New Retailer: Portobello Hats

We're very excited to announce yet another new shop carrying House of Nines Design hats in California- Portobello Hats in Santa Rosa.

They carry vintage, classic, and hand-made hats for both men and women, and also offer classes in hat construction and design.

Here are a few shots of the interior of the shop.

Here are the first batch of our hats that they've got in stock now.

'Maxima' ladies cocktail hat in hunter green velour-finish felt with peacock feathers.

'Pluff' mini pillbox in pacific blue tones.

'Bird Series: Peacock' mini top hat in navy blue fur felt with blue and green ribbon trim, vintage silk veiling, and a big spray of peacock feathers.

'Una' petite mini top in camel long-nap felt with chocolate brown trim, silk veiling, and hand-curled pheasant feathers.

Be sure to check the shop out if you can make it in for a visit- they carry the work of a number of talented milliners!

New Hats at Mystery Mister

Just delivered several new hats to Mystery Mister in San Francisco, including:

A special 'Tilley' ladies soft bowler. This one in tweedy red felt with black and red ribbon trim. Not sure I'll be making more of these unless I hear good feedback on the style, so if you like it let me know.

A mini pillbox for the holidays, this 'Polly' in black with a big cockade, rooster feathers and veiling would look great with a little black dress for holiday parties.
