How Much Would You Pay For A Columbia Bucket Hat?

Written by

I personally don’t get the hype

A few weeks ago, CCSC held a pre-Bacchanal giveaway that featured limited-edition, free Columbia bucket hats and fanny packs. Little did they know, they would spur a storm of demand for these bucket hats that continued even after Bacchanal ended (who knew the bucket hat demographic was such a large one on campus?). Soon after, Columbia Class Facebook pages began to be populated by posts like these:

Being the opportunistic Econ major that I am, I had somehow finessed both a bucket hat AND a fanny pack from the giveaway, and I decided to take advantage of my luck to ask the Class of 2021 and my fellow Bwog staffers – what would you give for a Columbia bucket hat and a fanny pack? Here are some of the responses I received.

  • A summer finance internship
  • “I would wrench my soul back from this goddamn northeastern desert resort and commodify it to sell to you”
  • An unopposed CCSC position
  • Meal swipes
  • Weed
  • My first-born child
  • An armful of stolen oranges from Ferris
  • A spot in Prezbo’s class
  • My blossoming Adderall addiction
  • “I would pay a bowl of Diana oatmeal”
  • $3
  • $5
  • $10
  • $12
  • “I’d give a hefty dollar for the hat”
  • One Bwogger responded, “I would pay $5 to never need to hear about Columbia bucket hats ever again.”

In short, I am selling my limited edition set for a total of $50, plus all the items listed above. Please contact jenny@bwog.com if interested. Serious inquiries only.
