Little Hardware is a full-service hardware store in Mountain Brook.

Little Hardware was founded by Mr. Little in Ensley in 1946. In the 1950s it was located in Five Points West Shopping City, next door to Marsh Bakery. In 1959 Little moved the store to 2703 Culver Road in Mountain Brook Village's Mountain Brook Shopping Center. In 1963, Little sold the store to Frank Davies, Jr. Davies later brought on his son, Frank Davies III, as co-owner.

In 2009, when Jonathan Benton Bookseller, which was in the space next door, closed, the Davies took advantage of the opportunity to expand the store into that space as well. The impending re-development of the shopping center into Lane Parke forced the store to relocate in 2014.

The owners were able to lease space in the former Park Lane building at 2117 Cahaba Road in English Village. Mike Mouron purchased the property and was unable to come to terms with current tenant Park Lane by Kathy G. Mouron had talked with Tavern on the Summit about leasing the space, but those talks fell through, allowing Little Hardware to lease it. The new store opened on October 29.
