I really like this hardware store. A lot of the time, when a girl walks into a hardware store alone she's either ignored or stared at like an intruding alien. At least that's been my experience. But here, the staff treats you like a customer!
They're super friendly, very helpful, always know exactly where their surprisingly extensive stock is tucked away, and have never laughed at my most inane and foolish questions.
Yes, they have a smaller selection than a big box store like Home Depot, but who walks into a 20 ft by 20 ft store and expects o find 87 kinds of faucets? If you need a gadget or gizmo they probably have it. If you need the exact cabinet handle shown in Martha Stewart, probably not. But always ask - they just might surprise you! For such a small store they have a wide range of products - electric drills, paint brushes, mops and clothesline, canning jars, potting soil and pots, pest control, and lots of serious hardware stuff like pipe fittings and heavy duty hinges.
Go, even if only to say hi to their mascot dog. He's adorable.
