Head fellows


Thursday, June 14, is Flag Day, a holiday that just doesn’t get its proper respect. Celebrate in your own way by visiting for a wide selection of flags of all kinds and sizes. Look under the patriotic clothing section for the flag baseball caps; caps resembling flags of various countries are available for $18. Best of all, listed on the same site are the gay pride rainbow flag hat and the rebel Confederate flag hat.
