Breed & Co. is a great place to shop for house wares. In the store you will find many brands of kitchen gadgets, pots and pans, and gift registries for the married to be. There also carry a beautiful line of ceramic serving pieces. Some items do seem a little overpriced compared to national chain stores but its realty nice to support a local business.
Breed and Co hardware store is a hardware store last, a great place to get lost in first. They are my first choice for bridal registries, and I love to buy from registries there. The staff is super helpful, and they have sooooo much stuff you will have to come back to see it all. They are downtown, and can also be found at the bridal show when it comes to town.
Breed & Co has a wonderful selection of gifts and household items. They sell beautiful pottery, and offer a wedding registry. I first found them at a Bridal Show in Austin, and the sales staff was wonderful there, as well as in the store. They have everything from flowers to plates to specialy tools. The y have gourmet foods too. If you are in need of anything Texas-this is also the place to go. The prices can be steep, but if you need a one of a kind gift, you've got to stop by.
I went into this store a couple of weeks ago for the first time. At first I was confused, because 1/2 the store was hardware and the other half of the store was awesome general home stuff. I really wanted to check out all the cool stuff in the home section, but I was in a rush and only got to see the hardware section. Service was great, no fewer than 3 people asked me if I needed help and actually answered my questions and got me the supplies I needed. Knowledgeable and quick, this place is definitely great!
PROS: LOCAL business!!
So you need some nails to put up that picture of your hot new boyfriend in your dorm room or perhaps register for your wedding to said boyfriend? Head on down to Breed and Co. and get lost. This place is large and you probably will forget to buy nails when you see the housewares/giftwares section. Decor items, small appliances (top of the line brands such as kitchenaid , cuisinart, all-clad, etc), fine china and a chocolate shop which offers a glass case of tempting candies and gourmet coffee beans and loose leaf tea. See what I mean? Who never knew that hardware could be so refined? :) They also have houseplants and outdoor landscaping plants and decor. Go ahead and buy a little plant for your room -- you need the oxygen after this heady experience. Don't forget the nails though! (if you need help finding something just go to any employee past the register-- they'll help you!)
Breed & Co is a local, family owned hardware store. They have many hard to find products for any job you are trying to do. They also specialize in unique gifts. They have a garden section, a crystal section, a fine candy section, a household section. You name it and Breed & Co carries it. Dad can be on one side of the store shopping and mom can be on the other side. It is truly a store for your entire family!
This store is on everyone's list when they come to visit from out-of-town after introducing them to it. They have some of the most beautiful home decorations and a wonderful selection of China patterns. There is a large kitchen section where you will find some very unique kitchen gadgets.
If you are taking men, there is a hardware section, but most men seem to enjoy the whole store.
You will receive top notch service at this location.
Breed's is the only centrally located hardware store I know of, so I run over there a lot. There are always plenty of people to help you find the right tool for a repair, locate the right size air filter, or give advice on staining cabinets. They are a little pricier than the big box places, but I save time because the parking is closer and you can find people to help you!
There is also a household/garden section. The garden section is limited, but has all of the basics-dirt, fertilizer, hoses, plants, pots. The kitchen/household gift section is very extensive and has all of the brand name pots, pans, utensils, knives and dishes you could possibly want.
Pros: central location, customer service
Cons: limited inventory compared to big box hardware stores
Breeds has great service and we are regular customers. We know Steve personally and people need to know the facts of the offender case of 20 years ago before they try and ruin a person's life. We have used Steve and his work is beautiful....
Caution... There is a registered s*x offender advertising his services in the garden section. His name is Steve Stoeltje.
This place may not have as many big box items like lumber and light fixtures, but they've got the most amazing assortment of screws, nuts, bolts, hooks, dremmel bits, an other small, hard to find items. Salespeople actually come looking for YOU to see if you have questions or need help finding something. How novel! I can go in with any of my unusual do it yourself or art projects and their knowledgable and friendly staff will help me come up with ideas. You won't notice the minimal price difference, but you will be out the door with a better product in a fraction of the time.
Pros: Great Service, convenient location
Cons: small store means limited selection and no large items.
these guys still believe in customer service. Walk in, and they ask to help you. Ask, and they have an answer. Increible! Compare to your local hellhouse store. They're not terribly expensive either. How much is your time worth?
Any place where I can buy sandpaper, an extra housekey, chocolate truffles and a birthday card under one roof is alright with me. Admittedly, I have no idea how their prices compare to warehouse chains. But, unless you're buying, like, an arc welder or tablesaw or something (I just didn't happen to see any of those while perusing the sandpaper) I recommend it. Twice I was asked if I needed assistance. I parked right near the door and was outta there in less than 10.
Pros: friendly staff, hardware & home
Cons: , ?
