This neighborhood hardware store boasts a Home Depot–worthy inventory in a space that’s anything but big-box. Floor-to-ceiling shelving gives the cramped corner store a labyrinthine feel; thankfully, eager staffers stand ready to direct shoppers through the many sections. Do-it-yourselfers can find an extensive trove of tools and painting supplies to satisfy their inner Bob Vila, and locals can pick up everyday cleaning supplies such as Swiffer WetJets, garbage bags, and detergent. The East Village stop also boasts a small collection of home-décor items (curtains, votive candles, plant pots) and kitchen gadgets (cooking pots, pans, Brita filters). And Saifee's gardening area carries rosebushes, daffodil bulbs, and Dwarf Alberta Spruces—as well as the shovels needed to plant them.
