Tony’s tips for sourc­ing ar­chi­tec­tural sal­vage

Period Living - - Reclamation -

● Do not try to re­move any moss or growth on an item for out­door use as this is what makes it look gen­uine and it is how it should be left.

● There are lots of re­pro­duc­tions out there and some­times it is very hard to tell the dif­fer­ence from a gen­uine orig­i­nal. If you’re not sure, walk away.

● Most an­tique items bought to­day are not ex­pected to go up in value as they of­ten did, so just buy to en­joy. If they do start to in­crease in value it will be a bonus.
