A Guide to The Old House Vintage Market: Our Salvage and Upcycled Vendors
Welcome to your official guide to The Old House Vintage Market Vendors. Each post this week will focus on the main genres of vendors we have and, boy, do we have some awesome vendors.
So what can you expect from our salvage and upcycled vendors?
Bill Pfister has a collection of architectural salvage that is so profoundly divine that if you are even a little interested in obtaining chippy corbels, industrial lighting, iron railings from the south, fretwork, old wood, industrial carts, old laundry bins, locker baskets, he is your new best friend.
Nikki Reindel of Artistic Details breathes new life into old objects to create a look you didn’t know you loved- projectors find new life as a table lamp, wood and pipe side tables, and wet bars made out of old trunks that every imbiber of spirits needs in their own dwelling. Need some unique containers? How about boxes made out of rulers?
Tony Wilson of Rare Finds has salvaged barn wood tables, lockers out of now demolished schools, old rickshaws, antique doors made into tables, old wheels made into coffee tables, shutters, birdcages and laterns. Rare Finds has some amazing pieces of salvage that are awaiting their new look while others pieces are waiting for you to do the honors.
Dwayne Colly of D&C Industrial Remix can speak on salvage, and what a treasure could become, indefinitely- and so could I. Dwayne and his wife have a bottomless supply of vision and their ideas have no bounds… and their merchandise will prove this fact, hands down. I recently toured The Colly household and their treasure trove of some of the best projects in waiting that I have ever seen. Old chicken carriers, fruit crates, school lockers, metal gears, huge industrial casters and one to die for (no pun intended) coffin carrier- with enormous wheels and all the industrial goodness you could possibly want. Dwayne is also a woodworker and a metal smith…serious contender for one of the best upcyclers ever.
Jennifer Jacobus of Junk Serendipity has some of the most fantastic salvaged old car parts- front ends, grills, tailgates to old Chevy’s and Ford’s, as well as hand painted signs and rusty crusty antique scales.
Steve Holdren and Ray Brazil’s business, Kountry Klutter from the Junkin’ Cowboys is prime for pickin’- old windows made into cabinets with salvaged corrugated tin and weathered wood and side tables with an old locker basket drawer, old steel wheels that they encourage you to make into a hanging pot holder and soda crates with inspiration thrown in to make you see it as a chandelier.
Eric Kleinwachter of Reclaimed Relics makes some of the most drool worthy upcycled pieces and I have found myself taking multiple pictures of his merchandise at other markets. Picture a factory cart made into a kitchen island… Eric also has enormous family sizes antique sleds, old gas station signs, windmill tails, factory work benches and industrial metal bases used for your next dining room table.
Each of our salvage and upcycled vendors will have so much more than can be listed here so c’mon out and see what they brought!
