Today is December 8, 2017, Happy holidays and thank you for your continued support. My websites (1)Kay's Art of Millinery,(2) Hats of Distinction, (3) Buckram Hat Frames and (4) FOSSHAPE hat frames have all been combined into one website You are invited to visit the new site, save it to your favorites, like it, and pass this information on to others. The old websites including Kays Art of Millinery Calif Style will be phasing out. My hope is customers find the new one-stop shopping website more convenient, less time consuming and more sales will be generated.  Also please keep checking the new website for new products, designs, and materials that will soon be added.

All remaining hats on my Hats of Distinction website are are being discounted 50% to make room for new designs and encourage visitors to the new site. This offer is effective December 8, 2017 through January 31, 2018 and DOES NOT include unfinished hat frames or new soft hats.  Some hats are already available at Mustard Seed Studio Pop Up Shop, 1679 Jackson Ave, Memphis TN, 38106, December 8-10, and 15-17, 2017. However all the products on the website are not there so if you are interested in a particular hat email me; or call 318 792-5757. If ordering online you will be sent a purchase order for the discounted price plus shipping. Those in the surrounding areas may also meet me during pop up hours 11:00AM-7:00PM to complete your purchase. Shipping charges will be added to all orders, in addition sales tax for Tennessee residents are also required. 

 During the pop up I will be offering a limited number of mini hat making workshops creating fascinators and the $25.00 fee includes hat bases and some embellishments.
