We wandered into the store and liked the selection and uniqueness of the store. The name is deceiving in the sense that it offers so many different items. Lots of interesting gifts for others and things you might like for yourself

This place has been around for years and is one of the greatest and most eclectic 'hardware' stores ever! I always find a great deal on something!

Each time we visit Victoria, Capitol Iron is on the must visit lists. Miss seeing Peter at the Store, but they continue to improve. This time we found a large Italian Expresso Coffee maker at a great price.
