It's situated right next to a Emma Hope (?) shoe boutique and an amazing Ribbon store (french name..which escapes me as well)

You diamond Travelcard at the ready!

dirty words to keep in mind
I forgot to mention budgetary constraints :gulps

p.p.s do you think that question (^) is best answered by starting a topical thread of its own??

Cheersies. You guys are brill!

I am in need of head accessories such as the quaint netty black types worn at funerals - with face covered, also like the idea of feather adorned ones. I have images of hats daintly perched on elegant head and also chunkier furry coyote trooper type ones.

keywords: dainty, delicate, net, feather, furry

Where can I find these???? i don't even know where to start let alone get on eBay!

Help in the form of shop referal, weblinks and loads of pictures!!
It would really be fun to make your own!

It shouldn't be that complicated if you gather the materials, but if you're not up for that, i'd suggest some themed stores that perhaps may carry the meshy face veils, i quite like them actually.

Too bad you weren't wanting crazy old-fashioned hats for personal use! I make stuff like that upon occasion. Below you will see my silliest hat to date

Straightaway I know that when it comes to arts and crafts you would piss me out of the boat (colliqualism at its best) - My skills lie plainly in the ideas factory and purchase capacity!

Fedoras
Does anyone know where to get a fedora of good quality? I was looking at some on ebay but its kind of hard to buy hats without trying them on.

I found some at Bloomies and this store in the Beverly Center called Up Against the wall. I bought a nice orange tweed one.

Probably at vintage shops, though I personnally don't like fedoras.
