Second Use Salvage

This week, I went to Seattle to have lunch with my dad before he had his radiation treatment. Since I was traveling kid-free and had a bit extra time, I decided to stop in a salvage store that I have dreamed of visiting.  The store is called Second Use, and it is seriously a junkers dream! (is “junkers” even a word?)

Here are a few of the really fun things that were selling….

There were a few glass cabinets that had tons of these sparkly doorknobs.

And look at all these fun hinges! I love how they organized them.

And these old chairs for kiddos.  They would be darling tucked in the corner of a room…Maybe with a big fern on it. Or in a front yard with a flower pot.

There was even an entire section dedicated to old mantels!

I’ve mentioned before that I’d like to a new door for our shed.  I was overwhelmed with their door selection.  {This picture only shows one row of their doors.  I think they had maybe 4 or 5 rows,}  But I had a headache (got a bit lost on the way there) and had to pee (I drank a diet coke on my drive to Seattle. Bad move when there is a possibility of getting lost!) All that to say, I wasn’t in the door shopping mood by the time I got there.

Look at this fun wood!? I’m sure there are tons of projects that this would be perfect for (but they were rather pricey…I think maybe $200 per slab?)

They even had an outside.  But you can see it was raining…and I had a headache…and had to pee.  So I skipped the outside this time around. But I’m sure there were plenty of other gems out there.

I may have to plan another trip someday when I have more time to browse.
