The Aspen Hatter is not your ordinary hat store; it’s a place where you’ll want to hang out and enjoy a cold brew or two. Guests are immediately greeted in the cozy space with inviting leather couches, Gibsons hanging on the walls, and of course, beautiful handmade hats. Athlete, artist, and outdoorsman Chris Roberts made personal jewelry and hats solely for himself before moving to Aspen. Shortly after moving to town, Roberts decided to offer his talent to others and opened Aspen Hatter. The custom-made hats are designed with a personal touch for each client and always include a bit of Roberts’ flair. (465 N. Mill St.)
