Goody's is good for me!

The clothing store Goody's is going out of business. They've been selling off all their hardware - clothes racks, shelving, signage - all sorts of things dirt cheap.

I bought a rack the other day, took it apart and reassembled it on my wall. With the 80 steel pegs that I got, it's now holding some of my tools! I haven't put them all up yet, but it's a start!

I could use a little organization in my shop, looks like that works well.

I remember going by the Coke bottling plant "years ago" and seeing a lot of older shelves and displays they had in the "bone yard." I was starting up a hardware and farm supply business and knew a couple of the managers at the Coke plant. I stopped in and they told me to take what I wanted. I didn't pay a dime for any of my fixtures in the store. All came from that bone yard. Had to do some modifications, but worked out great!!!

I cut that board three times and it's STILL too short!!!...

Neat arrangement but you must be taller than me to reach those top tools with the tool boxes in the way.

:P So far, the long stuff hangs down enough that I can reach them with no trouble. I'll probably put things that I rarely use up top. Still, I have a small step ladder handy!

I think you did great. A big department store went out business here a few years back and I got all there jewery counters for free. All made of a/c plywood covered with laminant. I look them apart and build all the work benches in my shop. I got about 30ft of work benches out of it. I like free, It's one of my favorite words.
