Foldable hats are large wide brimmed hats that have a stiff wire rim that can be folded into a small convenient 6 inch diameter disk. To unfold the hat simply let loose the hat and the wire rim will pop open with force. Comes in Sun and Rain versions.
Orders are processed approximately every 3-5 days. Most people receive their hats within a week to 15 days (but often sooner).
As you would expect from this kind of product, the hat sizes are one-size-fits-most. The circumference around the forehead area is about 24 inches. The forehead height is about 3.5 inches and tapers to a smaller circumference of 18 inches at the top of the head. The children's rain hat is about 25% smaller with a circumference of 21 inches at the base, tapering to a circumference of 16 inches at the top.
There is a flat rate shipping of $4.99 for all orders in the USA.
No. But some of the hats are available on amazon.com now: http://www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html?ie=UTF8&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&me=A343URECA284UP
Sorry. I don't have a physical card charging machine to process your credit card number directly. The credit card processing is handled by PayPal, which protects your privacy and I don't have to worry about security.
I don't have a mail box for business use at the moment, so I prefer not to receive checks unless you're ordering a large wholesale order (over $300 prefered).
Not all hats actually come with beads. The early batches were meant to be tied at the neck. Later batches included the chin-strap bead thingy. I don't have any spare beads.
You should receive an immediate confirmation from Paypal when you successfully place your order using Paypal. You will (probably) receive an email from Stamps.com when I ship your order. I say probably because their integration doesn't automatically select the email so I have to manually check mark it and sometimes I forget. I'm only human.
The sun hats are made of 100% cotton, except for the nylon sun hats, those are made of um... nylon. The rain hats are made of water resistent nylon with PVC backing so that it resists water leaking at the seams. The wire rim is made of stiff yet flexible galvanized steel.
I recommend you purchase one piece to see if you like what you receive. If you are not satisfied, I'm open to the idea of simply refunding your money (minus shipping and handling), don't sending anything back to me, just email me. For orders more than $25, especially bulk orders there are no returns and no refunds. So, do not order in bulk unless you know what you're getting.
