Can you say - Salvage Yard?

I really Did It! I got to go to a real salvage place! You know, the kind you see on TV. The kind with all the cool stuff that you want to take home and transform for your home.

This one was found by my Hubby in St. Louis called Fellenz. It's full to the roof of architectural artifacts! This is what you see when you drive up. Iron gates that when peeked over, rows of fireplace mantels.
It's not real bright so they provide you with flashlights. It is very organized though, but as you would expect dusty and dirty. This is the main aisle. Off this feeds rows going both direction every few feet.
A row of newel posts...
Old iron fireplace inserts...
Old iron gates and grates...and sooooo much more!~
Initially, we didn't think our cheap selves could afford to buy anything, but this place was very affordable to us. This is what we bought. Hubby collects old iron heat grates ($15), and odd bricks ($5) and we collect all kinds of corbels. The large ($20) and the small ($7).
 We even ran into a small flea market next door and picked up these large spindles for $2 each. The will make great tall candle stands or be used in other projects.
 Here is how I used the corbels....

Here is how Hubby uses the grates to decorate the landscaping...(look for arrows)

See the one mounted to the tree?
 I would like to go to another salvage yard again sometime!
Because we need more chippy junk!              Smile...

  1. Oh my - how I could spend hours in a place like that! You found some real treasures!
    'love & hugs from afar'

  2. How fun! We went to a place like that here in Dallas last year and nothing was affordable. Seriously, I'm not sure how they even sell any of it.

  3. Thank you for sharing! I live about 40 minutes from St Louis and I am on vacation soon. Oh I am heading here. If you have more pictures please share. Thanks. Tracy

  4. Such great pieces! I love that grate, so beautiful! That's an amazing place.

  5. WoW! I want to go THERE!
    Luv that typewriter fragment on the capital!

  6. Great finds! I would love to get to a place like that too, but it could be very, very dangerous!

  7. That must be what junkers' heaven looks like!

  8. Terry, what a great place! And reasonable prices. Love your good junk...Thanks for sharing your always fabulous finds at Revisionary Life!


It makes me smile to hear from you!
