Don't go to this place. I bought a nice hat and they re-used my credit card informations for another payment 1 week after my departure from NY. Since then, no answers from the shop. PLACE TO AVOID.

I had once looked forward to going into this shop, thought it was charming and the product carefully chosen and made but last night was the absolute last time I will ever step foot in there or say any glowing reviews of this shop.
The owner was on the phone angrily talking to her insurance company, and when she hung up I made some light reference to her frustration and she was extremely rude to me. I can understand being frustrated but she definitely lost her composure and in her place of business it was totally inappropriate to lash out on a customer. There are other places in the city to shop for what she carries and the prices, quality and most importantly customer service is much, much better.

This store has a large selection of original and creative headwear covers the walls in this tiny East Village hat shop. Cowboy hats covered in a patchwork of brown and black fur and other interesting items line one wall. Across the way, dressy fedoras and different designs are displayed.

I have been a loyal customer of Barbara Feinman Millinery for years. Barbara and Karmen are artisans whom one might associate with an earlier era. Considering the labor, love, and materials that go into each hat, they are worth the price, especially when compared with similar but far more expensive hats uptown. The service is patient and friendly -- trust them to know what works on you -- whether you end up buying or are merely browsing. The jewelry is fashion jewelry, as they will tell you and as anyone with any intelligence would quickly deduce from the price tag. It's lovely and fun, but if you want real gold better go to Tiffany's or Cartier and be willing to pay their prices!

Pros: High quality, handmade hats and attentive, knowledgeable service

I also bought "gold" here that turned my skin green. I wasn't allowed to return or exchange it without the receipt even though I talked directly to the woman who sold it to me. I asked to speak to a manager, only to find out that this deceitful woman is the owner! I wish this review had been around before I had made the purchase.

Pros: It looks cute from the outside

Cons: quality of product and customer service

.

Purchased an item here, asked the salesperson if it was gold, and lo and behold, after very light wear it turned her neck green. I brought it back not for a refund or even credit, but to show the proprieter that this line is not very high quality at all. She was immediately terse, "Well I don't know what you want me to do, I'm not taking it back, some people's skin...etc, etc..." True, skin does make that happen, WHEN IT IS IN CONTACT WITH POOR QUALITY MERCHANDISE marketed as jewelry. I should have known better, when I was there initially to buy a gift, she and another saleslady were making fun of a phone customer from England, calling her names, in my presence, a potential customer! But I gave it a shot anyway. As I said, I didn't expect much since I didn't trust my instinct, but the rote way in which she handled or rather mishandled the situation leads me to believe she's quite used to dissatisfied customers, and doesn't really care anymore. Asking the customer what she should do? I assumed the retailer would have a better grasp as to how she'd like to portray her style of business when faced with a concerned customer. Again, I only wanted to bring her attention to a defect in a line she was carrying, but I guess this place has other problems.

Pros: 7th Street is nice....

Cons: Just read the review.
