Me too...I love browsing in over-stocked hardware stores.
Bill Phillips: We used to have a wonderful old hardware shop in Droitwich
there would be no room for a barrel in that shop Bill... but Penny would have a ball in there....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Shops like this could find room for anything Petergrin
Biggest keys around...
Bill Phillips: No danger of losing them Larry
It does look stocked to the hilt!
Bill Phillips: An Aladdin's cave E. I love these old hardware shops that are ,sadly, fast disappearing

it looks like they have 1 of everything

what a treasure trove
Bill Phillips: They probably do Sherri. These hardware shops are becoming quite rare now
Awwww. How sweet of Ange to think of Astrid! She would zoom right in to something particular and immediately know where she was going to put her signature! smile
Bill Phillips: You would have a job to get her out of the shop Ginnie

This is great isn't it. This place harks back to the days when shops were INTERESTING.
Bill Phillips: They were wonderful. We had a fine old hardware shop in Droiters

Blimey Bill, who would want to carry around a key that large?

Clever owner. I would have taken that photo , too.
Now that's what I call a proper shop, we often browse such places if we come upon them and end up buying a packet of AA batteries or something out of goodwill.

I think I can stay overnight in such a shop, Bill. Ange knows me well. Often I go for fun into a shop like that just to see what's new...
Chris said the right thing here too.

It looks a fascinating place to while away the time.
Great to see it surviving!
