Architectural Salvage Treasures

On my recent visit to California, I spent some time in Sonoma at an architectural salvage place. Artefact Design & Salvage Inc. (yes, they spell it artefact instead of artifact) is a fun place with a classy indoor showroom as well as an open yard out back for browsing. If anyone can make salvage look upscale, this is the place. Check out the pictures I took of their inventory. And yes, I asked permission before snapping pics all over the store.

Notice the sold tags on some items? They weren’t my tags. I can only dream of funds like that. I’ll have more to show in the next few days from other stops. Enjoy a glimpse from California!
