    A Museum of Hardware

    This hardware store is a cool collection of things you simple cannot see or find anywhere else. The staff is very frendly in a Mayberry RFD sort of way. Time slows down at this store, where the staff always finds time to advise on how to fix things and the correct part.

    What a find! First,there are the talking birds,,,Cockatoos, or cockatiels, I forget which they are called. Then there is the store itself: a carbon blueprint from 1950, when most the neighborhood surrounding was built. A MUST visit as a bit of history from an era almost gone.

    Ortwine Hardware & Appliance is the place for old houses, and then there's Cookie. Be sure to bring peanuts or sunflower seeds for Cookie!

    If Ortwine Hardware doesn not have it, it can't be bought. My house is a *mid century home* and they always have what I need to fix it. The original owner was Mr. Ortwine, now his daughter, Barbara, runs the place. I like stopping in a feeding the birds and chattng, They are never too busy to talk to you. I like that.

    They give you old-fashioned, good customer servcie here. Don't know where to find that old washer or nut? They got it here. If you have an old house, forget Home Depot: you can find it here. A real gem!

    Excellent Mom and Pop shop

    The owners and workers at this store really know something about everything when it comes to repairs. They have stuff designed for the older homes in the neighborhoods, things that are very hard to find in more commercial stores.

    Oldest Hardware Store for My Old House!
    AGreenThumb (143 reviews)
    5/13/2008

    Second generation run, and if they do not have it, it ain't made! If you have an old house,this is the place for you! I got my original wall mount kitchen faucet replaced for my 57 year old house for a mere $40! The same exact model! The big box stores wanted well over $100 for the same. The place is an antique store in itself, and you must stop in and feed the Cockatoos! Say hi to Cookie!
