Lee Valley Tools

We visited Lee Valley Tools yesterday. It is a shop that specializes in woodworking instrument’s and gardening. It reminded me of the old Consumers Distribiting stores, with its catalog based ordering. You had to look in the catalog, write down the product numbers, and take it to the counter for the person to check to see if they had it in stock.

I liked the atmosphere of the store. The first thing we saw was a pumpkin carver and several carved pumpkins. There were no sales people asking if we had found what we were looking for.

Best of all there was nobody under 40 on staff.
