Hatpins: A Brief History

2007: Reghan’s Hats opens up as a set of shelves displaying simple hats in a Norwegian furniture shop in September. Shortly afterwards, Reghan’s Hats moves to Skye Qi’s vintage village and finds a temporary home there in a rental shop.

2008: In May, Reghan’s Hats reopens as Hatpins in Caledon, thus meeting Miss Reghan’s first goal of purchasing a parcel. Hatpins would move from parcel to parcel in Caledon as it got bigger.

2009: Hatpins moves to Haute Couture sim under the aegis of Moxie Polano.

2010: Hatpins moves from Haute Couture to a long-time place on Venus sim. Briefly, clothing is added to the shop, but doesn’t stay. Accessories, however, start to extend beyond hats and include scarves, spectacles, and jewelry.

June 2010: Jenica Landar becomes the blogger for Hatpins.

2013: Hatpins destroyed by fire. Deliberately. Shop closes down for good at that point. But…

2014: Miss Reghan finds herself making hats again. Opens a new store in an attic-type sort of building. Calls it Hatpins but for the most part, ignores its existence.

2015: Hatpins makes a definite return, and now lives on the Scott sim. The inventory of the shop is not what it was in its heyday, but it’s being worked on
