We started an Ebay Store a few years ago and have enjoyed meeting buyers from around the country. We're now finally catching on to the world of blogging and are excited at the opportuntity to connect with more people & continually update our website with our blog.
We have a passion for reclaiming & renewing architectural salvage. Sadly, many lost treasures end up in landfills - we often hear customers say 'wow, I wish I hadn't thrown that away' after walking through our warehouse. Our goal is prevent that from happening, so we're always looking for opportunities to help save quality salvage.
In the spirt of the season, I'd like to share two salvage projects made here in our shop.
No watering required…
No needles to pick up…
Decorate as much or as little as you like…
Sally, the Sally Dog, would like to introduce the first tree
This first tree was made using salvaged Antique Wrought Iron Scrolls
It has a great Dr. Seuss feel & sways with the wind!
The Old Southwest Parlor Tour (link: http://www.oldsouthwestinc.com/) this year
It looked great on the front porch of their wonderfully restored historic home. The house is part
of The Millers Hill (link: http://www.millershill.com/) project, where a block of historic homes
is being renovated by Roanoke City.
If you like checking out historic homes, this parlor tour is worth checking out
and a great way to get into the holiday spirit!
Our second tree is made from two Antique 5-Panel Doors
We first saw this in a book called 'Salvage Style' and fell in love with the idea
We added 's' hooks to the doors, so we can still hang our ornaments.
It truly is the perfect tree & folds flat which makes storing easy!
wish you a safe & happy holiday and best wishes for the New Year!
