Looking for hats

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

Plenty of fabric hats one can see and many are very well made . It's obvious the once made in chin and the once made in Japan . The attention to detail is much bigger
