Thank you DAR for the business award of Historic Preservation! Daughters of the American Revolution is very dear to us through our own patriot ancestry search. Looking to the past to find answers and preserving history is important to us and the success of Watson’s Hat Shop. 🇺🇸
After several requests for a cardinal, I finally did one on this beautiful pure beaver hat for the show room. I have a feeling it will fly away soon to its new owner! This is made for either male or female and I know we have some AZ Cardinal fans out there - great game day hat!
This unique style has led us to research its origins to the gold and silver miners of the 1890s to the mid 1900s. (Particularly the Denver CO region) Its pretty cool and with an origin like that, its sure to spark good conversation.
If you have called us or stopped in, you may have chatted with Jerry, a true gem at Watson’s Hat Shop. Jerry helps us clean, repair, and restore your “train-wreck of a hat.” I admire his dedication and humble work as he restores the life back into your most treasured hats. He is more than just a helping hand around here, Jerry is a part of the Watson Hat Shop family. He is full of Godly wisdom, business advice, and stories of his service as a US Navy veteran 🇺🇸! We love you “Restoration Jerry!”
Check out his work on this before and after shot of a well worn Watson hat. @watsonshatshop
For any restoration work requests, check out our website for a list of services and pricing. Most requests will always result in a good old-fashion conversation anyways!
