We are located in downtown Black Mountain, NC, and occupy three historic buildings dating from the 1920s (one used to be the 5-and-10 and one used to be the drug store). We are still a working hardware store, with all the products and services you would expect from a top-of-the-line hardware chain. In addition, we are a traditional general store with a huge variety of items that amazes even long-time customers. We don’t just offer the basics. We carry a number of hard-to-find items — not just in hardware and tools, but also in housewares, toys, and outdoor living. Many of our customers joke “If you don’t have it, we don’t need it.”
A ringing bell, creaky wood floors, and old tin ceilings greet you when you open the door to our store. Take a step back in time and experience the charm of an old-fashioned hardware and general store featuring hand woodworking tools, axes and knives, toys, gardening supplies, practical housewares, and gifts. We have all your long-lost favorites, and so much more. Because, they just don’t make them like they used to.
