Oldhat

Nathan Dueck is probably know best as the hat guy at the Winnipeg Folk Festival. I had not heard of Oldhat before this summer. My friend, her husband, and their children all got new/old hats at the festival. Old because 99% of his hats are made from recycled or second hand material. Nathan and Oldhat visited a couple festivals this summer to sell his wares and now has taken it a bit more down key do to schooling.

Nathan & Oldhat will be at the Winnipeg Centre Vineyard Craft Sale this weekend or you can purchase his hats at either The Haberdashery at 84 Albert St or Local Shop Awesome at 106B Osborne Village. Maybe we will be lucky to see him at 2010's Winnipeg Folk Festival too!!

And here's a huge plug to visit The Haberdashery for lots of other amazing stuff too... The owners are friends of mine and you couldn't support a more wonderful Winnipeg couple. Buy your hats and accessories at mom and pop stores, people - and support local "guys next door" instead of large franchise stores. It's good for all of us!!

Aw, I know Nathan -- we went to school together from K-gr12 and he was one of my very best friends :) Sadly we've lost touch and only see eachother a couple of times a year, but I am SO happy that he is so successful in the hat biz. Nathan - if you are reading this HI, see you on Saturday!

Maybe I will have to look at the Haberdashery for a plug on this site sometime soon!! I had never heard of them before this and they sound interesting!! I think it will need to be visited. ;)
