Shopping Salvage

This weekend we hit the regional salvage spot for some hunting and gathering for our renovation. Looking for a few specifics but always open to the possibilities.


Hmm... Possible door handles for the new french door installation.


Lets get a close up of that amazing arch.

I wish we had a spot for that. Its just a bit over scale for the tiny Tudor.


I know just the spot for that.


And twenty or so of these may find a home on our kitchen ceiling.







More cool doors. Although, the arched set at the top of this post is my favorite.

Yum. Table love.



Trunks anyone?

I spy something Swedish.



Thanks for going treasure hunting with me. Hope you like a dig as much as I do. Never let a little dust get in the way.

Oh I do love the salvage places in the UK! I have a book about them and try to visit the closest one, whenever I'm traveling by car in the UK.
