The City Reliquary is a short walk from Crest Hardware, located at 370 Metropolitan Ave.
If you look closely at Santa, you'll see he's our very own "Crest" Kringle. 

There will be cookies, milk, and juice boxes for the kids (included w/admission), and "holiday cheer" for grown-ups (a little extra). There will also be brownies and blondies made with flour from RISE Products, one of the upcycling organizations featured in our NYC Trash! exhibition.

Our Pick for Best Safety Masks

At Crest Hardware, we believe that safety should always be the main priority when working on home repairs and DIY projects. A little planning and prep can go a long way to prevent injury and health issues down the line. 

That being said, our friends over at Soft Seal make one heck of a dust mask! 
Popular Science magazine just featured their N95 mask in the "Top Tech of 2017" issue:

It's always great to see the products we carry making a big impact in their industries. Soft Seal N95 masks are thoroughly tested and pass the highest quality standards for particle filtration masks.

  • Medical grade silicone seal that moves with your face and mouth to maintain the seal even when you are speaking.  The seal also provides added comfort while wearing.
  • Internal skeleton design that prevents mask collapse while breathing and keeps the mask from touching the face in the N95 and Cup-style Filter Mask.
  • Both Cup and V-Fold Styles of Premium Filter Masks have the CoolTech™ Valve, lowering mask temperature, moisture and exhalation resistance.

Handmade Organic Compost in Brooklyn!

In the spirit of nurturing our community's growing interest in environmental awareness, including organic waste disposal, we would like to introduce our friends over at BK Rot! 

BK Rot makes handmade compost from organic waste collected from their home pick-up members, small businesses, farmer's markets, community organizations and local caterers. Their compost is chopped down and mixed with wood chips from a local tree company and clean sawdust from friendly wood shops. 

We are currently carrying their bagged organic compost, which is perfect for growing vegetables, herbs and also for jump-starting soil remediation of backyards and toxic landscapes.

BK ROT is a community based year-round composting service. They employ young adults from the community at living wages to collect organic waste from businesses, organizations, and households by bike. The material is processed at their site, Know Waste Lands, in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Cool Product Alert: NEBO Flashlights!

Want to see in the dark? Well these are some serious illuminators!
Nebo Flashlights are now available at Crest Hardware. Here's a few of the models we currently have in-stock:


First up, we have the Nebo CSI Edge 90, which is a powerful little high-intensity tactical flashlight. Constructed of anodized aircraft grade aluminum, The EDGE™ outputs 90 lumens with 1 powerful LED. These also feature a steel clip to keep attached to you at all times or to clip onto a secure area for hands-free lighting. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, The Edge is called "The Edge" due to its aggressive face which has sharp edges and can be used for emergency self-defense! A great tool to carry in your bag or clip to your belt.

This little flashlight is capable of 6x adjustable zoom, making it a cinch to pin point objects in the dark. The Redline OC also features a magnetic base which is great for retrieving dropped items in the dark, especially handy while working on projects with dark crevasses, such as behind a dresser or between floorboards. 
This flashlight also features a clip and aggressive edge as well as a glow-in-the-dark button!
