Last week, a fabric rep of mine told me about Sarasota Architectural Salvage. She promised a warehouse full of great finds and she was right!! I made the hour trip south to Sarasota on Monday with another designer friend of mine who had never been.
The place was tucked in a few side streets and when we pulled up this is what we saw...
At first, I thought the letters were cool and then the wings caught my eye, then the wine rack, yep this place is dangerous!
Sarasota Architectural Salvage is in a huge warehouse filled with to the brim with stuff. Not just any kind of stuff, it is filled with the stuff that makes my designer heart sing! Lighting fixtures, old doors, columns, windows, iron gates, everywhere I turned, I found another treasure just waiting to be found.
Of course, I found a gator hiding out...
My friend and I absolutely LOVED this place and will definitely go back! It is the perfect place to find unique things for your home. Make sure you keep your eyes wide open because there is so much to take in and so many odds and ends! I know every area has their own architectural salvage yard, I urge you to go find yours!! These kind of places are so much fun!
I hope everyone has a great weekend planned...several of my best girlfriends and I are going to a concert tonight. I love girls' nights and this one promises to be a blast!
