The Blog

Time To Blast Off

It’s been a couple weeks since I wrote anything for the blog, but we’ve been pretty busy, literally. In spite of the “stay-at-home” conditions here, the store, which has “essential business” status has been open and busy the whole time. Then when Ohio started to reopen a couple weeks ago I thought things would start

Let’s Get Something Straight

I promised last time that I would wrap up the fascinating mower story last week. Those of you scoring at home may have noticed that I didn’t. It’s not that I was lazy writing the blog, it’s that I didn’t get the mower finished ’till yesterday (boy, is that grass long!). As I was saying

Save The Oil And Change The Mower

You might not have heard the old saying, “It might be time to save the oil and change the car,” but it might have been appropriate yesterday. It’s supposed to mean that whatever you are working on has about reached the end of it’s useful life. That is about the case for my small push

The Tip Of The Iceberg

When it comes to tips, there are several kinds. There are the bookies’ tips, beef tips and noodles, and of course the tip of the iceberg. Here at the hardware store though, when folks come in and ask me if I have any tips I always answer the same way, “ Buy low and sell

What’s New

Spring is officially here now, although a couple days ago when I got home, Mary Anne said, “how much snow are we supposed to get tonight?” I replied it’s not actually snowing, the super forecast weather on the computer says it’s raining. As we watched the snow flakes drift down it occurred to me that

Cutting the Cheese

Well, another week of this mess has come and gone. We’re still open here at the hardware store and rumor has it that things are going to start to transition back to normal starting at the end of the month. I saw someone online quote Winston Churchill from just after the Battle of Britain (look

What’s New

Well, we’ve survived another stay at home week here in Burton. Of course I’ve still got to come in to keep our essential hardware store open. Mary Anne does most of her work on a computer, so she is able to work from home pretty effectively, but I haven’t figured out how to sell hardware

Victory Garden

Well, it’s been a week or so since Ohio got it’s stay at home order from the Governor, but we’re still here. Hardware stores, of course, fit under the essential businesses clause in the business shut-down order. Folks may be sheltering at home, but they’ve still got to maintain that home. As I guessed earlier,

We’re Open / What’s New

First of all, to save you a few unnecessary phone calls, Hill Hardware is still open. Many places are closed starting today under the Governor’s order to help control the Corona virus. Hardware stores are considered essential businesses, though. Even with folks staying home, home repairs and maintenance still go on, and sheltering at home

Let’s Go Truckin’

Today I got a real treat. I was trying to get more steam engines in to sell, and I came across a Mamod Steam Wagon model. It came in the mail yesterday and I got to unpack it this afternoon. The Mamod Steam Wagon is one of my favorite live steam models ever (of course
