For many years I’ve been passing by this store, with this window display which has never changed, thank God. I love it. For whatever, this old and dusty hardware sparks joy. From their website:
“Since World War II, there have been many manufacturers of metal, vinyl and wood windows and doors established in the USA. Some of these companies had a life span of a few years while some are still in business.
“Many of the manufacturers who went out of business, and current ones, used and use hardware that is very unique in its design. That meant that, if a window or door was in perfectly good operating condition, except for broken or worn out hardware, it would have to be replaced if the hardware wasn’t available.
“We are specialists in duplicating obsolete window and door hardware, as well as miscellaneous hardware items of a similar nature. We can furnish almost anything that you might require either by having it in stock or by making it in our shop.”
The Barry Supply Company has been in business for 57 years! If ever I am in need of window or door hardware, I know where to go.
