The 2020 Kentucky Derby is now being held on 5 September 2020. Click here to view our revised Derby hat and fascinator shipping cut-off date.
If you’re wanting to buy a Kentucky Derby hat from us for the big day on 2 May 2020, then below is some super important information.
As we’re based in New Zealand (aka bottom of the earth), our Derby hats can take a little longer to get to you than they would if they were from your local store…
We put all our Derby hats on international courier (and shipping is FREE!), so they usually get to the United States in about 5-7 working days from the date we dispatch them.
BUT bear in mind our Derby hats are handcrafted by us, so they may need some finishing touches before they’re ready to be packaged up for you – AND we’re only a small business (which we’re also juggling full time jobs & a family around too) – so you need to bear in mind that while the SHIPPING time is an estimated 5-7 working days (and we all know delays can & do happen with anything you post), that you add our Derby Hat dispatch times on top of this (usually our dispatch times are 1-2 working days).
Just to throw something else into the mix, here in New Zealand we celebrate ANZAC day on 25 April (and so this year, Monday 27 April will be recognised as a public holiday) – this means post offices and our studio WILL BE SHUT on that day and will add an additional day into the shipping mix.
SO, what date do we suggest is the absolute latest that your order your Kentucky Derby hat by?
We would say you need to buy your Kentucky Derby hat by no later than Monday 20 April 2020.
Happy Derby hat shopping ladies!
