Best Old-School Hardware Store

Ashby Lumber

Once upon a time, hardware stores were staffed by people who understood how to actually use the things being sold there. If you had a question, you could (get this!) ask someone, and they would tell you the answer. Thankfully, Ashby Lumber still has real, live, helpful employees. One of these was recently seen giving detailed, helpful, and accurate advice about how to solder copper pipe. Friendly recommendations about anything from choosing your first screwdriver to understanding the differences between higher-end circular saws are readily available, and the merchandise includes power tools, lumber, staple guns, and anything else a crafty plan for home improvement might require.
