I’ve been shopping in Sears for as long as I can remember. My mom loved shopping in Sears and has instilled that love in me. Sears is one of the best places to go and buy big ticket items because they have the best payment options. My mom bought a flat screen TV there last year and she LOVED the process. You know what else Sears is good at? TOOLS. Craftsman is a Sears brand and I love Craftsman and guess what? Craftsman is featured in the Sears Holiday Tool Catalog.
Sears put together a few fun facts about the Sears Holiday Catalog for me to share with you guys.
The catalog had Real People… Real Testing
· A new testing panel made up of real tool users, a few pros, a few hobbyists and a few weekend warriors. In short… Real People! Selected product has been given to testing recruits to provide customers with feedback.
· Comments found in the catalog help you select gifts for the tool user on your list… or yourself

One really great recommendation from the Sears Holiday tool Guide.
This tool set features an ultra thin-profile design which fits over long bolts eliminating the need for deep sockets. I’ve checked out one of the larger Craftsman tool sets and it was very durable, I mean it still is. The pieces are all very heavy duty. Craftsman is known for quality right? The Ratchet strength is up to 45% stronger than their most popular ratchet. This 51 piece mechanics tool set comes in a convenient and portable briefcase style plastic carrying case. The rest of the contents include 42 sockets, hollow shaft handle, 2 Go-Thru ratchets, 3 standard socket adapters, 2 extensions and a Go-Thru adapter.
