Pasadena Architectural Salvage

Can I just say how much I friggin love the Pasadena Architectural Salvage Yard?. There, I just did. And I don't even own a Craftsman home. Not that it matters (OK, well, maybe it does a bit because all the inventory is skewed that way), but let me just say to you bungalow-dwellers: drop everything and go. All the inventory here is recycled from homes that were junked or renovated, but these folks here have picked over the rubble and hauled back top-notch quality items: everything from front doors to knobs to stained glass windows to antique grate covers!

You can spend a good bit of time here: the staff is friendly, helpful, and not overbearing. The prices may be on the higher end--but I have no qualms paying the extra dinero if it means less time spent poring over eBay for something that's just not as perfect.

Check out their inventory online to see a sampling of what they have to offer.
