This impressively sized and consistently well-stocked independent store sells all kinds of hardware, from nails and screws to heavy-duty tools and everything in between. Beyond that, Gilbert's Pro Hardware has their own YouTube channel in which owner Blair Gilbert shows how to tackle a variety of home fixes, from the simple to the complex. The videos are great, and Gilbert's a real natural in front of the camera.
