LAST CALL! 50% OFF! Offered is a jaunty church or Derby hat with a story behind it. We will get to the story in a moment, but first the description. In vibrantly contrasting fuchsia and black, the wide brim provides both sun protection and a stylishly coy look. The crown is in fuchsia and is decorated with two satin ribbon bands and a huuuuge black net bow (13 1/2") at the back. Details: 4 3/4" wide brim with a 17" wingspan; 3" tall; 7 1/2" across crown. The inner circumference is 23" sizing this as a large. The sole label reads Made in Taiwan of 100% polypropylene. There are no stains, no holes. Now for the story. We bought this at a farm auction in Northern Illinois. Sadly, the owner of the hat is deceased, but her husband--a farmer in his 90's. told me his wife loved hats and he always "bought her the best." We will be listing more of her hats in the coming months, but this one is in recognition of an elderly farm wife who loved her hats and did not care if anyone else did or not. The neighbors report she wore them with pride. And, may you do so also. Item 10325a
