Hill Hardware 10K

Hill Hardware 10K?  From the title of this article, you might be tempted to think that the store is sponsoring a race or something, but that’s not the reason.  In this case the 10K does not refer to 10 kilometers, but the number 10,000, items that is. First let me explain a little.  Somewhere, a

Vintage Lighting

   As you know, I’m a fan of all things vintage. Today I had a chance to work on some vintage lighting. Lots of folks are into vintage chandeliers and desk lamps or such, but this was something different, vintage fluorescent. I know I just heard everybody groan, “But I hate fluorescent lights!” Well I

Ol’ Blue (and Red) Revisited or Don’t Tempt Fate

Well I fell for it again. I’ve always had a problem with tempting fate. Not with the big stuff, mind you, like jumping out of airplanes or something like that. Only with the little things in life. So if you read my blog, or drive by the house you now know that I got a

And Now For Another Exciting Adventure…

As it is now past Groundhog’s Day, it was certainly overdue for a change in our store’s front windows’s Christmas display. We had been putting it off since all the other stores on Main Street still had their Holiday lights on too, but about three weeks after New Years’ they all took them down at

Ol’ Blue (and Red)

    A few weeks ago I mentioned in my blog about rebuilding my wrecked Ford Escape (It’s doing fine, thank you) that I used to have a 1995 Jeep Wrangler. It has been one of the most favorite cars that I’ve ever owned, and undoubtedly one of the more practical (taking in cars like the

Lake Erie Lake Effect

    We’ve really been having some weather the last few days, haven’t we? I suppose that we can’t complain too much as the two last Winters have been fairly mild. But it’s been pretty cold (it was -2 degrees this morning and that’s Fahrenheit, not that wimpy Celsius scale), and we’ve been getting snow every

Out With The Bad Air (In With The Good)

    Today’s topic came to me as I was trying to keep some of the bad (read cold) air out of the store. We have a window style air conditioner mounted in a cutout over our front door. It does a so-so job of cooling in the Summer, but in the Winter it does a

I’m Dreaming of a…

    Today, Saturday the 23rd will be the last day the hardware store is open before Christmas (sorry last minute shoppers) this year the 24th is Sunday and we’re always closed anyway. We’ve only had one good snow this year so far, so I was worried that we’d have a green Christmas this year. So

More Christmas Steamers

    Last time we discussed some of our more elaborate Christmas steamers, our model steam engines. They’re great fun, but lets face it, they’re a little too complex for most young kids. This time we’ll talk about something that, while it still requires adult supervision, is a little better suited to most little ones. Best

Christmas Steamers

    Well, there’s no denying that the holidays are here. We had several holiday shoppers in the store today, and one couple was very interested in our model steam engines. We had a nice talk about them and I showed them several of the ones that we had in stock. If you’re not up on
