Latest Excavations

Stanford White Building - Interior renovation

What a shame! At least the Landmarks Society was able to preserve the exterior of this famous Stanford White building in Manhattan and will reinstall the original mantel which 100 years ago was 100 years old when it was first installed!  The architecturologists were able to salvage some of the interior items prior to this complete interior renovation including some wooden mantels, lighting and doors, doors, doors!  Take a look at just a sample...


New Jersey Building - Copper Dome and Cornice

This building in New Jersey had copper all along the edge of the roof with great architectural detail.  Egg n' dart edging, dental molding and leafy corbels.  Also take a look at the terrific dome!



Cooper Union Windows

Copper clad windows galore!  This building, the Hewitt Building erected in 1912 housed the Cooper Union Art School's art studios, public programs and architectural archives.  The windows, all copper clad have either wavy glass or chicken wire.  Some of these windows are 9 feet tall - with their rich weathered patina - these make great mirrors...




Miami Beach Antiques Show

This year we set up at this high-end antiques show with one of most outstanding selections of fine architectural and antique items.  From marble mantels from the Plaza Hotel to four foot sconces from the Fountainne Bleu Resort in Miami... Take a look....




Mantel Season

For all of you who are in the cold of winter... you know nothing beats sitting around the fireplace and getting warm after being subject to the winter elements!  100 years ago this was the source of heat in homes and many builders and architects didn't spare when it came to the design and detail of the mantelpiece.  At Olde Good Things, we specialize in salvaging fireplace mantels in all styles from very simple and small to ornate and excessive.  Remember, we purchased and removed the marble mantels from the Plaza Hotel in NYC during their recent renovation.  Take a look at just a sample of the mantels currently in our inventory...




We're open 7 days - Monday - Sunday 9:00am-6:00pm.

Customer Showcase


If you have been to our National Warehouse in Scranton, Pennsylvania, then you know that Olde Good Things is not lacking in a wide selection of interior and exterior doors.  In fact we currently have over 3,000 salvaged doors in stock.  For those of you wanting to incorporate original doors into your new renovation, we are a great door source...

This customer in California found that out... These French doors are nearly 100 years old and add character and architectural detail to this Spanish style bathhouse... 








We work with the trade to help add architectural accents to your line of merchandise... Here's an example, this dealer added building stones to kitchen designs and over the mantel detail... Nice touch!
