If my husband is in the middle of a project and needs something quick, he'll sometimes go to Palmer Hardware. It's amazing what all is packed in this store! As small as it looks from the outside, only half of it is devoted to hardware. The other half is appliance sales. I often browse the shelves while my husband is looking for what he needs or someone to help him. Speaking of help, don't expect much unless you're dealing directly with the Palmers. I don't know where they find the nimrods that work there but they don't know much, including how to run a register. To sum it up, Palmer Hardware is convenient if you live in Avon Park and not as busy as Bagwell's so you can usually get in and out quickly.
