Highland Hardware

We're trying to support local businesses and keep our renovation spending as close to home as possible.  As such, we've probably been to Highland Hardware about 20 times in the last month.   For those who've been, I needn't tell you:  Highland Hardware and Bike Shop is more than a hardware store; it is a Holyoke institution and a Holyoke history lesson.   On our most recent trip, we needed roller shades.  It's always fun to roam the aisles (love the creaking wooden floors) and chat with Harry.

If they don't have what you're looking for, they're happy to order it.

  1. I love Highland, but at heart I'm a Haberman's gal. The photos of the interior of that gem would be a bit more...dimly lit, shall we say?

    Haberman's had exactly what I needed a couple of weeks ago, but it did take the expertise of Les who has been there forever to find the dusty box of brass bits. I would have never found them on my own.
