WHAT TO EXPECT AT MARKETS/EVENTS:
At events you can get your head measured, try on every style in most sizes and there is usually a selection of earrings and waste not want not products made from the cap offcuts. Giftcards are also available.
Markets are tricky to plan as a slow fashion business, I try to create as little waste as possible, whilst creating a balance between bringing enough samples for you to figure out which size you are. To balance this out I now offer an event only discount if you can't find your size at the market and need to order one to be made up afterwards.
So you know what to expect, size wise I normally bring each colour of basic cap in SM, M, LG & XL.
