I'm crazy about all things decorative arts, and when I find something that combines that love with conservation, some serious happy dancing occurs. I have a habit of bookmarking things in my del.icio.us with the intention of going back to them and forgetting where I saw them in the first place...this is one of those things. Oops!
Salvage One is a business based in Chicago that literally saves architectural elements from the wrecking ball. They have some incredible stuff, too, from gorgeous Gothic doors (of course) to an incredible antique rickshaw. They also have loads of beautiful leaded and stained glass, as well as an amazing collection of vintage print blocks (see top).
