Been there many times - got my Homburg there! :) Have you been to Roxanne's Hats in Fort Langley? Good selection, but not very knowledgable staff. Anyway, Roxanne's is where my Fedora came from in the first place.
Anyway, thanks for telling me the price; she wouldn't when I was in. Gave me the "well I'd have to see what it needs" line, which makes me wary of it. She also confidently told me she could handle my silk top hat, and, when I asked, specifically "what would it be to replace the underbrim and brim binding?" got that same answer... not that I was seriously considering letting anyone in North America work on my topper anyway.
