Every decent neighborhood needs three things: a good school, a mailman that barks back when dogs say hello, and a good hardware store. Frager's Hardware has served as the last of those on Capitol Hill since 1920, when Russian immigrant Fritz "Frank" Frager opened it after getting laid off from his job as a cabinetmaker at the Navy Yard.
Frager's Lawn & Garden Center has helped their neighbors' outdoor foliage thrive as well, providing sound advice for year-round garden maintenance.

Perched at their workstations, calligraphers artfully emblazon blank cards with birth announcements or legally binding grocery lists, and staffers help brides- and grooms-to-be draft up dream wedding invitations. Along with lavish paper wares, Just Paper & Tea’s shelves also brim with a vast selection of teas that call to mind distant landscapes with smoky darjeeling and herbaceous green matcha.
