Bub’s Tool Consignment

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!

Store hours:
Monday-Friday: 8am – 4:30pm
Saturday: 8am – 12pm
Sunday: CLOSED

Here’s a list of the places covered so far in this series:

We still have more to go!

Tools Of The Trade- The Lobster Banding Tray Aboard The Degelyse

Lobster bands and banding tool.  As the traps come up from the ocean floor, hopefully full of lobsters the lobsters that need to be gauged for size get tossed into the slots and then measured and the ones that are legal sized get banded and thrown into the holding tank til they get in to offload.
