When I was a little girl, I owned a Bedazzler, which was a contraption that alllowed you to add rhinestones to just about anything you could punch through. I decided to buy a slew of white sailor hats and bedazzle them with gems and then sell them to my friends. Needless to say, there wasn't a big market in rhinestone-laden sailor hats and I had a stack of them on my closet shelf for years until my mom finally threw them out.
