Founded by Chris Charlton, also known as the 'HAT MAN' by many, he began selling on eBay 4 years ago. Chris wanted to focus on being known not only for his competitive pricing, but most importantly his quality.

Chris has become known as "The Hat Man" by his customers and fellow sellers at Tynemouth Market. He specifically focused on Peaky Blinders style caps at the beginning, but has expanded over the years and now sells a wide range of headwear for men, women and kids. 

He quickly established a successful business and realised with his knowledge of hats and caps; This could become a big thing. After introducing global shipping on eBay, he soon realised the global potential when Hats Plus Caps were beginning to send hats all over the globe and has currently sent hats to over 50 countries just from his eBay store alone. After rapid expansion, Chris could no longer manage alone, therefore his fiancée Denise Harrison began working within the business and has become a vital part of the success.

Our mission is to expand even further and reach more customers than ever through our website hatspluscaps.com, but maintaining our high level of service and quality which we have provided since the beginning.

As a family run business, Chris' and Denise's motivation is driven by the positive feedback that they have received from their customers. And they strive to maintain these high standards. With an around 18,000 sales the past year, they maintained 99.9% feedback on eBay.

We welcome your feedback on our new website to help us to continually improve. Thank you to our loyal customers for their support over the years which has made all of this possible. 

We hope you love the site, as much as we have seeing it come to development.

Yours sincerely,

The 'HAT MAN' Chris Charlton
