Best Independent Hardware Store

Breed and Co.

In business since 1971, this place is a shopper's paradise. Offering everything from screwdrivers to Godiva chocolates to Jay Strongwater frames as well as a well-stocked plant nursery in between, Breeds is a place you don't want to enter without a budget. Don't get us wrong: Their prices are reasonable, competitive, even. Their selection, however, will have you lusting after two of everything. Speaking of two: List your bridal registry here, and get the crystal and cookware you really want.
