Sheila’s Collection of Hats from Around The World Who deliberately sets out to acquire a collection of weird and different hats? Not I! Almost everyone has a collection of "something" whether it be key chains or snow globes. Collections usually begin with one tiny purchase that grows by leaps and bounds into a monster that takes up space and presents a perplexing dilemma, what to do with them... Our hat collection began with one hat in Africa to keep off the sun... and grew into baby hats that ward off evil in China... hats used in the fields of Africa... hats created and worn by locals daily or for special occasions in Pakistan, Mongolia and Yemen... that became just one inexpensive, large and fun collection from years of travel that brings back memories and good laughs... What do you collect?
