A hometown hardware store since 1923, Berg has the most helpful, knowledgeable staff anywhere, bar none. They’ll match the screw or bolt you bring in, they’ll help you choose the right kind of glue for that craft project, and, if you’re a JPL scientist seeking a widget for an unusual project, they’ll help you with that, too. And it’s the only place that we know of in L.A. that will cut to order any size of stock metal. When you add the cool collection of old-timey tools, this place will make you want to run home and do chores—or invent your own widget.
