In Reply to: Real Hardware Shops - Are there any left? posted by Kimberly on April 18, 2019 at 22:54:20:
I feel your frustration. However, I have found what might be a great option to a real hardware store. Here in Montana City, there is a cafe called, "The Hardware Cafe". It is part hardware store and a very good cafe.
Sooo, when they do not have what you need, you can go sit down, have a very good breakfast, and, order a "Breakfast Beer",, Yup, that is right, they serve Breakfast Beer.
And then, you can "Cry in it"...
