Drains 001

All that water has to go somewhere…

    Last week, as you may recall, I was complaining about all the rain. Well, it’s still raining and all that water has to go somewhere. I spent part of yesterday trying to get my Mom’s garage drains flowing again, so I thought that it might be good to talk about storm drains around the

Rain, Rain, Go Away…

   The old saying about the weather is that everybody complains about it, but nobody does anything. Well, if I could do something I’d stop the rain. Although it is sunny out right now, it did rain this morning and it seems like most of the last month. Oh, I know we need rain for

Tinware 001


   When we went to decorate the store window this week, my wife came up with the idea of putting some of our “tinware” on display. I thought it was a great idea as it is one of the more unique products that we offer at the store. I love tinware and I’ve always preferred

Just Another Hose Job (Repairing Them!)

  One thing that I can count on selling at the store in the Summer are garden hoses and supplies. When I think of garden hoses, I usually think of sprinklers, sometimes it seems like I spent my entire youth running through sprinklers in the Summer. You see, we didn’t have air conditioning when I

Official Key Rant!

    It’s official, I’m tired of sorting keys! Which strikes me as sort of odd, as I actually like locks and keys. It’s something about how the right key fits precisely into the lock, and if it’s cut just right the precision pins in the lock line up just right and it opens – its

Seeing Double

 For several weeks now we have had a painting in our store window that might make you think that you are seeing double. It is a very realistic painting of our hardware store titled “The Storefront”, by Angela Schall. It was a gift to me from my wife who had it done specially by her

Hill Hardware Enters The 1990’s !

 It might seem obvious to those of you that know me, but sometimes I have a little trouble keeping up with the times. I live in an old house, work with old tools and own an old hardware store. I usually fight any new things tooth and nail. Just ask my wife who has been
