The vendors set up daily on the beach by the swim up pool bar. There is a palm hat making class one day. There are outside vendors that come during the beach party and friday night gala.
They also sell baseball style caps at the gift shop. Hope this answers your question!
Certain vendors are there everyday. They set up between the beach and the main pool.
On Tuesdays they have many vendors/craft people on the lawn in front of B block
They start to set up right before the beach party begins
A few vendors set up pretty much every day down by watersports, next to the swim up bar. The hat guy was there almost every day, and so was the gentleman selling the wood carvings. The lady selling sandals only came on Wed afternoon. The lady selling handmade straw bags was there three or four days. So you'll have no problem buying hats.
Also there were nice items in the CSS gift shop too.
there are as you say vendors at css and the man to see is my freind cecil you can sit with him and make youre own hat out of palm tree leaves or you can buy normal hats with lots of choice .
