Yesterday Hubby and I visited my folks down in southeastern MA. We love checking out antique stores, so my Mom suggested visiting a salvage store in New Bedford. These folks, New England Demolition & Salvage, rip out the cool architectural stuff like banisters, doors, windows and sinks from buildings before tearing them down or turning them in minimalist luxury condos.
I can not even begin to describe all the neat stuff we saw (a train ticket booth, a humungous bar complete with back mirror, fantastic wood work columns and 10 taps). Just before we left, an employee encouraged us to check out the second floor, “It’s a real treat.” And she was right.
