New Hardware Store In Town


I've been wondering what's been going on. I knew who owned the building but I didn't know what was coming next

http://www.insideottawavalley.com/ne...ry-in-almonte/

I'm not a huge Lee Valley guy but I'll certainly have to pop my head in one of these days (once the crowds die down...if they leave anything behind) and see what he's got. Love old hardware...and you don;t come across NOS hardware very often

That's good luck for you. Looks like it will be a cool place.

I'm a big Lee Valley guy. I'm jealous.

What I'm mostly glad about is that it isn;t another knick knack shop. Knick knacks, "antiques" and little jam and preserve shops are the only things that survive on our main st.

Re: New Hardware Store In Town


I should get some pictures of our hardware store. It is like stepping back in time 50 years. Among the oddities is a pretty wide selection of stone hammers. I don't really love the quality (cast steel), but it's pretty amazing that they are on the shelf. I think they have hand (3 lb) size on up to 8 lb or so.
