When I decided to do this series on second-hand stores, I was already familiar with most of them, but there were some that I discovered specifically for these posts. That includes Bub’s Tool Consignment, (11 Pond Rd.). It’s a relatively new store, and Joey interviewed the owner back in December. Barry Williams, the owner, is a really friendly guy.
I hadn’t seen the store before because it’s not on a road where I walk or drive often, but it’s right down the street from Second Glance and just a few minutes’ drive from downtown Gloucester, and hence very well located for anyone looking for deals. I was impressed by the range of tools he has on sale; everything from basic garden and carpentry tools to large, professional items. Barry is selective about what he will put in his store, so you can be sure to find solid equipment.
It’s great to know about this place, not only because I might need to buy some tools at good prices, but also because my father is cleaning out his garage and will have used tools to sell!
