Oil rubbed bronze is a very popular color these days. So, you might already have some or be choosing a particular kind you like already. We'd like to show off how some of our oil rubbed bronze hardware that has been used recently with these blog features.

Evolution of Style uses these matching venetian bronze cup pulls and knobs from Liberty Hardware. Featured on her white kitchen makeover they add a classy touch of style.

What a dresser! 16 drawers total and each with two little milk bottle knobs in oil rubbed bronze with a matching label holder so you know what you're getting into. That's My Letter created this gem.

From Home Road these oil rubbed bronze hooks make for a great welcome at the door coat hanger. Big with plenty of space for holding heavy coats and jackets.

From Colour Saturated Life this hardware offers clean and elegant lines and is a great addition to kitchen or bathroom cabinetry. This beautiful knob is a 2" bar knob bronze with copper highlights available at our store.

Ever Have Ten Million of Something?

D. Lawless deals in a lot of closeouts from the big guys that ordered too many or made a bad investment or whatever. Sometimes we've got to take package deals. It's take them all, or get none of them.

This is one of those deals. When Dave Lawless found out he had to either take 10 million at once or get none he thought to himself, "Will I ever have the opportunity to have 10 million of anything again?" The idea was too much to resist and he took them all.

So...we have 10,000,000 of these little shelf supports and we sold 40,000 last year. At this rate my great grandchildren will still be hocking these! So I'm writing this post to get the attention of anyone needing quantity. Our price is unbeatable at just .01 each. Average price around the web is 7 or 8 cents each.

They are listed cheap on the website. If you really need a lot of them give us a call and we'll deal!

Shelf Supports - Large Quantity - Closeout Price

Here's the trailer we keep them in. Nothing but shelf! 

Trailer load of shelf supports

You can see where the weight of them destroyed our entrance drive...

The weight of 10 million shelf supports.

But we are handy and made our own stand to spread the weight out! No problem too big for D. Lawless and the crew.

Free Hardware Friday #37 - Peas & Carrots Edition!


Good Morning!

I've got some funny weird pulls today. Hard to tell if anyone will actually want these, lol! We've got a nice little page of fruit and veggie pulls we've gotten our hands on over the years. They don't sell well. Weird huh?

Maybe they'll sell better if I get some pictures of them in use. They really are kinda cool if you happen to have a fun project to use them on. I don't expect to see them in any kitchens any time soon!

Here they are! The rules are at the bottom. I hope I get a few takers! You can have either one or both depending on what idea you have.

First up is a 3" green pea pod pull from Liberty Hardware.

And also I had to include carrots with the peas, this pull is 3 3/4".
