Charlie's Second Hand Store & Used Tools Plus

We are a family business with over 100 years of experience in selling tools.



Charlie’s 2nd Hand Store has been a family owned & operated Colorado company since 1928, originally in Pueblo.  In 1946 we moved to the historic Lodo district in Downtown Denver. Current owner: Steve, is the 3rd generation in the business.

We carry top name brand tools for all trades, from the professional to the serious hobbiest, to the weekend do-it-yourselfer.  We also carry a broad selection of lawn and garden tools.

We also sell on Craigslist! Just type in '2227 Larimer' or '303-295-1781' in the search bar to see our constantly changing selection!

We expanded the business to Ebay, in 2002, and the response has been amazing.  We have sent tools to satisfied customers all over the U.S. and the world.  We’ve sent ratchets to Australia, crescent wrenches to the Caribbean and metal nibblers to Norway!



We have three keys to our business:  Knowledge, Customer Service and Relationships.


We feel that you don’t stay in business for as long as we have without exemplary customer service.  We take a true personal interest in our customers.  We are always willing to answer phone calls during regular business hours.  If you prefer, e-mail us with your questions and we will make sure they get answered.  

All tools sold, whether used or like new, are checked for operation prior to sale.  We strive to buy American made products whenever possible.

Charlie’s 2nd Hand Store has been written up in the Denver Post and Westword as well as being featured on KUSA news.  We have been voted:
