Salvo Architectural Salvage
Are you a homeowner in the UK, you might be fortunate enough to live in a house that is more than just a few years old. While this makes for a great feeling of "homeyness", it can make repairs and remodeling quite costly when you're looking for that perfect vintage part. Lucky for you, Salvo is an amazing portal for all your architectural salvage needs...From doors and windows to chairs, tables, slate roof tiles, paving stones, and even two hundred year old marble statues, Salvo has anything and everything you could possibly dream of putting in your house or yard. The site is really a clearinghouse for hundreds of different dealers and advertisers around the British Isles, so what's being offered changes every day.
On top of being able to browse, and place your own free ads for items, the site has some additional info that will interest any restoration buff. Their news section covers antique shows, relevant museum openings, and lectures of interest to the arch. restoration crowd. Demolition is just that: A section announcing upcoming demolitions so that interested parties can arrange for material recycling. Also interesting is the Stolen section, which serves as an alert to potential inadvertent buyers of items stolen from homes and gardens around the country.
Even though we have these sorts of sites in the US, I can't help but be jealous; The option of buying a second hand roman carved marble planter isn't something you have much in Chicago. :: Salvo Architectural Salvage Search
