Salvage Antiques Vintage Etc.
Salvage, Antiques, Vintage, Etc. was the evolution of an idea. After living several years in Denver and not being able to find quality salvage for our remodeling projects we started thinking, why can’t we do this? We rented a storage unit in Lakewood and started filling it up with salvage from around Denver. We also got a storage unit in Ohio and started filling that up when visiting family. After we decided to leave the Denver area we purchased a house with a 2,000 square foot workshop. We were able to create a home retail location (by appointment only) and a workshop and we consolidated the storage units. A year of traveling to shows, renting booth spaces at antique stores and flea markets we decided to get our own building in Florence. We had 2 weeks between closing on the building and our opening date to remodel and repair the building. Once completed, Canon City Architectural Salvage moved into the new Salvage Antiques Vintage Etc. (SAVE) building in Florence along with several vendors who rent space inside the new business. SAVE is not only a retail store specializing in Architectural Salvage and Mid Century Modern but also a warehouse for building materials needed for our projects. The Rosedale Vintage Mobile Home Park is filled with fixtures and furniture from our store. Vicky, the 4 unit Victorian we sold to investors, was also completed with reclaimed doors, hardware and railing from SAVE. Customers from New York to Japan have shopped with us for unique and one of a kind items.
