Just what it says. We were tipped off to Olde Good Things by a few readers who recommended it for its salvaged hardwood flooring and the fact that they have "everything." We were cautioned, however, that it is expensive and "by supporting them, you're supporting the Church of Bible Understanding (COBU)."
In addition to their three stores, NY Mag points out that "the owner's booth is a regular at the 26th Street flea market."
Olde Good Things reclaims architectural pieces of buildings, including:
original hardware and doorknobs, period mantels, entry doors, decorative iron, antique and contemporary lighting, bronze and brass castings, structural columns, corbels, terra cotta and building stones, garden ornaments, stained and leaded glass windows, transoms, wooden moldings...
They also sell tin framed mirrors, wood flooring, and home furnishings. To see their warehouse, go on their video tour. (Thanks, Gina & Justin!)
