Meet The Shopkeeper

My name is Robert, I am the shopkeeper and also a trained milliner and Hatter. I have worked in the industry for 30 years. Being born out west I have returned, leaving the hustle and bustle of the city and set up home in the lovely village of Molong in the central west of NSW. We opened our doors in September 2021, phase 1 of the restoration project. 

Molong Stores is located in a stunning 1876 heritage building in the Main Street. It harks back to the original Molong Stores, which sold ironmongery, haberdashery and even the odd hat, with my passion for all things hand made and retail, my aim is to bring it back with a twist.

With a focus on artisan and hand crafted, ethically sourced wares, the Stores is a premium retail space showcasing a range of local and international products that I have personally picked and curated. I’m keen to support makers not mass produced, the shop features hand forged items from Alex the Blacksmith, hand woven Panama hats from Ecuador, Textiles and hand made Providore products.

With a hat section and a focus on the discerning man, you won’t regret making the journey to uniqueness.
