“Old fashioned tools and housewares as well as modern items”
Better than a museum, Harrison Brothers--owned and operated by Historic Huntsville Foundation and staffed with volunteers--is a living 19th century landmark sitting serenely in the midst of downtown Huntsville. High-tech Huntsville itself seems 100 years away as you enter the store. Harrison Brothers, called a hardware store but really much more, is stocked from floorboards to high ceiling in tiny numbered drawers and on every available surface with old fashioned tools and housewares as well as modern items. Goods nestled up high are reached from tall rolling ladders, the rope elevator is hand operated, and a real pot-bellied stove helps warm the store in winter. Nearby, a tall desk displays an untidy mound of old invoices, catalogs and calendars, just as the last Harrison brother left it. Harrison Brothers is more than a glimpse of old Huntsville. It's a shoppers delight. On the west side of the`store, a stack of antique biscuit jars brimming with old-fashioned candies tempts youngsters of all ages. Marbles by the scoop, cast iron cookware, locally crafted pottery and jewelry share space with garden gadgets and gourmet food items. When you are searching for that perfect gift or a souvenir to take home, Harrison Brothers is the place to visit.
Letting my 9 year old ring in her own sale on the original cash register was amazing!!!!!!
