 Latest Excavations

    Central Pennsylvania Home

Here you see just one of many homes slated for demolition in this small Pennsylvania town to make way for a new hospital location.  Concerned owners wishing not to lose this history for good called on the architecturologists to salvage their history...


    Pennsylvania Catholic Institutional Building

The building was built in the late 40's and is now undergoing an interior remodeling project.  We were able to acquire some interesting items including pews, built-in cabinets, corrugated glass dividers and stainless steel kitchen counters, lighting and more.


   NYC Marble Mantels

Just in... Eastlake style and Victorian marble mantels from Upper East Side Manhattan Apartment


Two with heavily carved detail

These can be seen at our 24th Street, Chelsea Location.


Customer Showcase

New Chicago Restaurant

Recently opened "wine bar" Italian restaurant on State Street
in Chicago's River North section...

This unique restaurant was designed with many salvaged architectural items from Olde Good Things... including glass from windows we salvaged from the Flat Iron Building in NYC which they used for mirrors, as well as subway tile lining the walls throughout the entrance and dining room, antique heart pine flooring which was salvaged from beams from a Brooklyn sewing factory and an old deco built-in refrigerator with beveled glass front.  Nice stuff.. and nice dining experience too! 


C.M. - Customer from Sag Harbour, New York...

When their new addition was coming into the family... it was time for just that... a new addition.  Here's what C.M. told us upon completion..

"It was actually a pretty big project we undertook, taking a 1200 sq ft 1920's cottage and turning it into a 4000 sq ft house without changing the look of it from the street -- and it worked!  We're very pleased. We took the front entrance and put it on the side of the house, where we used the door and sconces we got from you. We have received many compliments from people saying 'where on earth did you get those? Have they been in your family for years?' And the door is a big hit, too. It's huge!"

Many customers like our unique line of ceiling tin wall hangings and framed mirrors...
Here's just a sample of the variety of possible design usages set up by one of our regular buyers
at her shop in Michigan.


If you are a customer and would like your Olde Good Things design idea featured in our "Customer Showcase" section, send us an email and some pictures and we'll include it in our next newsletter!
