4:00 pm–8:00 pm

Join us for a tropical shopping adventure on Wednesday, July 27! In addition to our Cutting Edge wine, we’ll also be serving some white wine spritzers and cocktails concocted with assorted SodaStream® sparkling soda flavors, including cucumber lime, cranberry raspberry, pink grapefruit, mango berry, and pear.

This is a great opportunity to stock up on household supplies or buy everything you need for a gardening project, and you can participate as we demonstrate two of our favorite products.

We hope to see you there!

Christophe Pourny Furniture Tonic

Come see how this tonic restores the luster and shine to wood that time and sun can diminish. Once you see how beautifully dried wood is restored, you may wish to use Christophe Pourny Furniture Tonic (Sku 102103, $19.99) for a larger piece of furniture. Bring in a small wooden item that needs some love, and we’ll treat it with the tonic free!

Block Oil®

Bring in your favorite wooden or bamboo cutting board for a free Block Oil treatment that will penetrate, condition, and seal the surface, protecting it from cracking, drying, and absorbing food odors. Keep some Block Oil (Sku 102004, $7.99) on hand to treat your cutting boards at home. Bring in a wooden or bamboo cutting board for a free Block Oil treatment!

Sewing Circle: How to Hand Mend

Sewing Circle: How to Hand Mend

Tuesday, July 12, 5:00 pm–7:00 pmSewing Circle: How to Hand Mend
956 Cole Street

It’s unfortunate that we live in such a disposable world these days. Oftentimes, it seems more convenient to toss something and replace it with a brand new item instead of trying to make repairs. We all probably have a piece of clothing that needs a stitch (or nine), but many of us seem to never get around to doing that mending. With home economics (wood shop and auto shop classes, too) no longer offered at many schools, some younger folks may have never even threaded a needle. We’re here to help!

Join us at our Cole Street store for a sewing circle on Tuesday, July 12, and learn how to hand stitch minor tears in clothing or sew a patch on jeans or a jacket. Just bring your clean clothing, and our friend Alicia Pucci from Sew-it-All will lead us in the repairs. A former home economics instructor, Alicia now teaches private sewing lessons, sewing classes, and specialty workshops in her charming Marina studio

Hand mending is a valuable skill for anyone. Who wants to go on a date or a job interview with a missing button that could have been fixed in a matter of minutes? Everyone is welcome to stop by and repair a few pieces of apparel, pillows, curtains, or other household items in need of mending. We’ll be serving tea and cookies.

The class is free, but please register by e-mailing julia@colehardware.com or phone 415/674-8913 ext. 4. (Children 12 years of age and up welcome. Clean clothing only. Needles and thread will be provided.)

Sidewalk Sale

sidewalk-saleAs part of San Francisco’s Small Business Week, all Cole Hardware locations— including our Oakland Rockridge store—will celebrate with a sidewalk sale on May 21, along with merchants across the various business corridors in the City. We’ll be
cleaning house and lining the sidewalks at each of our stores with hundreds of bargains! We have lots of merchandise that is in good shape but perhaps a bit shopworn—ripped packaging or maybe a little scratched or dusty. We need to empty the warehouse and make room for summer and fall merchandise. Everything will be marked down 25% to 75%, so you’ll find some exceptional deals.
