Flipside Hats Interview

Kori Giudici, founder of Flipside Hats creates handmade creations that are gorgeous and flattering on everyone. Stop by their booth at our Winter show to find a great cold weather accessory!
UCU: Pick a song that gets you in creative mood or you think would make a great addition to a "UCU Winter 2010 Soundtrack".
Flipside Hats: Song: Robyn, "Bum Like You" or "Konichiwa Bitches". It gets me moving!

UCU: What’s one thing you wish you had known at your first craft show?
Flipside Hats:
To not be attached to the outcome; enjoy the show!

UCU: If you have pets, introduce them and tell us a bit about them!
Flipside Hats:
Miss Ting, the most beautiful, pure white fluffy kitty with blue eyes. She's a bit remiss, but oh so lovely.

UCU: What item are you most excited to be offering at UCU Winter 2010?
Flipside Hats:
We have several new lines in recycled and organic fabrics to introduce in addition to our classic P-town caps. My new fave is the DRIVER CAP, a hip rendition of the old school stand-by. For the ladies, it's detailed with funky flowers for a sexy tom-boy appeal. So fun! And among my other new styles, I love the FIXIE CAP, an urban twist on the cycling cap in fabrics that you can wear around town easily.

UCU: What day of show traditions are you bringing to UCU 2010?
Flipside Hats:
Always treat myself to a great breakfast and get there with enough time to settle in.

UCU: If you could sum up your work in one word, what would that be?
Flipside Hats:

UCU: What gift are you most excited to give this year?
Flipside Hats:
I bought about a dozen pairs of the coolest socks you can imagine from the SOCK MONSTER in Ballard, and I can't wait to give them out!

UCU: What are you nibbling on as the snow falls this winter?
Flipside Hats:
Well, I sure hope the snow falls! And when it does, I'll be nibbling on homemade ginger cookies and peanut butter peace bombs. YUM!

UCU: Favorite handmade item you have? It could be made by you, gifted to you or something you picked up.
Flipside Hats:
I have a 10 month old son, and although he's not technically "hand-made", he is home-made! and he's my favorite by far!
