Shopping at Lehman’s Hardware - Dalton, Ohio

Yes, Lehman's is a hardware store.
But it's, oh, so much more than that!
Shopping there was a true browsing adventure.
So many interesting things, old and new.

Set amid the bucolic farmland of Holmes County, Ohio,
they've been family owned and operated for 60 years now - since 1955.

Lehman's offers "simple products for a simpler life."
Things geared to an old-fashioned world, rich in tradition, 
with a solid work ethic and a love for family.
I left with a real appreciation of the slower, country lifestyle.

Old galvanized bins sort nails in many sizes.
Every hear the phrase "penny nails?"
Learn more about that here.

If you need a cork, this is the place to find the right size.
I liked seeing the use of so many old, antique display shelves and fixtures.

Now, over to the kitchen area.
Have you ever seen such a selection of ladles?

A huge showroom was filled with wood burning stoves.
Along the tops of the walls was a display of antique ones.

More antique collections! We just loved seeing them.
Look at this display of mini sewing machines, donated by Lois Lehman.

My photos can't do the place justice; it's just filled with countless intriguing things.
You'll just have to see for yourself!
If you can visit the Ohio store, it's at 4779 Kidron Road, Dalton, Ohio.
If not, visit their website, where you can order online.
They're also on Facebook.
