Magar Hatworks

 Our first delivery of impeccably crafted handmade hats from the incomparable Leigh Magar arrived at Old Road Mercantile this week. 

 Each hat is sculpted by Leigh on one of the 400 vintage wooden hat forms on display at her charming and eclectic, rick rack, feather filled, Cannon Street atelier (recently featured in the June issue of Martha Stewart Magazine).

 Magar's millinery talents have been appreciated and celebrated by blogs and magazines everywhere. 
Accolades from Country Living Magazine (Entrepreneur of the year), a collection at Barney's, and celebrity clients like Elvis Costello, are just a few of the interesting bits you'll find with a quick google search. 
Or, better yet, visit the Magar Hatworks website for the can't miss, put a smile on your face, Charleston favorite: "Hat Dance"

Magar Hatworks custom collections for Lily and Old Road Mercantile are now available for purchase online at
