Love the store, decent deals to be found.
Nice selection but very few in size "large".... I assume that's the bulk of the population...
This store is a hidden treasure with wonderful customer service. Great hat selection but what you see is what you get when it comes to sizes.
Great hat selection and customer service!!
I have been meaning to get to Bollman's outlet for a while now and I finally made the trek. And it's well worth it! The building itself isn't that large. A simple cinder-block building, about 40' wide by 20' deep.
It does get terrific daylight (useful when you want to judge the true color of a hat without needing to walk outside with it), and there are mirrors all around to take a look at yourself.
Remember that it *is* an outlet, so while the prices are dramatically better than a traditional hat store, you will have some frustration in that you will pick up the wrong size hat a number of times until you find that style in your size, -or- maybe you *won't*! (remember, this is an outlet!)
The clerk offered some advice when I asked for her opinion, which was appreciated. For instance, two of the three Bailey of Hollywood Polypropylene hats I purchased for Summer came in my size in either a Trilby or Pork Pie, but we both agreed that I looked better in the Trilby.
Not all of the hats were synthetic, I don't want to give you that impression -- there were plenty of felt fedoras, wool hats with or without ear flaps for winter, tweed and wool flat caps, straw Panama and cowboy hats, etc., etc. Not too many hats for women, but as the clerk explained, their inventory across the board changes a few time per month to a few times per week.
Hat prices are quite reasonable; most are outlet-priced at $25-49, with the possible exception of the ones behind the clerk by the register. Winter beanies with pom-poms were between $15-18.
If you are serious about your hats, plan to spend a few *HOURS* poking around. Best bet is to bring a list of what you already have, so you know where you have holes in your collection. Or take photos of them on your phone beforehand.
If you want to get in a meal before or after you shop, I suggest Shady Maple Smorgasbord or Pancake Farm (it's a diner), both are about 10 miles/15 minutes away.
Bollman Hat Factory Outlet is also just 6 miles, 12 minutes from The Green Dragon (a famous indoor/outdoor flea market) -- but remember that the Green Dragon is *only* open on Fridays.
