Jennie Hart Robinson
Jennie was inspired to create something fun and unusual for a large gathering of family and friends celebrating her parent's combined 70th birthdays. On the wings of inspiration, she had a thought of doing something a little off the beaten track, but yet could be enjoyed, laughed about, and could be made by her own hands using recycled, found and otherwise weird objects.
After the party, when Jennie was deluged with more orders for her "party hats", she quickly realized what she had done and began her rollicking adventure into the world of creating her paper hat business. Educated as an art teacher, Jennie began feverishly filling orders for hats with brims, molded hats, hats with birds, lichen, feathers and on and on.
Each individually crafted hat is made by Jennie - a true expression of her daily celebration of life and laughter. Once you don one of her hats, happiness, laughter and compliments are inevitable!
