go check out Architectural Salvage on North St. Francis.
I went there earlier in the summer and saw of all sorts of goodies. It's a great place to go if you're remodeling a house and trying to stay true to a certain period, or if you just want to browse through a.lot.of.odds and ends.

everyone's all about the birdcages these days
Just needs a little sprucing up, right?
I loved these little benches-- they had several scattered throughout the store.
I think one would be a great statement piece in an entryway.
They even have carpets!...
...and an antique library card catalog
