Shabby French Hat Stands

This is a small tour through 
the new hat stands
that I have just finished.

My plans are to have them for sale
in my booth next spring.

NO. 1

They are priced between $19 and $24.
Some have wooden bases, other have bases made of metal and ceramic.

No two will ever be alike.



NO. 3


The lovely graphic used on my hat stands
 are from The Graphics Fairy 



I believe that before you can do anything, 
you must start first with a dream. 
So I’m dreaming about having a booth by 
next spring.

Please follow my new blog and dream with me. 


(I will be posting new items as I finish them
get them ready for market)


  1. They are FABULOUS!! Really cute!! The best part is you are having fun, I can tell, how smart to get everything ready now....And that puppy priceless!


    1. Hello Carol, Thank you so much. I was particularly interested in your opinion on this project. You have an amazing gift and I value your insight.
      Connie :)

  2. Connie,
    Your hat stands turned out looking gorgeous. I'd be thrilled to park my hat on any one of them. And your "Helper" is just adorable as can be. Have fun getting all your items ready for your booth next Spring. Have a great day!

    1. Hello Jana, It has been a while . . . I am so happy to hear from you. Thank you so much for this lovely comment. You have a great day, too, Connie :)

  3. Hi Connie--these hat stands are fabulous, every single one!! You will do very well with them, I'm sure. Thanks for your visit to my blog and for your sweet comments. You asked about my "blossoming box"; I did make it from scratch, starting with 3 sheets of cardstock. Once you start gluing papers to the front and back of each "page" it actually becomes quite sturdy! :) Thanks again, have a great weekend! ~Lorraine ♥♥♥

    1. Hi Lorraine, I love your blossoming box and now that I know that you made it from scratch I love it even more. Thank you for the wonderful comment about my hat-stands. I really needed to hear it. Connie :)

  4. Oh, Connie, these are not hat stands they are pieces of art! These will be big sellers as there are a lot of hat collectors who would a display like this, though I would hate to cover them up. You can borrow some of my tool caddy ideas if I can borrow some of your hat stand ideas. Deal?

    1. Absolutely! We just might make a good team . . . you take my ideas and I'll take yours. They say that two heads are better than one. I'm dreaming about doing a booth, but it's a little bit scarey.
      I might make all this stuff ( time and money) and no one will like it. Thank you for the encouraging word, I really needed to hear it. Connie :)

  5. Ohh I love these! Don't know if I'm inspired to buy one or inspired to make my own! Hmmmm...
