A Triumphant Return

A photograph of The Hat Ladies appeared as part of the front page article about the return of The Charleston Cup after an eight year hiatus.  The caption read:  Members of The Hat Ladies were among the estimated 8,000 to 10,000 people attending the Charleston Cup.  To see video from the festivities, go to postandcourier.com

The Hat Ladies of Charleston 2010 Easter Promenade
Archie Burkel

On Saturday April 23rd The Hat Ladies will take to the historic streets of Charleston, South Carolina to honor the hat wearing tradition of the season. Participation for guests is by invitation only. To receive your invitation please contact Archie Burkel at 843-762-6679 or hatladies@aol.com.

Burkel is the founder of this animated group of hat lovers called The Hat Ladies of Charleston. She recently attended her first THA Hat Dinner in NYC and we got a chance to catch up with her.

"I attended both the meeting and the Headwear Association dinner for the first time, and it will not be my last. Everyone was most gracious to the new Hat (Lady) in the crowd. Best of all, the feeling that 2011 will herald the Year of The Hat was positively palpable. It was tremendously exciting to be a part of it."

We hear that Burkel found out that her maternal Grandmother was known as "The Hat Lady," and that her paternal Great Grandfather featured hats in his dry goods store – lending credence to the fact that biology is destiny.
