Arrow Architectural Salvage?

Are there many (or any) Architectural Salvage Yards in South Carolina?

I'm not looking for antique or collectible shops but true salvage yards for old doors, bath tubs, stoves, refrigerators, sinks, mantles etc?

Any recommendations would be most appreciated!

Does that mean no one has any ideas?

I've got two, I just need to look them up.

One is on 61 just next to Hocus Pocus costume store, maybe 1011 St Andrews Blvd?
The other one is in Mt Pleasant, off 17A, near the old K-Mart.
There's also one on Meeting St in N. Charleston, but it's more commercial.

I'll try to track them down.

There's a Habitat for Humanity Re-Store in Charleston. I hear they sometimes have good stuff though I have never been to one of their stores.

That's a pretty good thought.
Although the items tend to be either donated or left over from construction projects, they often have some useful items, at a great price, for a good cause.

There are two stores I know of one is in Summerville for Dorchester's H4H & the other is on John's Island. The John's Island one is pretty big.

I don't think that is quite what I'm looking for, but I appreciate the suggestion.

Santa Fe Wrecking Company - Los Angeles California - Architectural salvage antique building materials plumbing doors hardware claw foot tubs

If you head to that link, that is more or less what I am looking for. I guess I should have put that link in with my original question.

Thanks again!

Default from Melinda

OC Girl, I can't locate (thus far) a "real" arch salvage, but not finished flipping rocks. There isn't anything like Architectural Salvage in Pasadena, nor the one in Silverlake. Sante Fe wrecking was fabulous (used to live in a loft down the street), but you might not find it here. As mentioned, I haven't given up hope, because many of the stores don't label themselves properly making the hunt a bit tougher.

South Carolina in general has loads of old towns with antique stores, you're just gonna have to be adventurous and hit the road.

ps. same for vintage clothing, it's not in Charleston in regards to the way we're used to finding it in the mecca of LA.

Orange County Girl did you find any other salvage yards in your quest for old? There is a once a month flea market in Darlington,SC that is a good location for finding olds and ends at good prices. gboykin
