  • "Deighton Cup incentive"

    With the Deighton cup only a week away, we are looking forward to seeing a flash of style and class, reminiscent of the days before shredded jeans, flip flops and yoga wear. Need more incentive to attend? Please drop by my booth in the vendors section, sign up ( provide your email to receive notice of future promotions, sales and events) and you will be entered to win this beautiful headpiece. We will draw from all entrants at around 4:00 pm and the winner can take this home to wear at their next fashion outing!

    This hat is truly a work of art, an expression of nature and its beauty, the colours of summer and floral design.The story behind this headpiece is unique as the petals came from a store that used to be located in Montreal back in the 1950’s. I was in Montreal back in the early 1990’s where I met a costume designer who's grandmother owned a hat store. when she passed away she left this gal the inventory. She took me to the warehouse where I felt overwhelmed by the vintage trims. I decided to purchase 9 boxes ,each about about 25 inches square of vintage trims, which I used mostly for my hats. Most of those trims are gone now with very few left in my inventory. I was using vintage trims before the trend to use these trim hit the market. Back then there were many to be found, now,sadly, not so much. This headpiece was designed with the “vintage” feel in mind as well as incorporating trims long gone from the market. This hat is special in that the petals had a story to be shared. Most of my work has a story and that is what makes creativity unique.

    This headpiece will be at my table at the Deighton Cup. I will be wandering the grounds and celebrating the experience of my first Deighton Cup, but will be dropping by booth from time to time to visit and say hello. My products are always available online.
    You can also follow me on social media channels from my website as well.
    I hope to see you on July 16th and best of luck to all the horses in this race!
