In with the Old

This Friday and Saturday, the Knox Heritage Salvage Room will be open. What is the Salvage Room? It is a place for historic building materials to go rather than a landfill to be re-used in new ways. They have  pedestal sinks, beautiful wooden doors, windows with wavy glass, flooring, sturdy hardware, light fixtures, you name it.

You can go anytime during the week from 9am to 5pm if you call ahead of time, but this Friday from 9-5pm and Saturday from 9am-12pm it will be open to anyone without an appointment.

The Salvage Room is perfect if you are refurbishing an older home or building. It's also great for creative people that want to give new life to old things. There are a lot of artists in Knoxville that could draw inspiration from salvage.

If you can't make it this weekend, call their office to schedule another time to go or be on the look out for future Saturday sales each month.

For more information, go to the Knox Heritage Salvage Page. Check out this link to see ideas for making new things from salvage.
