I had to do some hardware shopping for the renovation of the 1920's house that I am working on. Authentic period hardware can be hard to find, so usually my first stop for something like this is Liz's Antique Hardware.

Of course as soon as I walk in, I almost immediately forget what I am supposed to be looking for and I get lost in all the wonderful bits and pieces that completely cover every single inch of the shop.

I'm like a kid in a candy shop... I practically salivate at the sight of every kind of salvaged slide bolt, door handle, hinge or lighting fixture. Unfortunately, I did not find what I was looking for, but like a hardware tourist I couldn't resist buying some souvenirs.... will post those pics tomorrow.

Love this picture. It sounds like such fun: an antique hardware store. Wish we had something like that here...
