  1. Can anyone out there please help me find Alina the hat lady who owned our “only” hat store in the mission.

    She had a store on 14th and Valencia right next to the Triumph dealer. Today there is a sunglass store there with refurnished wooden floors (of course).

    I wish to contact her since I want to buy more hats if possible. At the very least please get me an email so I can thank her for eight maybe nine years of selling hats to us!
