Fallout 3 locations project
There is no real background about the shop before the bombs fell on its original owner. Haley, the merchant who currently lives and works there, woke up with a case of amnesia not knowing who or where he was, but since people kept coming to buy things he decided to become a merchant, taking the shop's name and calling himself "Haley".
Like most houses in Point Lookout, Haley's Hardware is a small wooden shack with a pile of rubble next to it.
Inside on your right there is a bedroom with a bed and chest at the foot of the bed, a kitchen with some empty cabinets, and a bathroom. The part of the house where Haley does business with the people of Point Lookout has a counter and a locker holding Haley's inventory (requires key). There is also a workbench to the left of the bathroom you can use. A bottlecap mine on the bench can be stolen, which results in negative Karma. There is also an Average locked safe containing various loot.
- Haley wears a Handyman jumpsuit which you can acquire by either reverse-pickpocketing or killing him, though this will prevent his glitch from working. (See here.)
- An oversized damaged garden gnome at the front the door, with a Holotape note next to it.
