The Life of a Traveling Merchant

The life of a traveling merchant is a fascinating life to live.  As we continue to grow and expand Hattast-ique we continue to push ourselves and see what we can do.  This includes booking more events where we get to meet and see our awesome customers.  It is here we get to connect face to face and you can physically see what we have to offer.  This life on the road means we are home, then we are on the road, and then we are home again.  It makes us appreciate everything we see and all the people we meet.  Also it means we get to appreciate home with new eyes each time that we pull in the drive after a time away.  Sometimes we are only home for a day before we are back at it again.  Other times there are a few weeks between shows.  This time we are gearing up for the next 6 weeks on the road with back to back events. 

We look forward to seeing everyone at the following events:

Bikes, Blues, & BBQ in Fayetteville, Arkansas September 20th - September 23rd

Street Vibrations Motorcycle Rally in Reno, Nevada September 27th - October 2nd

Rally in the Alley in Las Vegas, Nevada October 4th - October 8th 

Biketober Fest in Daytona, Florida October 19th - October 22nd 

Panama City Beach Fall Rally in Panama City Beach, Florida October 25th- October 29th 

There is a lot of work that goes into preparing for a schedule like this.  We have to make sure we have enough inventory in stock to make it through those long weeks on the road.  We have Zack and Luke in the Hattast-ique work room right now making hat bands and steampunk goggles.  We have all of our top hats, cowboy hats, and custom made steampunk hats all packed up and in the trailer, ready to hit the road first thing Monday morning.  

We love when we are on the road like this.  It's like a six week long cross country road trip with your favorite people in the world.  We will get to see the beautiful changing of the season from the west coast to the east coast and every state in between.  This is what the traveling merchant life thrives off of, we get to change venues, meet the awesome people that come and work at each of these events, and we take our love of the business with us wherever we go.  We hope to see you at one of our events in the next few weeks!  So if you are in the area, stop by and say hi.
