While there are some people who just keep adding and adding new items to their collection, this can look messy if you do not have a specific style or item that you want to focus on. Discover what you like best and make that the focus of your collection. With this method, you will have a direction and won't have to buy everything.

3. Shop online.


There are great hats in specialty shops or boutique stores but the best collectible hats are usually online. Even rare items that aren't usually available in malls and stores can be found online, with just a little bit of digging.

5. Display your collection.
