It. Was. Amazing.
Yes, that's a giant boxing glove out front!
Before we get into the goods I just have to give these guys major kudos for a beautiful shop. They've curated their shop so that it's very easy to find things and inspiring just to be there! It's two stories (more like one and a half), and their staircase is so amazing!
I especially love the chalk board inserts in the railing :)
On to the goods! If you're into vintage or antiques you might not be able to handle yourself... so much patina... so much great hardware... your creativity switch will be turned on!
I recently bought an old window encasement for wall art, but this treasure trove almost made me grab a few more!
You know I'm a sucker for card catalogue drawers. How about multi-colored? With their age showing? And wait... what's inside?!
I'll take the whole thing please.
If I you have a house and a renovation budget you should get your butt over here. Look at the mantle! Stained glass! Vintage sinks!
Tim and I will be going back soon to grab some clock faces for DIY refrigerator magnets.
And finally, my all time favorite that I don't think I can live without, but can't figure out a use for yet...
Basically, this is a get there now if you can kind of place. I know there were a ton of pictures in this place, but that's because Architectural Salvage has SO MUCH. I was in a constant state of "ohmygoshTimlookatthis!" It's total vintage eye candy and the prices are very very fair.
