This store has beautiful hats and fascinators. I bought both: a beautiful red hat and a fun purple fascinator. I loved this place! Located in beautiful Old Town, just steps away from Greyfriars.

Unfortunately I cannot recommend this store. Both my aunt and my mother bought hats from this store not only was it's extremely over priced but the jewels fell out within days. Really disappointed would never use this store again.

this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
