Review of Maria's Hat Shop

Maria's Hat Shop
Ranked #23 of 57 Shopping in Krakow
Attraction details
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Saw the front of street advertising "window" for this little hat shop and wandered down the entry to check if they had any hats for my husband who had been searching for a hat which would save him from the sun without losing his dignity. There was a sign on the door saying back soon and i probably wouldnt have made the effort to come back had it not been for the polish gentleman who arrived at the same time as me. Working on the premise that if the "local" was shopping here it had to be good I called back with my husband. Just as the other reviewers have commented we found a lovely lady who immediately set about finding him the right type and size of hat - she gave total attention and service without being overbearing. 10 minutes later he had 2 hats which fitted perfectly and I desperately wanted to try on the other 500 in the shop. If you think you might ever need a hat for any occasion try this place-everything from casual panamas to 1940s style pill box and full fur styles-beautiful!

If you love hats you must visit Renata!! It is not easy to find (small street in Florianska number 24.
This street has got lots of these very small side streets. We were looking for this shop, gotten mistaken by another shop where we bought a nice leather hat, and then later found the real renata shop, and we bought another hat. The lady is so friendly, she knows her shop and her customers. She does not speak another language but that did not matter at all.

My wife, daughter, brother-in-law and I stumbled on this place while strolling the old city. It's down a narrow "passage" (we'd call it a "gangway" in Chicago), but she has a display of hats behind glass on the street.
Renata is a charming little lady. Talks non stop. None of it in English. We each bought two hats nonetheless. It was one of those rare little experiences that are just perfect. Don't miss it.
