We enjoyed our visit to Hippo Hardware, part museum and part vintage collection. There are three floors, and every inch of space, including the ceilings, is covered with vintage and quirky items. The hippo theme runs throughout. Obviously run by people with a keen sense of humor, as indicated by mildly threatening signage. Be aware that parking nearby his hellishly difficult.
