“I know there is strength in the differences between us. I know there is comfort, where we overlap.” Building a Community Since the beginning of Hattast-ique, we have always had a strong sense of community. We understand that the struggle of being on the road, living out of a suit case, working events day and night (sometimes as long as 15 hour days), is easier when you have a good support system behind you.

We are finally home! The past six weeks have come and gone quicker than I expected. We have been every where from Arkansas to Nevada and Colorado to the Florida shore line and all the states in between!

Over the past three years we have met the most amazing families, other small businesses, from traveling and working events. The life of a traveling merchant has it's freedoms but as with everything, comes at a prices as well....
