Frager's Hardware

Whenever we need to get something to fix another something that is broken, or needs replacement, we usually drive, or walk, to the neighborhood hardware store. It's been locally owned and operated since the 1920's. And it looks like it probably did in the 1920's. The slogan here is "if we don't have it, you don't need it." And we have tested that with a few requests, like the 1/4 inch tempered glass special order for the table top. It may be hard to find things in the store, but the customer service is superb, and they tend to walk you to the place that you need to be. We hope it remains viable - it is always full of people. But there was a petition of sorts floating around to protest a big box place may be coming to town, and we know how that works. There is something charming about this place. It makes Capitol Hill feel like a small town neighborhood. Let's hope it stays around another 90+ years.

It's here somewhere

Both indoor and outdoor stuff

Could use another tomato stand

The line to the register starts in this isle

Look up for directions
