Yes, there may be other hat shops in Carmel, however, they just do not have the talented staff employed at The Hat Shop. After a late evening dinner, my husband and I stopped in since we got a friendly wave from Barrett to come in though it was late. He was delightfully engaging and had an amazing knowledge about the... More
