Cinco de Mayo 2019
Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner. Buffalo still has two of her California Sombreros™ and her limited edition Margarita cocktail hat available for sale. Click on the images below to go to the Etsy listings.
In Your Easter Bonnet
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.
For Buffalo (and Followers of Buffalo) there are three major holidays:
Valentine's Day is fast approaching, followed in a few months by Mother's Day. You are probably aware that Buffalo crochets flowers since they adorn many of her hats. Have you considered a custom raffia flower bouquet? Buffalo can make flowers of your choosing with some advance notice. If you want a custom bouquet for any occasion, contact Buffalo.
Note: I just noticed that the Etsy store 'Request Custom Order' and 'Contact shop owner' buttons on the main shop page are grayed out on chrome. This should not be the case. If you want to place a custom order, you can do it from specific listings, e.g. from here. I have custom orders enabled so I don't know why these buttons are inaccessible and the forums are currently read-only so I can't ask other shop owners. You can email Buffalo to explain what you want in a custom order but it's easier for her to do the sale through Etsy.
Note #2: I just checked the Etsy store with Firefox and Microsoft Edge browser and the custom order and contact buttons are enabled there. Not sure what the issue is, maybe my popup blocker is in the way? In any case, you can request custom orders through Etsy.
Time for the annual Halloween sales pitch. Is there anyone who makes more Halloween-worthy goods than Buffalo? She makes masks, pirate coats, silly hats, and themed Aloha shirts, among other things. Here's is a sample of her current stock (more on Etsy). If you want a special order, better contact Buffalo now. She has limited time available to accommodate special orders.
Demon of Vice Mask
New raffia mask, inspired by vice! Look closely and you will see:
It's Friday the Thirteenth
Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527-1593) was an Italian painter who created portraits of people out of fruit, vegetables, flowers, fish, and other objects - animate and inanimate. Here's an example of his work:

Arcimboldo's work inspired Buffalo to create a modern update on the theme. Behold, the Junk Food Mask:
