The Cowboy Hat Book features an impressive array of cowboy hats, showcasing the wide variety of styles, colors, and fabrics used to create the cowboy hat, now a symbol of America and western culture that is recognized all over the world. Beginning with a brief history of the cowboy hat, the authors go on to explain the building of the perfect hat, its care and feeding, hat etiquette, hat hair, and more. Beautiful photos of real cowboys and movie cowboys sporting their trademark hats illustrate how creases, brims, shapes, and trims are unique to the individual who wears each hat. The Cowboy Hat Book celebrates the history and importance of this unique piece of clothing that hasn't fundamentally changed in more than 100 years.
Originally a Haight-Ashbury shop in the ‘90s, Happy Trails Home was a much beloved American junk shop with vintage housewares and a range of pop culture goods. After a stint as a buyer at Hot Topic and working as a home decor product developer for many years, the owner Gretchen decided to reinvent the shop into what it is today. Not to worry, the shop has the same happy-go-lucky atmosphere and yes, FREE Bazooka bubblegum with every purchase!
