Hammond Bay – Part 1


Hammond Bay Part 1/2 Estate Sale

You may have trouble digesting the enormity of this tool collection, so plan for a big tool-house rocking celebration later and do bring lots of friends with big trucks & muscles – it’s that big, and then there’s the Lee Valley.

This first 2-day sale of two parts for two houses is a massive liquidation for a 40-year amassment of crafts, gardening, auto restoration, woodworking and hobby supplies. Among these collections are several miniature Lee Valley tools, the contents of a mechanical shop, a wood working shop and two sheds full of garden tools. The bigger tools include a snow blower, hydraulic log-splitter, wood-chipper, every possible power tool, drill press, band saw, Tig welder, metal lathe and chests full of hand tools. More so is a desk-size paint booth, hobby supplies galore, military collectibles and gun reloading equipment, plus a collection of African art, lots of containers full of eclectic antiques, vintage collectibles literally stacked to the roof of one room and a touristy motor scooter.

Watch your inbox for details on part two and the contents of the second house on this same property slated for the end of July when the client is ready.
