Look Lovely For Less!
Hat Trix yearns for the opportunities to meet our customers – and we are delighted that we’ve been able to do so in the early part of 2022. If you are dropping into the shop for the first time, you are most welcome. It continues to be a tough time for many people but things have been easier as the year has progressed. Please stay safe and well.
Perhaps you are going to a big event to celebrate the platinum jubilee of HRH Queen Elizabeth II!? We’ve recently sold an item of headwear that will be worn at the Trooping of the Colour on the public holiday weekend. That is an exciting prospect for we two at Hat Trix.
We have sold some items in recent months and a customer wrote to us: “Thank you so much for the beautiful hat, I love it!! As does everyone else […] I’m sure the [wedding] day will go amazingly”
It may be that your family or friends have been planning weddings and those events have had to be postponed. That is disappointing for everyone involved and perhaps has been painful on your purse too! At Hat Trix we are truly sorry and empathise with your disappointment. Of course some weddings went ahead in 2021 with small guests numbers; and celebratory parties will perhaps follow – you may still want that hatinator, fascinator or full hat!
We at Hat Trix have been marketing on line. If you purchased an outfit for an event that has not taken place, you may like to consider allowing Hat Trix to market it on your behalf! If so, do look at our page on marketing your hat for you.
A most beautiful hatinator is available through us this month; an item purchased for a wedding that was subsequently postponed twice, thus necessitating a change of outfit. Take a look at this gorgeous off-white hatinator!
In many ways, in uncertain circumstances, hiring a hat or fascinator from us may be more economical. Hat Trix now offers much of our stock for hire. As a guide, the retail price shown is for purchases; if you wish to hire – half of the retail price will be reimbursed to you on safe return of the item in question.
Hat Trix will market for you including on this website full details and photographs of your hat, advertising it at wedding faires and on our social media posts, for a modest commission fee.
Hat Trix sells hats and hires for special occasions. If you are searching for a special occasion hat – at short notice too, you are in the right place. Welcome! Whether for a wedding, a garden party, a Ladies’ Races Day or perhaps a civic ceremony – then you have found the exact shop for you and the door is open.
Many of our hats and fascinators remain at attractive prices and some are postage free. Take a look quickly. As you know, the majority of our stock is a one-off so when it’s gone, it’s gone. We look forward to helping you soon.
From Hat Trix you can find the perfect hat for a wedding or special occasion at a reasonable price. This is because Hat Trix sources beautiful, new-to-you hats.
Hat Trix is an eco-friendly, green business, up-cycling preloved hats of high quality! This approach makes good sense.
You will know women who have purchased a lovely hat, spent well above their envisaged budget only to find themselves wearing the hat for a few hours. “Thank you for having such wonderful hats!”, someone commented recently.
After the event their wonderful hat or fascinator goes straight into a box rarely, if ever, seeing the light of day again. What a pity that is! Such pretty and charming creations should be worn again and enjoyed.
Hat Trix services include:
- A selection of quality new-to-you women’s special occasion hats;
- A commission-based marketing service through which you can sell on your exquisite hat;
- A consultancy on hat style, colour and shape to match an existing outfit you may have, followed by sourcing a few hats from which you can choose;
- Any stock items can be hired from us on request;
- Opportunity for you to meet the team at various fayres held across the UK West Midlands.
You may be brand loyal. Some brands are dependable on quality, maintaining colour, sizing and so on. Hat Trix endeavours to choose hats with brand labels. At Hat Trix we try to source the best selection of pristine, interesting and up-to-the-minute headpieces. We strive to give satisfaction to each and every customer.
So, whatever the special occasion may be, you can spend within your budget and look lovely for less!
A selection of quality new-to-you women’s special occasion hats
Our hats are chosen with the utmost care. Hat Trix wants each customer to feel fabulous in the hat of their choice. We have a selection of charming, pretty and classic hats available here, a number of which may take your fancy.
However, if you are short of time, have a particular colour shade and price range in mind, Hat Trix can search for that special occasion hat to match your requirements.
Hats for special occasions is our business and we do enjoy searching to meet our hat-loving customers’ needs.
A commission-based marketing service through which you can sell on your exquisite hat, now no-longer required
You may have a hat, chosen especially for a special event (such as a wedding), enjoyed wearing it but now you no longer need or want it. Perhaps it is exquisite and you would like to sell it on?
Hat Trix will market the item for you; once sold, you receive the agreed price and Hat Trix receives a fee for the work undertaken on your behalf.
Should this be of interest please contact us through our customer enquiries page. The Hat Trix team will get in touch shortly.
A consultancy on hat style, colour and shape to match an existing outfit you may have, followed by sourcing a few hats from which you can choose
Wherever you live in the UK, our small team at Hat Trix, is happy to advise, by telephone, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and skype. Already customers have discussed their requirements, taken a chance and tried hats of a different shape or colour from their usual choice. And with happy results. They have stepped out with new confidence and felt ‘a million-dollars’!
Customer feedback includes:
“Hi …., I received the  hatinator today and wanted to say a big thank you. It is perfect and I cannot wait to wear it at my son’s wedding.
Thank you again for a fantastic service.”
“I have seen a really cute hat on your website … I have a hat already but think I may prefer this one.”
“What a great service you provide. I will recommend [Hat Trix] to friends and family; we always struggle with our headwear for weddings, etc!!”
Hats and headpieces for hire
This is our new service for this year. Any of our hats can be hired on request by telephone. A standard daily fee will apply plus a deposit based on the value of the item being hired. Of particular interest might be those items that have matching clutch bags which, like many headpieces, are used only once. Why not hire a duo instead.
A customer recently approached us for help and advice. Her plea was heart-felt!
“Hi Katherine, I need your assistance! We’re going to a wedding (soon). I’ve finally sorted my outfit (it’s been a nightmare) …. Can you help?”
And given the sadness of the last year, some customers seek a black hat for funerals. Hat Trix is collecting a small stock to hire on such occasions.
After a few communication exchanges and photos shared, we were able to find an item to rent that finished off her ensemble to perfection. She received many compliments and afterwards wrote to us,
“Thanks. Very pleased with your service. I appreciated the style and colour suggestions.”
Opportunity for you to meet the team at various fayres held across the UK West Midlands
Hat Trix operates from a home base in the West Midlands. We regularly attend Wedding Fayres, markets and fetes across the region. We have been in touch with faire organisers and some dates are being set. As the spring passes, Hat Trix will decide which to attend – and we look forward to meeting you there.
It is our pleasure to attend local community events to show off the Hat Trix stock and to learn what you, our customer, needs by way of special occasion hats. Our Hat Trix team looks forward to meeting you in due course.
Hat Trix has a number of items on offer. Take a look at our shop window stock, some of which benefit from free postage.
Hat Trix produces a regular pdf newsletter. You can download a previous issue by clicking here.
But for now, open the shop door, step inside and browse our selection of hats and fascinators. We are confident you will like the variety of styles, colours, fabrics and quality labels.
