The Old Hardware Store
Last month I did a post on The Old Hardware Store
in Halstead Kansas.
This old hardware store has been operating since
Margaret is the sweet lady who with her
husband bought the old 1879 building in 1998.
With help of some wonderful craftsmen they
brought this beautiful old store back
to it's original glory.
As Margaret says...it's
a work in progress and what
wonderful progress they've made.
I thought you might like to see more of the inside
of this historic building along with some of the wonderful
things Margaret has for sale.
The cash register is not for sale
I love this set above and if we still lived in our
old Victorian I would buy it!
There are so many beautiful hardware pieces to
They are like works of art.
The pottery on the upper shelf is Margaret's private collection.
This is something that my friend Amy over at
could use for her little pigs!
Margaret has smaller ones too Amy ;)
(Amy is having her first 'give-away' so
please pop on over and visit her sweet blog and meet her wonderful 'family'.)
Above are a few of the original drawers that have been stripped of their enamel paint and re-finished.
Below are some old drawers that are in original condition.I don't think these below are original to the store.
There is lots more to show you but I'll do that again in another post next year!
I hope you have a wonderful day.
