What kind/period do you want? As I say to my customers, "Victorian" covers a heck of a long time.

You could try Catherine Delaney http://www.ska123.force9.co.uk/ who has been providing my customers with hats for years. Or you could check your local charity shops for a boater shape and trim it yourself. I once found a "Kiss me Quick" hat in a hard synthetic felt that trimmed up beautifully, once the ribbon was taken off.

I can send you hat pictures off list if you like?

Have a copy of an 1871 Young Englishwoman's Magazine, which has a couple of pages of hats. Will scan it tonight. Shall I send them to the e-mail address on your web site? I don't know how to post here!!
