I really really love the looks of this hat - but I have a fat head - I really wanted to bid - should I anyway?  what a dilemma!

Maggiesmom, this is from the description:

It measures 6 1/2 inches high, 9 1/2 in. wide, including the brim, and 7 1/2 in. inside the brim.  Inside circumference about 2 inches up from the open end is around 23 inches and has enough stretch that is should fit any woman.

$202.50 has been sent to MARS through Canada Helps  :eclove

The winner of the auction has said that when they receive the hat they will take photos and then sent it to MARS for inclusion in their silent auction.  WOW - this hat will just keep giving and giving  :biggrin6

Thank you everyone - This is just so wonderful   :heart
