I live in the old section of town with all Victorian homes and a 110 year old hardware store. It has not changed since it opened so all my neighbors shop there if they need to replace something.It has all kinds of stuff you just cant find anymore. Today I was standing behind my neighbor Mary as she was talking to Ken the owner about an antique entry set he had on sale for $300.00. It was antique and had come off a house in town that was just tore down. Finally she held up an old broken hinge and said her husband sent her down to see if Ken had a replacement that matched. Ken went in the back room and in about a minute yelled out "Mary do you want a screw for this hinge?" Mary thought for a minute and replied "No but I will for this entry set" Thats why women should never go to hardware stores.

An entry set is the door knobs,dead bolt lock,door knocker,and this one had the mail slot. [At least that is what I have always called it.]

Now that was funny! Sounds like something I would say! We don't have an old hardware store here, but there is an old drug store/apothecary not too far across the state line in Indiana that still makes all there own compounds. When they make vanilla(like the kind you use to bake with) that whole part of town smells like vanilla. The best part is I can buy a huge bottle of it (real vanilla) for less than a tiny bottle of vanilla extract costs in a grocery. I love the old Victorian homes too. I used to live in one that had a secret passage into another room, hidden compartments in walls, and still had the newel post on the staircase that was used to hide deeds and stuff in back in the old days. I think my favorite parts of the house were the awesome butler's pantry, the carved pocket doors, and the stained glass windows.
