tidbit: architectural salvage finds

my husband and i recently made a trip to pasadena architectural salvage in search of unique accessories...what a treasure!

we scored these incredible vintage windows, which will be turned into fabulous "artwork" in our home. those sidelights even match the iron work on our 1934 heater grates!

check out these old street signs. LOVE them! an authentic version of the "vintage" subway signs circulating the big box design stores as of late!

if you are looking for unique home accessories, i highly recommend you check out your local architectural salvage store. shop with a discriminating eye, make sure all of the items you purchase are sturdy and can be cleaned--but you are sure to find more than you could ever imagine. and remember, the more you buy, the more you can bargain!

...happy sophisticating...

I found them at Pasadena Architectural Salvage. I suggest looking at an local architectural salvage warehouse - they have some gems!
