Day Trip

To cap off a fun-filled time working and playing together over the winter break, Jeff took me to Southern Accents, an architectural salvage company about half an hour away. It's all antique and historic elements and structures that have been saved from old homes and buildings in the region. Southern Accents is one of the largest salvage companies in the southeast, and they have an impressive collection.

We enjoyed touring through their multiple warehouses and the outdoor "plumbing garden". They have an astounding selection of mantles and doors, but there are also plenty of light fixtures, stained and leaded glass windows, drawer pulls, hinges, knobs, flooring, banisters, claw foot tubs, faucets, tile, ironwork, you name it!

Need a giant wall sconce, anyone?

Just a tiny fraction of the neat things we saw!
