There is a little women’s hat shop just West of Cleveland, Ohio.

It’s a real honest-to-goodness millinery store.  When I go to visit I’m amazed that everyone doesn’t know about Ms. St. Marie and her talents.

The store is accented with hat boxes from long-ago department stores and her creativity is everywhere. The hats are hand-made on wooden blocks, headbands and scarves are individually sewn.

The fabrics, colors, textures or ribbons are hand picked during her travels around the world.  Vintage hats are cleaned and reworked.  Watch her wrap a band or create an embellishment… she’s an artist without a paintbrush.
