The Owl Hat

Post by TheWhiteShadow on Wed Feb 22, 2012 11:14 am

Friends, I'm going to ask for something simple, and hardly life-changing. My niece's birthday is next week, and she has asked for the replacement for a hat that she loved...and lost. It was only available at a specific store chain, and my local store has clearanced them out. I'm off of work for a few days after tonight, and I'm willing to travel great distances to get one if they're still available. It would actually mean a great, great deal to her.

So, yes, I'm asking for prayer in finding a specific children's hat. I figured that God cared about things like wine at a wedding, a lost axhead, and feeding sparrows...why not something so simple as this? My niece would be overjoyed if she received this on her birthday next week...

Thanks, everyone.
-Mark

Amen~I am in agreement hoping you find this hat!!

Mark Have you looked on amazon.com or ebay?? I find often times items that have been clearanced out are sold on these sites. I cant speak for everyone, but so far I have had great experiences with both...especially with discontinued items. Amazon has 1 and 2 day shipping as well (with an extra fee~but who knows, it may be worth it saving on gas $)...ebay in my experiences have taken a little longer to deliver.


Ephesians 2:8,9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Thanks, everyone for your willingness to agree in prayer with me for something like this! :)

I did spend a little time looking at eBay and Amazon the other day, but I was pressed for time. I'm off tomorrow (today), so I actually plan to spend a great deal of time searching. You have no idea how delighted she would be if her lost hat was replaced.

Astra, to answer your question, the hat looks like this: http://media.nj.com/gloucester_voices_impact/photo/10346635-large.jpg

I would type the name into the search box on google and she what pulls up.

Love in Jesus,

Hi Mark,
I am standing in agreement with you, in Jesus' Name, for your niece to get this hat (very cute one!!) replaced!

Just a thought, since you have such a clear picture of this hat, as a backup plan, you can find someone who is good at knitting and ask them to make one just like that. These hats are very popular and I imagine it won't be hard to find someone who can make a very good quality job.
When my step-son was little (5 or 6) I had to do a "switch" like that with his toy clown. He did not part with it day or night and wore it out so badly that I had to basically make a new one practically identical to the old one. He never noticed it was a different one (just that one day it was old and the next one it became new again :-) ) He was very happy! I had to do it about 6 times before he grew up enough to put it away :-)

My two cents...the design you posted looked crocheted. If you know anyone who crochets a lot, he/she could likely make one without too much time or effort.

Thanks, everyone!

I spent a HUGE amount of time online and on the phone with stores about this item. I'm still waiting to hear back from an e-mail I sent through their website. Anyway, I found the exact same hat on eBay, except that it is a different color. I'll wait until tomorrow to see if I hear anything. If not, I'll probably go with the eBay one. Whew! What a lot of work for a hat! :)

Just for the sake of closure, the Brown Owl Hat has arrived in the mail. I'm not that disappointed that I couldn't get the exact same color as the original, and everything else about it is the same. My mother shared a conversation she had with my niece at the start of the week.

Apparently, my niece said to her, "I really hope that I get another owl hat for my birthday."

My mom responded, "Really? What color?"

She said, "It doesn't matter. I'd just like another owl hat."

Good. Because you're getting a brown one. :)
And, incidentally, I ended up getting it on eBay from a place in my state. The seller's name was freefromsin. I'm confident that God did help me with this.

Bless you all,
Mark
