Part of the joy of fez collecting is finding new and interesting pieces to add. This site is by no means an exhaustive account of every fez known to man, but it hopes to become the primary resource for those looking for more information on fraternal haberdashery. This means that we are always looking for pieces to add to the collection via purchase or donation.
Yes, you heard right; we are willing to purchase your fezzes (as long as they would make an appropriate addition to the collections.) What do we pay for fezzes? Sadly, there isn’t much of a price guide out there, but the going rate for a fez is between $10 and $50 U.S., plus shipping. The most expensive fez in the collection only cost $130 including shipping (and it was a EXTREMELY rare and VERY OLD piece.) We will compensate as best we can for your item, based upon availability, construction, and age. We have a good idea of what fezzes we can find easily and what ones we can’t. We assure you that we will only offer what we believe to be a fair price for your item.
Let’s start with what we aren’t looking for, though. The musuem is not looking to purchase fezzes worn as parts of military uniforms or duplicates of any items currently in the collection (this means that we are generally not interested in Shriner’s fezzes) unless the item is markedly different than one we already own or has some other distinguishing qualities.
Now, on to what we want! Below is a list of fezzes we are currently seeking for our collection (fezzes already on display will not be listed here.) If you have a fez that isn’t listed on here, or anywhere esle, please contact us! You might have a real gem!
Any questions or offers for to sell your fez can be sent to the musuem via the contact section.
