I've got a mix of Craftsman, SK, Klein, Snapon, and other mid to high end brands in my toolboxes. I'm less happy with Craftsman now that they're making more and more in China, but if you buy from pawn shops the stuff will probably be old enough to be domestic.
For home use you really don't need tool-truck quality for most of the tools. You need a good warranty and some things, like ratchets, that stand up to use. That's where Craftsman is really getting bad- the new ratchets of the standard line just don't last. I have a couple of the high tooth count ratchets from Craftsman but I probably won't buy more of them from them as I'm really dissatisfied with them at the moment.
