A Pre-Easter Update

Howdy, fez heads!

It has been about 6 months since our last update and boy were we due! When it rains, it pours as they say. We have been steadily buying some unusual and high quality fezzes to expand our shared fraternal knowledge. This update represents improvements to 8 exhibits, and includes a baker’s dozen of new fezzes!

Let’s start with the unknown – our Unknown Fezzes exhibit that is, where we’ve added two new mystery fezzes – the blue Achernar fez and a cute little Anzettes hat.

Next stop by the Veteran’s Groups area, where we’ve posted a white fez from the National Order of Trench Rats and a Past Golden Cat’s fez from the Alley Cats.

While on the topic of animals, hit the Animal Lodges area next, where we’ve constructed a new exhibit about the Lions Clubs International and snagged a rare “Silver Eagle” fez from the Fraternal Order of Eagles.

Two new fezzes can also be found in the Knights of Pythias area, one representing a bit of a mystery as to its design and the other demonstrating that African American Pythianism is alive and well.

Of course, any update isn’t complete without a couple of Shriners pieces. You can check out a rare, white Al Menah Shriners fez over in their area, after which you can behold the rhinestone encrusted glory of a Past Imperial Potentate’s fez from the Prince Hall Shriners.

But, we’ve saved the best for last. There’s a new LOTO fez in the Odd Fellow Women’s Groups section, which compliments are two newest additions to the Odd Fellows Social Groups exhibit. Yes, that’s right, we’ve scored two very rare Muscovites fezzes! There’s a new white one as well as red Royal Order of Muscovites fez, rounding out our collection from this, our favorite group.

We wish everyone a great spring and hope to see you back soon!

Wait. Another update? Woah.

I know. I know! I can hardly believe it myself. Here we are, just two months since our previous update and we have another one. You must have been very good fez fans this summer! In a rare twist, we have four new fezzes to add the museum. So, we thought “why not do an update?” Why not, indeed.

Our first updated exhibit is over in the Animal Lodges area, where you can find a new Elks fez, dating from the earliest years of the organization.

Next, swing by the Sciots exhibit to check out our new Sciots Band Member fez.

You can follow that up with a stop by the Shriners exhibit to check out the most adorable children’s souvenir fez – just like the kind you’d buy at the circus as a souvenir.

Last, but certainly not least, check out our Clandestine Groups exhibit, where we’ve added an unusual white Shriners fez… or is it? You’ll have to read the details to learn more!

We hope everyone has had a great summer and look forward to many fezzy fall adventures. Be well!

Bi-Annual Update Time

We know, we know. It’s been far too long since you’ve had an update. But, you’re in luck. Because you’re reading this. Which means we did an update. See. Now quit complaining and get reading!

After our months long hiatus, we’re back with six new fezzes added to the collection.

We’ll start off at the Shriners Exhibit, where we have added two fezzes from Irem Shriners, one being a quite unusual white fez.

In keeping with the Shrine theme, pop on by our Shrine Ladies exhibit, where we’ve added two new Ladies Oriental Shrine of North America fezzes, including another Past Grand High Priestess fez.

Completing the Shrine trifecta, we’ve also added a PHA Shriners fez from Pyramid No. 1.

Of course, we couldn’t do an update with just Shrine items, so we also added a Dramatic Order Knights of Omar piece for you to check out.

Stay cool, fezzy friends!

Happy New Year!

Surprise – we’re still alive!

We decided to start 2023 with an update to the museum, albeit a small one. Our collecting has slowed recently as there just hasn’t been as many unique pieces to snag as we’d like. But, we still continue to look and buy when we can.

Today’s update brings you three new fezzes – two from Shriners International and one from a Masonic Affinity group. The Shriners fezzes are both unique and unusual examples of white Shriners fezzes, coming from Abou Saad and Algeria Shrines, respectively. The Scandinavian Craft Club fez has been added to our collection as well – and if you know anything more about it, we’d love to hear from you!

Summer Time // Fun Time Update

It’s been over 6 months since our last update, and we know that you are just jonesing for some new fezzy goodness. Today’s update brings 11 new fezzes into the collection for you to enjoy.

Stop by the Knights of Omar exhibit to check out a new addition to this rare collection.

The Grotto display also got an update, with a sweet Big Six fez from the famous marching unit.

Pythian fans can rejoice with an update to the Knights of Khorassan area. The question is, why is the tassel red – you decide!

Two new fezzes were added to the IOOF Social Bodies exhibit – one from the OOH&P and another early AMOS example.

Last, but certainly not least, are several additions to our Shriners exhibit, including odd variations of the Shrine logo from Zamora Shriners and Moolah Shriners, as well as examples from Islam Shriners, Zem Zem Shriners, and a very special Grand Master’s fez from Jaffa Shriners.

We hope you are having a great summer and look forward to our next update!
