The Place of Hats in Advertising


Small craft shows are part and parcel of life in central Florida. You can buy a wide variety of items, some of which are hand-made. Kiosks line the avenue offering up clothing, license plate frames, rugs, paintings, jewelry, pet goodies, address signs, guitars, bird houses, etc., and hats.

What you see above is a small sample of the hats available at one kiosk.  Buy one of these hats and you can advertise your faith in our military forces, in the police, in the United States, in the K-9 dogs used by the military and police, in your golf game, in your Harley Davidson and Jesus Christ at the same time, in god with whom all things are possible, and in the Bible verse, John 3:16, which some think is crucial if heathens are going to get into their paradise in the sky.

When they die.

That 'Jesus/Harley Davidson' one must be a best-seller!

Some of these you will never be able to buy in my neck of the woods, that's for sure.

I guess they covered all the bases. Didn't see a Make America Great hat there, maybe they're ran out :)

I have a couple of baseball hats- the lettering on both is subdued and generally matches the colour of the rest of them, and in both cases are state names. That's it.

Stuff like this just looks garish.

Certainly a wide variety here!

Michelle said...

Quite an array of hats!

Meet John at 3:16 for a golf game?
(Sorry. I couldn't resist.)

Hats hats hats---I am surprised you didn't have a cute poem for us.
Now try harder.

My yellow Rose IS the Yellow Rose of Tejas. Tell you son.
Thanks for thinking it is purty.

I understood “John 3:16” by your explanation. In Japan, it's funny but there are some people wearing a T shirt or a baseball cap with English words without knowing the meaning simply because it looks cool. Would you like to wear “What an idiot” T-shirt? Maybe it would work as a reminder to the wearer?

These hats would not have much success here... :)

I am going to have to check to see what John said in 3:16.

I probably would walk right past here and never see this amazing collection. ;-)

I think I'll pass on these, Lowell!

You have made the picture all the more interesting with your commentary! Loved it!

No Trump, Clinton or Sanders.....
I can see several that I would have charged quite a lump of money to wear.
Well, I guess it is a place to find unique messages:)
