Hardware Store

Imagine in days gone by if you needed to do a bit of DIY, or to find an every day replacement item for your home, and you’ll find it here in the hardware store.

From candlewicks to clothes lines, pots to pans, tap washers, paints and varnishes, hovers to light bulbs. There is even a handy government issued leaflet giving advice to consumers on ‘What the rationing of electricity means’ to them.

It is an Aladdin’s cave of bits and bobs spanning back 100 years. You will find yourself immersed scanning the packed shelves for handy items, recognising many, and noticing several that have only changed marginally in more recent times.
