With the summer wedding season in full swing, it's likely that you will soon invest in a hat or two. It is important to take good care of your hats by putting them in a hat box so that they don't lose their shape in the bottom of your wardrobe or get damaged by light. This article will compare the prices of hat boxes so that, whatever your budget, you can keep your hats in tip-top condition.
The hat box has become something of an interior accessory till late, and there are a wide variety of box designs and hat storage solutions. Often hat boxes are provided with hats, so you have to ask your retailer when purchasing a hat if a box is included. However, if a box is not included, Laura Ashley stocks premium decorative hat boxes, with their stylish pimlico collection currently priced at £28. Alternatively, Amazon has a great range of boxes in decorative styles, in a variety of shapes such as the round hat box, or hexagonal styles. A medium style hat box costs £11, however Amazon has a wide variety of sizes and prices available. Hat box designs (Hatboxdesigns.co.com) are the UK's largest stockist of hat boxes in the UK, with single hat boxes starting at the very reasonable price of £3.91. They have a very large range of different shaped and sized boxes, so you will almost certainly have something to suit your needs.

Vintage hat boxes
Go to The Vintage Hat Box (Vintagehatbox.com). They have a great selection of decorative and vintage hat boxes for sale, starting from $30. Ebay is also a great place to look for vintage hat boxes, with prices as low as £0.99. (Prices correct as of 13/07/2011) If you are looking for a bargain, do not be put off by buying used hat boxes provided that they are in good condition, as you may be able to get a designer box, or which you would not normally be able to afford. Remember, whenever you are buying a hat box, particularly if you are ordering online, you must measure your hat to ensure that it fits comfortably in the box.
