About Us

Lid Wear owner Sarah Goldenberg, aka Goldie, handcrafts beautiful and practical hats for every walk of life and occasion. Goldie hitchhiked her way to Seattle from Washington, DC in 1978, landing in the Emerald City with just $10 worth of dimes in her pocket. She fell in love with the city and has been here ever since.

As a milliner (or hat maker), Goldie crafts each hat by hand, making an array of different sizes and colors to complement just about any face shape out there. She’s self-taught mainly, priding herself on her ability to help customers pick out the right style and size for them.

Lid Wear hats are durable and made for travel, golf, boating, walking the dog, protection from the elements, everyday wear, and even dress-up!
