Baller Hardware, A True Silver Lake Gem

If you live in Silver Lake, Franklin Hills or Los Feliz, you've probably at some point wandered into Baller True Value Hardware Store at the corner of Tracy and Hyperion.  If you haven't been there yet- you really need to check it out. Silver Lake's best little hardware store I discovered Baller Hardware when I first moved to Silver Lake in 2001. My husband and I had purchased a fixer-upper just south of the Silver Lake Reservoir and had a lot of work on our hands. How fabulous to find this terrific little hardware store such a short drive from our new abode. Not a fan of big box retailers, I tend to avoid Home Depot and Lowes as much as possible.  Baller Hardware is a small town store stocked with the normal stuff you'd expect to find in a hardware store but also a huge variety of the hard to find odds and ends.  On top of that the staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I've had questions answered about everything from how to rescreen a screen door to which garden spray works best for white flies. From the trucks I've seen in the small parking lot out front, I think a lot of contractors and local handymen have long discovered this little gem of a shop.  There's a sister store across the street on Tracy that sells all things art-supply so if you can't find what you want at one store you can invariably find it at the other. Plus it's nice to have the overflow parking though I don't recall needing it on more than a handful of occasions. Whether you've just bought a foreclosure or live in a mansion in Moreno Highlands, you'll always need a tool, a nail, gardening supplies or a gadget of some kind. Before you jump in your store and make the trek to Hollywood, stop in at Baller Hardware. It's great to support a local business and it's a heck of a lot stressful to boot!
