Had such a great time wandering the aisles. A little bit of everything in a working hardware store. Lots of items from your past to bring the memories.

Part hardware and home goods store, part museum and a whole lotta fun, this mid-19th century mercantile has something for everyone in the family. And a Christmas store upstairs in the season.

While there is A LOT of stuff for purchase, there are a lot of antiques on the upper shelves lining the store. There are photographs on the walls of how it looked back in the day. This is a neat piece of history.

It's a neat free way to spend some time. There are a few signs that tell of it's history. It's still a functioning store with lots to look at! Drop in as you pass by!

There were so many items to see that it was hard to focus! It was wonderful! There were toys from my childhood and tools for today. It was a great place to find the unique gift for that special someone!

If you're looking for a trip back in time, step into this store. They have everything from baby toys to Magnalite pots to socket wrenches! It is truly an old-fashioned general store. You can shop and learn the store's history at the same time. Definitely...More
