Crafty crocheted hats

I’ve noticed beautiful hats for sale while walking around the city, and these especially struck me so I stopped to talk. Xixi, or Xiomara, is here in front of her house selling her handmade merino wool hats and headbands!

It’s her first day out on the street selling them, so I want to give her props for her amazing craftiness and entrepeneurial spirit. She put a headband on me and I have to say it looked pretty cute – for a minute I looked like a super classy purple-mohawked Olivia Newton-John, and my head was warm. I’m going to special order a cotton one from her because I’m allergic to wool!

She’s set up on Prince St, just west of Mott, and if you are interested in a hat you can email Xiomara at
