For almost thirty years, Gary White has been producing custom made hats for the public, Hollywood, Broadway and beyond at the corner of Broadway and Schmarbeck Avenue. His story has popped up on BFA’s pages, and in local and national media for years. His shop is a neighborhood treasure. His art of hand making hats is also a treasure.

Yesterday, WIVB did a story on him and his craft. Watch the video…it’s amazing that this is going on here in the heart of East Buffalo. You can check ‘The Custom Hatter’ website by clicking here. If you see his shop open, stop in and say hello.
