Amelia O'Dowd

Owner

In 2012 Amelia bought an ugly building, painted it yellow, and started selling hats. She’s a New Jersey native, lived in Boston for twelve years, and, somehow, mostly sounds like a normal person. She’s an art school drop out and Antioch University graduate, a founding member of Monkeyhouse, a Boston-based dance theater company, president of the Oregon District Business Association, and a perpetual cheerleader for Dayton.

 
 
 
 

Kali Block-Steele

STORE MANAGER

When she's not in the basement  wearing yoga pants and making jewelry, Kali is using her Cultural Studies degree from Skidmore College to throw kick-ass street parties for the Oregon District Business Association. Kali's been riding her magic carpet around the globe since she was in diapers, which makes her feel like the heart eyes kitty emoji about her hometown, Dayton. She spends most of her time raising the bar on customer service, but in her downtime she's usually hugging trees.

Gisselle Pereira-Weil

Sales Associate 

When you can't find Gisselle at Brim, you can find her on Instagram stories, where you'll learn all about the neighborhood cats and her love-hate relationship with juice. She loves wide brim hats, vintage denim, and silk robes as street fashion. 

 
 
 
 

Guinness

Shop Dog

Guinness thinks her best feature is her ears so she rarely wears a hat. She likes tug and fetch and snuggles in no particular order. If you're lucky, she'll follow you around the store, help you find a hat, and, quite possibly, sniff your ankles.
