The True Value logo on the exterior of Gecko Hardware is a bit misleading. That's because although the shop sells regular nuts, bolts, and tools, the shop owners' true purpose is to help guide their customers into more eco-friendly, sustainable, and self-reliant lifestyles. They specialize in DIY projects to make a house into a homestead, whether it is by building a chicken coop or utilizing rain barrels to feed a healthy organic garden.
This means their shelves are stocked with a range of unique items and native plants, alongside classic tools and gardening supplies to get the job done. The staff shares knowledge on how to put these tools to use, and even hosts classes on topics such as how to garden in the city with raised beds or how to weave your own chair seats. They hope by offering these services they can help reduce our footprint on the world, and thus preserve it for the next generation or whatever alien race wants it the most.
Tips from Groupon Customers
“A great store with a variety of fun things to just spend a Saturday morning browsing and buying. ”
“They had a nice variety of merchandise and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoy supporting smaller businesses in the area, so I will become a repeat customer.”
“Chickens are a fun part of this store, but I like the variety of plants I find there which are different and better priced than what I regularly find at the big box...”
“Chickens are a fun part of this store, but I like the variety of plants I find there which are different and better priced than what I regularly find at the big box garden centers or upscale nurseries nearby. I've encountered some stocking issues, but they always seem happy to special order. Great for gifts.”
