2005 BEST Hardware

Charles Street Supply

This 57-year-old landmark recalls a time before superstores and strip malls. Its amiable staff can help you sort through the somewhat chaotic arrangement of wares, from seeds, potting soil, flowerpots, hammers, nails, and nonstick Texas-size muffin tins to patio furniture, hibachis, and just about every other hardware item under the sun.
