Historic Seattle Home Parts

[photopress:earthwise.jpg,thumb,alignright]If you get a chance, and live in an old historic Seattle home, visit Earthwise Salvage.  It’s located behind AquaQuip on 4th Ave S under the West Seattle (Spokane) Bridge.  I found the store personnel Amy and Diana, have just the right balance of letting you browse and being helpful when you ask questions.

This piece was easily one of the best of store.  Can you imagine the grand old home this one came from?  Double sinks in the master are the norm for master baths today, but not when this one was made.  Would be nice if those who brought them also tagged the piece’s history showing where the piece came from.

Kim just loved this big old solid core door

My favorite wasn’t for sale.  Amy suggest that MAYBE the owner would part with it for $5,000, but no promises.  Fab for a turned staircase with a window at the landing.

Tons of knobs

Whether you are looking for something big or a replacement part, it’s a great place.  Kim said when he lived in his old house in Denny Blaine he was looking for a replacement exterior light, and this place had exactly what he was looking for many years ago.

So for those of you going through what he did, looking to replace one fixture of an old house without changing them all out to new fixtures, Earthwise Salvage is just the place to find it.
