Where do I find a Nepalese hat in Oregon?
November 23, 2009 3:16 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a local store that carries Nepalese hats (the kind with ear flaps and a tassle). Found lots on line, but I'd prefer to shop in person for this so I can try a bunch on before picking the pattern. REI appears to carry them, I'd prefer something along the smallish import store style. (Can one really shop local for an import item?) Location - I'm in Oregon, between Salem and Eugene, so recommendations in either city would be fine.

Best answer: My roommate bought me a kickass hat like that from Ten Thousand Villages a few years ago. It looks like they have a store in Salem called One Fair World.

If you can make it up to Portland, they sell tons of these sorts of hats at the Portland Saturday Market.

Best answer: There's a Tibetan store in Eugene called Potala Gate.

You're looking for what's called a "chullo hat." If you can't find the one you want in person, you can try Etsy, there are lots!

You can't try them on obviously, but most hats will fit most people, and there's a lot more selection of color/style than any single store would have.
