The Merchandise Mart has hosted the One of A Kind show for years. This year they featured 600 juried artists. It was a pleasure to see almost all of them, but especially the people with hats.
Starting with Chicagoans with hats we have Jenny Pfanensteil of Forme Millinery:

Other millinery fun:

Etsy had a pavilion with 30 artists, the hat world revolving around Allison Lyndes of Alli Cat Crafts. As a member of Milliners of Etsy I can attest to the quality of workmanship and the person creating these treasures. Allison is from CO, and this was her first participation here, with grand success. Her display made use of the limited space of 5 feet allotted to an artist in this pavilion. Using three doors, the hats had a great vertical visual impact. “Home: A Place to Hang Your Hat.”
