Architectural Salvage Twin Cities

Finding something for your home that is salvaged can be both challenging and rewarding all in one.  Thankfully, there are many local sources filled floor to ceiling with historic, unique architectural elements.  These shops have everything from one of a kind entryways to mantels, lighting, hardware, stone and iron pieces. Whether you are looking to add a one of a kind element to your home or simply looking for a weekend activity, browsing these historic pieces is sure to be interesting. Many of these pieces even come with a story of their history. Here are some of our favorite local salvage shops and what they have to offer.

Architectural Antiques– This may be the most well known architectural salvage showroom in the Twin Cities. It is well organized, and has a wide range of products. Everything from doors, windows, tiles, hardware to more unique art pieces. They also sell most of their pieces on the website!
Gilded Salvage– This store has the typical architectural salvaged pieces most people will be searching for. Everything from doors, cabinets,  and bath tubs to hardware. 
Art & Architecture– After a visit here, this past week, I can say this store is huge and carries pretty much everything.  From antique signage, lighting, furniture and stained glass. There is also an outdoor section filled with ironwork.
