Closing Notice

As I announced earlier this year, I plan to retire from daily business operations this year. While I had hoped my companies might continue to operate under new ownership, as of this writing there has been little interest shown by any legitimate potential purchaser. In the event that changes, this announcement may be subject to change.

I can now announce that the Hatcrafters, Inc. factory will close effective December 20, 2019. Hatcrafters will cease accepting new orders as of December 6, 2019, and will complete all remaining orders placed on or before that date.

For those of you whose headwear needs rely on the antique machinery that is unique to our manufacturing processes, I am happy to consider reasonable offers to purchase all or part of that equipment, and can provide some training on its usage and maintenance. Transport and training would be at the expense of the buyer.

Importantly, please note that Hat Cap Exchange and will continue to operate independently for some time, making available both Hat Cap Exchange and Hatcrafters in-stock items. Hat Cap Exchange merchandise will also continue to be available on Amazon and eBay.

I want to thank each and every one of you for more than three wonderful decades of your business. I will continue to the best of my ability to be available to assist you in finding the headwear you need, even if those items are no longer available from Hatcrafters or Hat Cap Exchange.
