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.
