A Whole Lotta Hats In New Orleans

Straw Hats from Hartford York - Men's Biltmore Porkpie - The MilanI get the Hat Life e-newsletter (free subscription, by the way) and was happy to read an AP article there called Hatter Sells a Thousand Hats. It seems that a long-time hat retailer (who’s been selling hats in the city since 1979) more than doubled her average sales of hats on the first day of this year’s New Orleans Jazz Festival.

Hatter Lynn LeBeaud attributes some of the interest in hats to people wanting to replace hats lost in Katrina. Others just wanted a new one or were looking for a reprieve from the blazing sun.

Whatever the reason, it’s nice to see that the $9.6 billion music industry in pre-Katrina New Orleans–along with the hat business, of course!–is coming back strong.

Thanks for reading,
Steve Singer
CEO Hartford York
