It's hammer time...

I always wonder how people end up with so many of the same item...do they pick them up cheap and resell a bit higher?  Another picture from the Croy Creek Trader's Fair.

I know how they do it.
While working on a project, put the hammer down but can't find in the construction rubble when it's needed again. So go out and buy a new one. Lose that one the same way and on it goes. Then one day, all the lost hammers are found.
A friend of ours found his many missing hammers inside a wall when he tore off panneling years later on a new reno.
The same thing happens with seam rippers :)

These are well made, quality tools from decades ago when you bought a hand tool, it was made in the good ol' U.S.A. There is an old gentleman who frequently shows up at the weekly flea market I go to and he picks up old tools like these, cleans them up and brings them to the market for sale. His tools are always a pleasure to look at and he once told me that it just his hobby. "Gives me something to do." He also collects old fishing gear - poles and reels,cleans them up and sells them also.

That would be my dad buying something that he already has, but he too would re-sell them at the shows he went to.

Great photo. We have several that belonged to family members from years ago.

Or, like the Great Scot, 'putting it away' and forgetting where, so buying another one... and another one... LOL

We even 'inherited' a lot of hammers when my father passed. So now we have one for each appendage [including some for our cats' paws]

my dad had a lot more than this, not sure how many, he got his because he was hard to buy gifts for and we kept buying hammers and other tools.. also if someone was giving away hammer he took it.

I think some guys just love tools and it makes them feel rich to have several of each kind. ;))

I think tool collectors never get enough. This shot is has an interesting variety of hammers. I'll take a plain old claw hammer!

There's a couple of them that are used for something else. Probably an avid collector would enjoy these.

We have lots of hammers and each is for a different purpose although for me if it hits a nail I'll use it. LOL!
