Architectural Salvage Heaven {Black Dog Salvage}

This weekend we traveled to Virginia…to the Salem/Roanoke area where my hubby had a tournament.

For a few years now I have always wanted to go to Black Dog Salvage in Roanoke…

…..however the “tournament schedule” did not lend for me to make that trip.

But on Saturday…I had some time between games and traveled to Roanoke and visited the place…

…..where you hear the angels sing as soon as you walk through the door!

Rows and rows of shutters, doors, windows…..

More vintage plumbing fixtures..and there was a very large section in the parking lot…

…..just filled with vintage plumbing fixtures.

I saw a gorgeous large sink that I would love to have in a future garden shed….

…..but no room in the van…filled with baseball equipment!

As we were walking through the building we discovered that in the back portion…

…..there were many, many gorgeous booths of private vendors.

As we were leaving…one of the owners (you may recognize him from the show “Salvage Dawgs)

…..was inspecting a fabulous sink brought in by who I am assuming was a picker.
