One House's Loss is Another's Gain

The latest salvaged items for StuccoHouse..... We will try not to think about the house that will be losing these items, just the excitement at StuccoHouse to be getting them :-)

That is one great doorbell.

Funny, I never imagined myself thinking that.

Anyway, where'd you get it, and if I may ask, how much did it set you back?

Very lovely ceiling light fixture! Lucky you!

Now I wish I'd gotten our old door bell to work. Someone butchered our trying to fix it, and then replaced it with one of those new wireless ones. We may just put one of those old mechanical ones in. Salvage always seem bittersweet, since it always ends up in the demise of another old house.

A few days ago, my husband sent me a link to what was new at the ReUse Center (he was scoping out the tin ceiling). After looking at your blog, I see that some of it is not available any longer!

I wish I had space to rescue all of those beautiful built-ins that are being sold off. There oughtta be a law...

Hmm...though I had responded to this earlier. As luck would have it there were no other bids on the doorbell and I ended up paying $15.

Both the the buffets as well as the collonades were sold, if it makes you feel any better. I saw them in person and they were both pretty spectacular. Original metal hardware and all. I agree, I'm just not sure what people are thinking when they sell that stuff off, but I guess we are lucky that they are being saved.
