If any of you have seen HGTV's "Salvage Dawgs," I live about a five minute drive from their warehouse, "Black Dog Salvage." It is one of my favorite places in town.
My mom is in town visiting while her new house is being built. We thought we'd check out what Black Dog had to decorate her new house with.
Here's what Google has to say at Black Dog Salvage: "Acclaimed warehouse carrying an eclectic variety of antiques and restored furniture in an airy space."
When homes in our area are gutted and remodeled, all the pieces of the home that are salvageable go to Black Dog right down to the nails! Here is what we found!
|Jail doors. . . Just kidding. I don't really know|
what these are, but they look like jail doors.
You can buy separate pieces to construct your own staircase. . .
. . .Or you can just buy the stairs.
They had so many mantles in many different sizes, woods, designs, etc. All of them were gorgeous!
There were many different lighting options. My mom bought the chandelier on the left for her new home!!
Vanities and sinks. . .
|There was an endless supply of door knobs and hardware.|
|Antique Pianos. . .|
. . . and TONS of wall decorations.
Coke Products and tons of old glass jars.
. . . old EKG reader. Kinda makes me want to watch Roy and Johnny and good old Squad 51! ("Emergency").
Spotlight and, one of my faves, the stomach roller massager!
KNOBS KNOBS KNOBS
A box of Tetanus. Just kidding. But seriously, they have boxes of old nails.
Old window hardware, locks and pulley systems. . .
They even have plumbing parts! Probably not up to code, but might be cool when designing a movie set or something.
THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO "HMMMM. . . ."
Mermaid statue and bench made out of a Chevy truck. . .
. . . Real turtle shells and a lava lamp with a floral arrangement around it. Seems hazardous to me, but whatever.
This place is huge and there's no way I could possibly relay it's massive amount of inventory and awesomeness through words. You must check it out if you are in Virginia. You won't be disappointed. Or check out the show "Salvage Dawgs" on HGTV.
