Tilmann Hardware

Friday afternoon Julie, Betsy and I made a parts run to Tilmann Hardware. We needed shear bolts and 9000 sisal baler twine. 

Tilmann Hardware is located nearly fifty miles west of us in Beal City, hometown of former Michigan governor John Engler.

As well as being the closest New Holland dealer in the vicinity, Tilmann Hardware has appeal by its embodiment of the olden days. There's even a wood stove and a couple of wood chairs in the middle of the store, though I missed seeing a checkerboard on a cracker barrel. 

The Beachy Buggy isn't just for fun--Friday afternoon it hauled 400 pounds of baler twine.

  1. I love old stores and gas stations and barns. Does this mean I'm old?

    Okay, I'm old.
