Bar Tools in Boston

I want to buy bar tools (shaker, strainer, etc.) and would prefer some that are a bit unusual to the ones available at Crate & Barrel, Williams-Sonoma, etc. Are there shops in the Boston area that I should check out? I prefer to buy in-person rather than mail order. I checked Didrik's on Huron Ave. in Cambridge but they don't have any in stock. I don't need glassware, just the tools.

      You might want to call Grand before making the trip, as I thought that the "lease" on the Grand space was up on November 1. So until the Davis Sq. location opens I believe one can only order stuff on the website:

        Strongly seconded, as soon as the Davis Square location is up and running. High quality at excellent prices.
