Here is a little preview:

Favorite Salvage Yards & Architectural Salvage
Santa Fe Wrecking Company
1600 S. Santa Fe Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90021, on the corner of Santa Fe Ave and Olympic Blvd in downtown Los Angeles, ph: 213.623.3119.
They have a large supply of doors, cast iron tubs, toilets and sinks.

Silverlake Architectural Salvage
1085 Manzanita St, Los Angeles, CA 90029, between Sunset Blvd and Santa Monica Blvd, ph: 323.667.2875.
A real gem. Their inventory is constantly changing. They have furniture, built-ins, light fixtures, a large supply of doors and over sized windows, hardware, and bath fixtures. They will negotiate on price.

Pasadena Architectural Salvage
30 S. San Gabriel Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91107, ph: 626.535.9655
Inventory includes mantels, lighting, stained glass, iron work, plumbing fixtures, door & window hardware and furniture representing the Arts & Crafts, Spanish Revival, Art Nouveau and Victorian periods.

Freeway Building Materials
1124 S. Boyle Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90023, at Opal St. between 7th and 8th Streets, ph: 323.261.8904.
This place was featured on season 2 of “Top Design” and is a favorite of Hollywood prop masters and set designers. Large supply of doors, stained glass windows, door knobs, old brick, flagstones, lumber and unusual objects. The prices are negotiable.

Olde Good Things
1800 S. Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90015, ph: 213.746.8600.
Architectural antiques, artifacts and oddities. It is worth a trip. I go here if I am looking for something out of the ordinary to decorate a room. I find their prices on the higher side.
