A & R Salvage

Daddy needed to get some small granite pieces. They are for bases, for some sculptures he's been working on. In the past he's gone to places where they make grave stones, and counter tops to get scraps. It's never cheap though. 

He thought about a Salvage Yard that isn't too far from our house. I know this sounds crazy, but I love looking through places like that. You never know what you are going to find. They always have tons of old doors, windows, and more.

This had a whole floor that was bathtubs, sinks and toilets. The boys thought it was the funniest thing ever! Mica said, "Isaak think, someone could just use that toilet in the middle of the room!" They both giggled. Isaak said, "Ya and we could take off all our clothes and take a bath right now." More laughter.

Never mind the fact that none of those bathroom things weren't actually there to use.

Daddy got his granite for a steal practically. He was a happy camper that day.

The boys loved running around the outside of the place.

Do you like vintage things, looking at antique shops, scrap yards and garage sales?

If I had creativity these days, I would have a blast in there... but nope- not so much, right now.

My mom is one who loves salvage yards. I don't have any close to me where I like to go, but I do love thrift stores and yard sales. I find all kids of goodies at those!

I love vintage stuff. There is no shortage of antique shops around my neck of the woods, either.

We tried to go to a salvage yard a few weeks ago and they were closed... can't remember what we were looking for at the time.
