This week I was able to meet up with sophomore Jackson Shinkle. You may have seen him around campus wearing either a white, blue, or pink large fuzzy hat.
HerCampus: Hi Jackson, how are you today?
Jackson: I’m doing pretty great, thanks.
HC: I’ve seen you around campus wearing these hats, could you tell me a little about them?
J: Absolutely. Well, to get down to it they're warm, colorful, and last year I was able to give away some of them to people around campus.
HC: That’s so cool, they totally look warm. How did you get them, because they're not like anything I’ve seen in a store.
J: What a keen eye, no, they are not store bought. My great-aunt makes them and sends them back to school with me.
HC: That’s incredibly nice of her!
J: Yeah, it’s pretty great.
HC: So, do you just have the few hats I’ve seen around?
J: She sent a ton of hats actually.
HC: And what did you do with them?
J: I don’t keep all of my hats, I give them away. In fact, I gave about 10 away last winter alone. However, I feel like I could make a profit, so now I’m selling them for $10 a piece.
HC: And are there color options?
J: In stock right now are blue, purple, many reds, and a white.
HC: What are the benefits to owning one of these hats?
J: Good hair, good health, good life.
HC: Alright Jackson, thank you so much for this interview. Good luck with the hat business!
J: Absolutely, thank you!
