Do it yourself with supplies from a neighborhood hardware store
Location: Vickery Hardware store
Date taken: June 30, 2012
In 2009, Vickery Hardware store was named best hardware store by Atlanta Magazine. And, it’s no wonder. In addition to the standard hardware supplies, the store offers all the following services on site — keys copied, screens cut, glass cut, knives sharpened, lamps fixed, watch batteries replaced, dog tags printed and propane tanks filled. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by this family-owned and operated store (since 1950) and shop for what you need and what you forgot you needed (I bought a bell for my bike). You can also buy a watermelon from the fruit stand in the parking lot, walk next door to Ebony & Ivory BBQ and grab a book from the Little Free Library.
