.  
The history of 'hats for every occasion' is a fascinating one. With thanks to Fiona, Judy, Red and Keith for loaning the hats on display, and to Maggie,Gill and Amanda for executing the display.

The display was kindly sponsored by MKM Extrusions
