About us

Robert J. Carroll is a trained Milliner and Hatter who has worked in men’s hats and accessories for the last 30 years in Sydney. Being born out west, he has recently returned to his roots, leaving the hustle and bustle of the city to set up home in the lovely village of Molong, in the central west of NSW.

Molong Stores is located in a stunning 1876 heritage building in the main street. It harks back to the original store, which sold haberdashery, ironmongery and even the odd hat. With his passion for retail and design, Robert is bringing it back with a contemporary twist.

With a focus on original, artisan and hand crafted wares, Molong Stores is a premium retail space showcasing a range of local and international products, hand plucked and curated by Robert. Keen to support makers and not mass produced, the store features hand forged items from Alex the Blacksmith, hand woven panama hats from Ecuador, Berets from France and even small batch chilli condiments Aussie grown, from a Nonna’s recipe. With a hat section and a focus on the discerning man, you won’t regret making the journey to uniqueness.
