The Hat Shop, formerly Heselden Hats and general miscellany, opened in September 2013. We sell hats for all occasions - from berets and tweed caps to flamboyant feathered creations for weddings, a day at the races or perhaps a garden party. If you prefer a fascinator we have a large selection in different colours, styles and designs. If you can’t find what you want, we are very happy to discuss your requirements and see whether we can order it in for you.
The Hat Shop is also an emporium for vintage and curious goods as well as new giftware. From the functional to the frivolous, the classic to the kitsch, you will find books, retro kitchenware, gloves and scarves from other eras, bows, beads, bling and much more.
New and exciting to the Hat Shop is the Dress Agency section, a wonderful chance to buy a gorgeous something for yourself at a reasonable price.
Dress Agency reselling your designer labels. We accept clothes that are in excellent condition, laundered and ironed. We sell top end, immaculate women and men's clothes that have been freshly laundered, ironed and free from stains/ repairs.
We can accept clothes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday or by appointment only.
The Hat Shop supports the Fairtrade Foundation and two of our stockists supply us with fair trade products.
If you are a maker or enjoy sewing we have an ever changing and growing haberdashery department. You can buy a metre of old lace or trimming and dig your hands deep into a great big tin of old buttons to find that one you need or a set for that woolly cardigan you are knitting.
Come along and see us in the Hat Shop for a unique retail experience, we have a little cooker and tea set for the children to play with to allow you to have a good browse at all we have on display.
