Architectural salvage places. I believe this has become a regular weekend hobby. Last weekend, we had went to Community Forklift where my friend was searching for a piece of vintage glass for her china cabinet redo. Unfortunately, she is still on a hunt for the piece of glass. This past weekend she decided to hit up Second Chance. It is a nonprofit that provides people, materials and the environment with a second chance. They deconstruct buildings and homes, salvage usable materials and make those available to the public. With the revenue generated, they provide job training and workforce development for those with employment obstacles in the Baltimore region.
My coworker who have also been to this place before said it used to be about 5 times as big. Where items were spread out across several warehouses. They have now condensed down to one warehouse but it is still big with lots of items. I thought it was well organized, they separated out items into different sections such as glass in one area and wood in another. There was even different "show rooms" where they had displayed items to create a room.
My friend successfully found a piece of vintage glass for $30!
I believe this is also a great place if you're looking for vintage/rustic pieces for a wedding. Like these shutters below, so many different colors, can use this as decoration or escort cards.
There was even a final clearance section where there were further discounts. What I liked about this place was that they have several dates on the price tag. Once the date passes, they price of the items goes down.
I have found my next DIY project with this wood round table top. Would love to add some hairpin legs and create a new coffee table.
