And now, a trip through 7 Corners Hardware


Since the dawn of time, 7 Corners Hardware has been providing St. Paul with its building needs. No triple wide aisles or teenaged workers here. The aisles are narrow, the shelves crowded and the workers experienced. Rather than looking for the needed item yourself, it's always better to ask since most likely, it's on a shelf 10 feet high behind 3 other boxes of things you don't need. But they have it all folks! There is a sign that says "No photos" that I really wanted a photo of but it's right near the register so I didn't dare. So the in the days to come, I'll post what I was able to shoot from under my coat. Enjoy and stop by next time you have some building or repair needs.

The red gate really makes the photo come alive. Interesting narrative; I wonder about the photo ban??

Love stores like that. I hope none of their staff are blog-lovers!
