8 Funny Finds From True Value We Didn't Know We Needed

You can make movie marathons and even eating corn on the cob easier and hassle-free


Just like any other store, True Value is a treasure trove of valuable finds, home must-haves, and other items that deserve a spot in your space. While it's considered as a hardware store, it has nearly everything you need—from sour candy and beef jerky to lawn mowers, Radio Flyers, and vintage-inspired popcorn makers. All useful things, sure, but the magic is in how even less obvious choices seem so desirable. Travel-sized fondue maker? Yes, we need that. Cat-shaped flower pots? Definitely important. Here we list eight other finds that first confused, and then made it hard for us to refuse.
