What we are looking here in trice area? We have an abundance of some old-fashion hardware stores like this one here in Silvertone. And what I like about them, these stores have an abundance of some products that are really tough to find at other places. Why don’t we go inside right now and take a look.
Now, check this out. Look at this. Now, here is something that everybody needs to have and you are not going to find any place else. Flypaper, I had a problem with flies at my house recently and instead of me running around with a fly sweater, I just used some of this.
Now, here is another thing that is really cool on some of these hardware stores. You can find a wide assortment generally of old fashioned-type oil cans. They are really great. The old fashion ones that make sounds like that. They got thumbscrews, and oil cans. Everybody needs one to oil their run water and all kinds of other things.
Now, another thing I like at some of these hardware stores, you are not going to find at other places corks. Perhaps you need to stuff up some type of bottle. You can get corks all of different sizes, giant corks, medium size, and even small-sized corks.
How about real thin, ultra thin copper or stainless steel wire? You can get it at the old-fashioned hardware stores. They have got it. It really comes in handy. Clothespins, you know, you do not think people use clothespins. Well, there is a lot of handy use this form. You can find them at the hardware stores.
One of the best things I like too is well, how about stainless steel, nuts, pokes, screws and washers. Really handy when you need to do something outside and you do not want to have a rust on a fastener.
You know, one of the best I look at one of the old-fashioned hardware stores is that no way check out. Hey Donald, I am ready to go, man.
Alright, you seem to find everything.
