Use this comprehensive guide to locate architectural salvage stores near you, or to browse the websites of architectural salvage stores across the country, many of which sell their wares online.

Some of the “old” houses we feature are actually newly built—but they have the patina of age because architectural salvage was incorporated into their design and construction. Salvage stores can be found in most major cities and all regions, offering everything from windows and doors to hardware, plumbing, and lighting, from tile and stoves to unique architectural fragments.

These places are “a cross between a Hollywood prop department and an elephant burial ground,” says Thomas O’Gorman, author of New Spaces from Salvage (Barron’s Educ., 2002). All those unattached parts, all those relics of the past—it’s a surreal experience and an architectural education. The urge to take something home and make it your own is almost irresistible.
