Historic HousepartsPosted: August 10, 2010
As a wedding gift, my brother is crafting us a beautiful bookcase for our home. The piece is almost finished and it’s ready hinges, stain and the perfect cabinet latch. We looked at pulls and latches at The Home Depot and Lowe’s and didn’t find what we were looking for. My brother checked Woodcraft and still didn’t find what we were looking for. Finally, Marshall searched the internet and at lunch today we took a field trip into the city to Historic Houseparts, Architectural Salvage and Restoration Supplies. Here is what we choose…
Albeit a little eerie, Historic Houseparts had exactly what we were looking for. They had hundreds of latches, hinges and more hardware than I have seen in a long time. You can search through hardware and old parts pulled directly from local historic homes or you can choose from brand new fabrications. In addition to hardware, they have historic light switches, lighting, clocks, columns, doors, windows, molding, sinks, bathtubs and more.
If you love all things historic and vintage and you happen to be in the South Wedge, visit Historic Houseparts or visit their website.
