Easter is almost upon us. Whether you want a big floppy hat or something small and smart, Buffalo has you covered. I am particularly fond of the shepherdess hat with cheetah ears. So cute! Men's hats too.
We finally have some of Buffalo's wonderful themed shirts available for sale on Etsy. Due to copyright issues, not all of the shirts are listed (e.g. the Day of the Dead shirt with R2D2 and C3PO sugar skulls is not listed because Disney has been known to be litigious). I'm not entirely sure what Etsy's policy is on this score but we are erring on the side of caution.
The six shirts that are available are:
Buffalo made a bunch of new shirts from various fabrics with hand-sewn buttonholes and charming novelty buttons. Contrasting fabric on the underside of the collars. There are too many photos for a gallery so I put them in a slideshow below. I included some closeups of the buttons, because they are awesome. Love the mermaid shirt (again with the mermaids!) but I think the "Hunks for the Holidays" is my favorite. Love how she managed to find Christmas, Valentine's, Halloween, and 4th of July fabric with hunks on them.
April Fools Day is less than two weeks away. Buffalo has lots of merchandise appropriate for the occasion.
Four days until Christmas. Have you finished your Christmas shopping? Don't panic, Buffalo's got you covered. Introducing...[fanfare]... Buffalo Hats gift certificates! How does it work? First contact Buffalo via email with your phone number and put "gift certificate" in the subject line. The transaction will require a phone conversation to work out the payment method, we are not setup for digital transactions on the website. Once payment is secured, Buffalo will email you a PDF certificate that you can resend to the lucky recipient. I created certificates in the following denominations: $50, $75, $100, $125, $150, $200. If you want some other amount, we can accommodate that. Certificates can be cashed in for existing Buffalo wares or new works, custom made. If the full value of the certificate is not exhausted, the recipient will be issued a new certificate for the balance or store credit.
Happy Merry [Christmas|Kwanzaa|Hanukkah|Festivus|Winter Solstice] everybody!
A few words about Buffalo's Tiny Hats. When I first began photographing these, I forgot to include a coin to indicate scale. Most of those photos ended up in the Tiny Hats gallery. When the store opened, I re-photographed a number of tiny hats on a tiny hatrack for the store pages. You can find those tiny hats for sale individually under Tiny Hats 1, Tiny Hats 2, Tiny Hats 3, Tiny Hats 4 and Tiny Hats 5.
Today we launched a Tiny Hats section in the Etsy store for tiny hats with tiny hat boxes. These are for sale as a hat with hatbox set. We may later put up listings for tiny hats without hatboxes here as well.
For those of you who already own full-size Buffalo Hats, Buffalo can make a tiny replica of your hat. Drop her a line if you would like to discuss it.
I don't know about you, but the idea of getting up at 4am on Friday morning to go to a shopping center and fight with other people over discounted merchandise (after you fight with them for parking) sounds like the Seventh Circle of Hell. I do most of my Christmas shopping in my jammies in bed at 2:00am. Amazon is always open. Ditto ThinkGeek and Archie McPhee. Look! A Krampus scarf!
Sorry... what was I saying? Oh yeah. The holidays are fast approaching. Why not make life easier and shop online? Because I am magnanimous, I will list places to shop besides the Buffalo Hats store.
And if you want to buy your loved ones unique handmade raffia hats... [click me]
We have some ideas for other types of Buffalo merchandise but they are not ready for primetime yet. Watch this space.
