Shopping

Click on the logo above to go to the official Red Hat Society website for this shopper's heaven of delights where you'll find clothing, hats, accessories and all kinds of fun Red Hat stuff. 

www.linentablecloth.com - this may seem strange that I have a tablecloth link on here, but I just (12/26/07)ordered 10 of them for a New Year's Eve party  (I got sick of paying $7 each for rental every year) and they are the most beautiful quality I have ever seen, and they only cost me around $11 each for 90" rounds!  I got them in one day (yes, you heard me right) for an additional $19 FedEx cost. They come in a zillion colors and sizes (yes, red & purple too!)  If you put on a lot of events it is definitely smart to purchase rather than rent and this is the place to get them. Check it out!

http://laraines.com/index.html This site has adorable t-shirts with themed bikinis and lingerie on them and other fun red-hat oriented stuff.

Been looking for one of those old-timey swim caps with the flower petals on it?  Me too, and I found a site that has them in EVERY color of the rainbow, including red, purple, pink and lavender!

Local Foo-Foo
While it is not necessary that you do so, we know that all Ladies of the Court love to shop, so if you want to purchase some Red Hat Foo-Foo locally, here are some places I've discovered:

Carol's Classic Collection & Consignments has moved from Coffee Road. They are now on Fruitvale just about a block north of Rosedale Highway. She has a much bigger store now and an entire room dedicated to red hat pretties. The owner is Carol Aldean and the adorable sales person is Andrea - she is fun and just has the cutest personality. She keeps promising to be one of my pinkies - we've just got to get her to an event!  There are FABULOUS red & purple hats, hat stands, clothes, eyeglasses, eyeglass holders, hair ornaments, and tons of jewelry! She also has lots of adorable stuff for pink hatters, too. So go, go, go, right now, and please tell her I sent you.

bullet

Sugardaddy's on Stockdale Hwy & California has moved but they're in the same shopping center. They are now next door to Long's drugs, facing Stockdale Highway. Sherry's done up her window this week in the cutest Red Hatter stuff you've ever seen (see photos below taken 10/25/04. The sweaters are to die for! She has hats and jewelry and clothes and some adorable feathered fans. Please tell Sherry, the owner, that I sent you and that you saw her window on my website? Thanks!

Dreams - I dropped by today and discovered that my friend Lynn Deats owns this store! I used to buy clothes from her years and years ago when she had a store downtown. Dreams is at 4917 Stockdale Hwy. in the Stockdale Fashion Plaza (behind Outback). Her phone number is 837-8457She carries a small amount of red hat items, such as long t-shirt dresses and t-shirts that are hand painted. She also has scarves, pins, earrings and a cute purse and one red hat.  This is a BBW store (Big, Beautiful Women), so it only carries size 12 to 24. Please tell Lynn I sent you.

bullet

Unique Accents in Surroundings - This is a little shop downstairs in this new design center on the corner of California and Easton Drive (in the El Torito shopping center). The owner, Linda Dart, has a lot of cute Red Hat stuff, and says she is always on the hunt for more, gets new things in all the time, and is also looking for pink hat items as well.  Linda would love to meet all the Kern Co. Red and Pink Hatters, so stop in and see what she has to offer. She carries official RHS greeting cards - lots of birthday and friendship cards, pillows, boas, purses, stationery, hat pins, dolls, scarves, and some really pretty red hats. She carries things no one else has, like flags for your yard, and red hat welcome mats. You can see photos of her store on my photos page under the Red Ruckus Road Rally title. Please tell her I sent you.

bullet

Longs Drugs on Mount Vernon and Columbus has the most Red Hat Society items I've seen locally. They have some nice red hats (and hat boxes that come with), some lovely red & purple purses, pins, earrings, socks, tote bags, and t-shirts. But if you wait till you get your membership cards, you'll get a 10% discount on any Red Hat item if you purchase if at the cosmetics register and show your card.

L.A.

If you have a chance to go to L.A., there is a place called "Something Special" at 1014 S. Santee St., in the heart of the garment district that has oodles of red hats and accessories. They have lots of pink hats and jewelry as well. It is open to the public for retail sales on Saturdays only, but if you have access to a resale license, you can get great wholesale prices, plus no sales tax  . . . such a deal; however, your first wholesale purchase has to be a minimum of $150, but once you are in their system there is then no minimum. To get to the garment district, take I-5 to LA, then the 110 south. Exit the 110 at 8th Street, and go east. We usually park in a lot at 8th and Maple ($6), which is centrally located in the district. 


RED HAT CAR MAGNETS
Greetings Sister Hatters!
I am the Founding Queen Mother of the Razzle Dazzle Red Hats in Westport/Leola, South Dakota. As a Red Hatter "to the core", I thought we should identify ourselves on the highways and "buy" ways as we travel about the world! Therefore, I did some research and found a neat RED HAT CAR MAGNET! These magnets are similar to the yellow ribbon "Support Our Troops" magnets that are very popular now. They are a red hat approximately 5 inches x 7 inches. The hat is, of course, red, outlined in purple with a purple hat band and a purple flower. They are made of a durable, fade resistant plastic that adheres very well (even though I would remove them at the car wash, just in case). See attachment.

I thought these were so neat and unique and I wanted them for my own car but I had to order 500 of them! So, I am hoping to share with other Mad .. er .. Red Hatters. I have had so much fun "meeting" Sister Hatters all across the nation via this little "project". If you or members of your group might be interested in telling the world just who you are as we drive, just let me know. The magnets are $5.00 each plus $.50 postage or $2.00 postage for 5 magnets. I would certainly accept your personal check.  If you have any questions just reply to me via email or snail mail:
