About Us
Just as great museums are characterized by the beauty and significance of the art that grace their hallways and adorn their walls, there are great shops that attempt to do the same. The Glitz—with its carefully chosen European style jewels, its nostalgic and chic modern hats, its contemporary and vintage handbags, its stunning collection of delicate and colorful scarves, and its fanciful array of gifts petite—is as beautiful, as intriguing, as moving, and as inspirational as are the best of museums.
Known far and wide as Portsmouth's Premier Hat Destination, we have wonderful hats for every day and every season. Simply strolling…a day at the beach…celebrations and weddings…races and garden parties…cocktails and galas…wind and rain…we have hats, beautiful hats, to suit every woman.

Her hat, far whiter than the driven snow, was what they remembered.
