Terms of Sale
I accept returns only if my description is inaccurate. For example, if I pull
an item from a building that I believe to be original to the house and it is
later discovered to be a reproduction, or if I enter an incorrect measurement,
I will allow the buyer to return the item. I describe all my items as
accurately as possible with descriptions and often pictures of any damage. I
try to measure within 1/8 of an inch.
My salvage business was born of necessity in 1993 when I started restoring an
old Victorian home that had seen better days. I needed doors, staircase parts,
fireplace mantles and more, so I contacted the owners of a few local buildings
that were scheduled for demolition. I found and purchased all of the things
that I needed for my project and lots of extra treasures which I eventually
resold. 17 years later this is still my full time job! I salvage whatever I can
think can be reused as long as there is room in my warehouse. The warehouse is
open for treasure hunting anytime by appointment. Just contact me to schedule a
day and time! Thanks for visiting. Steve and Michelle
