While at Paradise City in Marlborough last month, I had a very interesting experience—there was a woman who liked one of my hats but found the feathers too dense for her. She agreed to buy it if I could thin the feathers. I agreed to sell it if she was willing to sit through the process, haircut-style. And that's how it went. She sat in my booth while I trimmed her feathers one piece at a time. That was certainly a first for me, and quite the curiosity for those passing by. She left happily with the hat, I made a sale, and the floor of my booth was peppered with maroon fuzz.
