Umbrella Hats, revisited

In my search for the ultimate umbrella hat, I have found only three basic styles. The first is the multi-colored umbrella hat. Each triangular-shaped panel is a solid color. These can be red, yellow, blue and white, or red, yellow, green and white, or some other combination. These are the cheapest. I got mine for 99 cents plus shipping. The second is the USA-themed umbrella hat. I've seen different versions and different qualities. The third is the camouflage umbrella hat. For some reason I could only get this one mail-order from England. It is a good quality hat and only cost about 11 pound sterling, including shipping. I think that's about 16 US dollars. I was able to pay using paypal.

If you're looking for an umbrella hat in a special color (other than above), you probably won't find it. If you do, please let us know!

If you're crafty, or know someone who is, it would probably be pretty easy to cover a cheap umbrella hat with some cheap fabric to make a custom umbrella hat. You could probably customize it in other ways, too. Add some dingle balls or something like that.

And don't forget to send us a picture!

My New Umbrella Hat!

I got a new umbrella hat! What do you think?

I had to order it from England! Why can't I find a camouflage umbrella hat in the good ol' USA? I'm very disappointed. :-(

New Site

I'm still working on our new website with our new URL, umbrellahatsociety.com. Technical issues. I don't know why some things happen, or don't happen, in the technological world, but they do. Or don't. And we see if there's a way to make things work, or a way to work around things so that things work. In any case, our new site will kick ass!!

I, your illustrious founder, have taken my official photo. Enjoy!

Cheap Umbrella Hats

I bought a cheap umbrella hat. I figured it would do just fine. I was wrong. Oh, it's an okay umbrella hat, but it's a little uncomfortable, and one of the metal (tin?) pieces that attaches to the elastic band came loose.

I'll be buying a higher quality hat.

A cheap umbrella hat is all you need for membership, but you may want to spend a couple more dollars for a comfortable, reliable umbrella hat.

Just a little heads-up!

Our Store

Okay, we're really moving along now. I'm going to design some graphics and logos and come up with a motto (maybe) and use them to create some t-shirts and stuff that we can buy and wear or display proudly. Our store will be here: http://www.cafepress.com/umbrellahats/ .

What we'll call ourselves

The Red Hat Society has Red Hat Ladies. But the UHS is open to both men and women. So we'll call ourselves the Umbrella Hat Gals and Guys. I guess I should design some t-shirts, and maybe create a logo and motto. Hmmm. Work, work, work.

Got Mine

My Umbrella Hat came in the mail today!! I'll be posting my official UHS (Umbrella Hat Society) photo very soon!!
