I will be doing some business travel in the Panama City, FL area and was wondering if any fellow LJs had any recommendations for woodworking supplies.

Which way are you coming from? If you are coming from the West and don’t mind driving a little south of I-10, there are two great stores you can stop in. One is Plunderossa in Loxley, Alabama and the next one, a little further south is at the Summerdale Flea Market (but isn’t actually a part of the Flea Market). Plunderossa is closed Wednesday and Sunday 10-4. The Tool Shop at the Flea Market is open 12-4 Monday through Friday.

The Plunderossa sells mostly antique tools primarily European style tools (as they get most of their stuff from old tool shops in Romania, Italy, and occasionally France). While you would think this is bound to be expensive, I’ve picked up numerous tools for next to nothing (picked up a pair of Disston backsaws last week for 20 bucks and an unmarked adze for 10). The tool shop is reasonably priced though not bottom of the barrel cheap. The tools there are in pretty darn good working condition. It is a jumble of a place so you’ll have to look around. I was in there a couple of weeks back and he had two Stanley #7c, a #5, a #5 1/2, a #3, and rabbet (though I didn’t check the number).

If you are coming from another direction, it will be about three hours from Panama to get to AL 59, which is where these two places are.

Thanks for the info. I’ll have to give those a try.

No problem. Also, if you are a power tool user the tool shop at the flea market has a ton of power tools as well.

Have your say...
