Covid-19 Update

Following the recent government announcement that non-essential shops can re-open from Monday 15th June, after due consideration and discussions we feel that we can only operate a very restricted and controlled service.

Therefore we will be operating from Monday 15th June 2020 STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. We need at LEAST 24 hours notice for your appointment please.

Appointments can be booked for Monday – Saturday, between 10am and 4pm by contacting 07773 910112 or contacting us on Facebook Messenger. Please note our online appointment system will NOT be in use at this time.

The way it will work:

  • A sanitising station will be situated at the front of the store.
  • Customers will be asked to sanitise their hands upon entrance to the shop.
  • All staff will be wearing face masks and gloves for your and our protection.
  • Face masks and gloves will be provided for customers that require them.
  • Maximum of TWO customers per appointment from the same household.
  • Gloves must be worn when handling any items (hats, shoes etc) in the shop.
  • We will adhere to the 2 metre social distancing rule meaning no fitting room appointments are available at this time.
  • When trying on shoes, pop-socks must be worn and will be provided for you.

Thank you for your patience and support, we hope all of our customers are safe, happy and well.

A key advantage of having our own Milliners allows us to provide a premium service. Should you see something you like, but it’s not in the colour you require, we can normally make it for you. That said we pride ourselves in having an extremely high percentage off ladies will find what they are looking for in our shop or online.

We pride ourselves in providing Hat Hire is for all occasions. Hat hire for Essex and throughout the UK, although we do supply a Hat Hire service in Europe and even customers in the USA.

This service takes around 2-3 weeks but can be done express on a 2 day turn around if needed.
