Boise Bench icon Hap Tallman is closed. You have one last chance for some Western gear

Earlier this month, Hap Tallman Stockman’s supply closed its doors for the last regular day of business.

The move wasn’t entirely surprising – the business owners told the Idaho Statesman if they didn’t find a buyer, they’d close by February. Carol Tallman, daughter-in-law of business namesake Hap, said retirement loomed large.

But February came and went, and the western wear store on Overland Rd. remained open.

But on Saturday, November 8th – the store said goodbye. After 57 years selling cowboy hats, saddles, belt buckles, Western clothing, and more, Stockman Supply hung up its spurs.

This weekend, Downs Auction will hold a Hap Tallman Retirement Auction. On November 22nd and 23rd at 10am, auctioneers will give folks a chance at hundreds of items.

From a 20′ trailer, to felt hats to jewelry and more, the parking lot at 4410 W. Overland Rd. will be a hive of activity one last time. Shoppers looking for one last piece of Hap Tallman’s wares – and a bit of history perhaps.
