Art & Architecture has a variety of items for a variety of budgets.
Remodeling with salvaged materials is more sustainable than using new materials because you keep waste out of landfills and prevent new materials from being manufactured. It can also add character to a room that a newer material could never yield. Minneapolis-based Art & Architecture sells unique salvaged materials for a wide range of remodeling needs. Art & Architecture specializes in antique lighting fixtures, hardware, mantels, windows and other architectural items. The best part about visiting the store is being able to search for just the right piece of hardware. They have a variety of sizes that are organized and easy to sort through. Their inventory is constantly changing and here is a small sample of what they have to offer right now.
