Hats, Hats and More Hats
The Brass Rooster in Bay Views offers hand-made hats and classic and modern styles.
Utilizing a unique blend of vintage and modern styles, John and Kate McLaughlin opened The Brass Rooster in 2011 to considerable success. In a time of stagnant economic growth, they are finding opportunity in selling quality, American-made hats. They boast a wide variety of brands but are also launching their own, custom-made line of hats. The store stands at 2470 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. in Bay View. Our sound slide captures the whole story.
