Over the generations, we have continued retailing useful, traditional items that are easy to use.
Our store has an 84 year history and I am pleased to be the third generation of my family to manage this community-based house wares shop. Good household tools that have been trusted over the years will continue to serve us well, as long as there are stores that sell them. If shops stop carrying them, those tools will disappear. The reality is that many traditional stores like ours are disappearing. Therefore, we hold on to our stock of traditional tools, even though we don't know if they will ever sell. However, there are quite a few customers who come to us because we have the items that supermarkets and mass retailers do not. Some people like to shop where there are fewer choices, but I know the nuance of the tools I sell and have the patience to help customers select the best tool for each type of work they undertake.
Please talk to us about what you need and we will help you choose the most appropriate of our specialty items.
Customers will be surprised to see so many different kinds of brooms. Each broom is suited to a special purpose. The broom most suitable to an area is the one that is easiest to use in that place. I'm happy to explain the differences and how to use each broom. There are times when a customer asks for something, and I will go behind the store to look for it in our warehouse. Our store is a place to have conversations. Some old customers cannot remember the names of what they came to buy. They just explain to me where they will be using the item, and for what purpose and I can usually figure out what they want. So, if you need any kind of tools, just ask me!
