When it's cold and gray, gardeners, boaters and outdoorsmen and women are dreaming of sunny days.
Protect their skin and keep them cool with sun hats from Talent-based Sunday Afternoons. The hats' UPF-50 fabric blocks at least 98 percent of ultraviolet rays, according to the company. Prices range from $34 to $45 for the locally manufactured styles: Adventure, Derma Safe, Field, Offshore, Resort and Sundancer.
Owners Robbin and Angeline Lacy designed their first hats in the early 1990s with fabric scraps from manufacturing waterproof picnic blankets, their original product. Visit the company's outlet store at 716 South Pacific Highway, Talent, or order online at www.sundayafternoons.com, which also has a locator for numerous area stores that stock Sunday Afternoons gear.
