Everywhere I go I try to catch people wearing hats, buying hats , trying in hats .
The hat departments here are well looked after and no one manhandles hats as we seam to do in Australia . There are signs how to pick hats up and people are very respectful .
As long hats have ribbons and bows here and a bit of lace they have more chance of being bought . There are a lot of paper braid hats around and some from Italy made from laichow . The prices vary from about $ 45 - $ 550 for the Italian once .
I saw hats today for over $1200
