Founded by Ken Euston in 1971, Euston Hardware's old-fashioned legacy continues under the helm of Ken's son. Kevin, who has since grown the shops into three locations, keeps the shelves packed with more than 65,000 items for homes, landscaping, and automobiles. Experts chat with customers to help them to tackle projects from changing a car's oil to painting their house solid green so it can be replaced with a CGI castle. Home-improvement tools, which include items for the kitchen and bath, keep domiciles functioning at their best. The friendly staff can also guide green thumbs to lawn and garden supplies or help them select the right locks and outdoor equipment to keep their tools from escaping and impersonating the local robocop.

Lush hanging baskets dangle over flats of annuals, perennials, and herbs in an outdoor shopping area that emanates the earthy fragrances of soil and mulch. Two couples own the nursery, striving to set themselves apart from big-box greenhouses and name-brand jungles by stocking a vast variety of plants, many of which arrive weekly. On many containers, soil tags display a monarch-butterfly logo to indicate that the plants will attract the delicate nectar-lovers. The staff can also get their hands dirty in your garden, as they offer landscape design, yard work, and installation of koi ponds, outdoor lighting, and domesticated tiger lilies.
