My love for hats started at a young age...

My hat journey started when my daughter and I created derby hats from scrap material: plastic yogurt lids and felt. Since then, I have found a passion for sinamay and flowers made from feathers. 

I am grateful for the love I have from my husband and four children. I hope to share my love for derby fashion with the local community. When I am working, I am accompanied by my two golden retriever children, Rudy and Weezy.

"Frances" is in honor of my grandma, "B" stands for my initial, and "Hats" are just fabulous!
