Liz’s Antique Hardware offers a plethora of salvaged vintage door, window and furniture hardware along with lighting and accessories dating from1860 to 1970, though a large selection of contemporary hardware is also available. The left side of the store is dedicated to contemporary designs, while the large right side is stacked practically from floor to ceiling with milk crates full of carefully curated and organized hardware. Liz’s is the perfect place for anyone sourcing replacement parts for fixtures and hardware for an antique or period restoration, though it’s fun enough to simply trawl through the bins, looking for inspiration. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful in finding exactly you need, but be prepared to spend some time looking for what you want regardless; there’s a lot to discover.

This old-fashioned Eagle Rock hardware store offers personalized service from the Tritch family, who has been in the hardware business since the mid-1800s. At their Colorado Boulevard outpost, the carpets are worn and patched with tape in places, but Merritt Tritch still runs the place, even though he’s in his 80s. Sons Glen and Jeff are there as well, guiding customers down aisles to find the perfect household need or construction item for sale. Low-slung and shabby in spots, Tritch Hardware Company oozes neighborhood charm, and is actually located inside the first commercial structure ever built in Eagle Rock, back in 1907. Affiliated with True Value Hardware stores, regular customers can put their items on a paper account and be billed later.
