J J’s had been here on 5th Avenue since 1911……New York’s oldest continually running hat shop….it is the “GO TO” store for New Yorkers seeking a new hat.
I went shopping there today for my new hat…….which I will decorate for this years EASTER PARADE on 5th Ave.
My new hat………..being steamed and cleaned…….by my very cute salesman.
[ OOPS….I can’t remember his name]
I LOVE my new black wool felt……… BOLERO.
These are some of the LOVELY LADIES that will be appearing on my new BOLERO.
My Easter hat from 2018…..will be retired.

James Aguiar And Mark Haldeman have always strolled down 5th Avenue in the Easter Parade. This year their suits were white……….white feathers in their hats and jewels in their shoes.
They met 23 years ago and have always loved each other and the EASTER PARADE because it is filled with LOVE, JOY, HAPPINESS [and a lot of color].
This year they decided to GET MARRIED………before the parade started. LINDA FARGO………..fashion director at Bergdorf’s officiated at the ceremony in Christies Sculpture Garden.
50 invited guests gathered round to watch the ceremony.
They have always passed out Easter Eggs to little kids in the parade. This year their baskets were filled with golden eggs……….[spray paint]…….but they were filled with Jelly Beans.
