We get our items primarily through salvaging or picking items directly from homes and individuals throughout the south and along the east coast. We specialize in large lot acquisitions and take-downs. On a smaller scale, we also have customers sell to us directly.
The oldest items are from the early to mid 1800s. The majority of our items originate from structures built between 1880 and 1930. Although, we do not specialize in more contemporary items from the late 1900s and early 2000s, we do have a few items from that time period.
We love talking with customers about their salvage needs. The best thing to do is contact us through email (firstname.lastname@example.org), phone/text (478.787.7584), or stopping by our stores during business hours.
The first step is to initiate contact with us (See above). The second step is to send pictures of what you want salvaged. The third step is for us to do a site visit (if necessary). The fourth step is to discuss the terms of the job. The final step is to schedule the job and perform as discussed.
Although we have a few hundred thousand pieces of inventory, we don’t have everything. We do have a strong network of salvagers across the country and can likely source something for you. We can also custom build a piece for you, using old materials, therefore fitting your project perfectly.
Although we have limited hours each week at the warehouse, we try and accommodate all customers by actively engaging over the phone, email, or through text message. Off hour visits can be accommodated based on special circumstances.
Please call 478.787.7584 to arrange a time to come pick up the item, or come to our warehouse during normal business hours.
No. If you need to arrange a time to talk or meet with someone in the woodshop, please contact us at 478.787.7584.
We predominantly use materials that have been salvaged from old homes and buildings. This includes wood products, hardware, and everything in between. The majority of our wood is first and second growth heart pine, but we do have other wood as well, including oak, cherry, fir, walnut, mahogany, cypress, cedar, and others. If we do not have a type of wood in stock that you are looking for, we are able to source from other salvage companies, or use new growth timbers from local suppliers using sustained growing methods. We do not use exotic woods in our builds, unless the wood originates from a salvaged source (i.e., old piece of furniture being upcycled or reused).
Our biggest specialty is custom made doors. We have a number of sliding and hinged examples that have been used as interior doors, exterior doors, screen doors, and home decor pieces. We can make custom door blanks, or build your project from start to finish (fabricate door, hang in jamb, install hardware, and install in your home).
That is greatly dependent on our current workload, however we strive to keep wait times to a minimum. All custom builds are built to suit. All timelines are discussed with customers prior to project acceptance.
Being a custom shop, we have great flexibility in changing things at any time throughout the build process, even after the build is complete. With that said, cost will fluctuate depending on what point the change is initiated.
Contact us via our Start a Build page, email (email@example.com), phone/text (478.787.7584), or by visiting our stores to begin the custom build you have been looking for!
First, make contact with us. Second, a representative will discuss with you regarding your project in more detail. Third, a design appointment will be scheduled, in which you will come into our warehouse and finalize your project. During this meeting, it is helpful to bring inspiration photos, and be prepared to discuss your budget and timelines. Fourth, you will pay a 50% deposit to get your job added to our project queue. Fifth, coordination will take place between you and 7th Street Salvage leading up to the start of your project (finalizing colors, design specifics, measurements, etc). Sixth, Your project begins in the shop and communication is maintained with you throughout the build. Seventh, you are alerted to its completion and schedule a pickup time. Eighth, you come to pick up your item, pay the remainder of your invoice, and take your item home to enjoy for a long time to come! If we are doing the install for you, then step nine is arranging a time for us to come out and complete your build in-home.
Yes! All of our candles are made on-site at our downtown location.
No! We use a proprietary blend of soy, coconut, and beeswax.
No. We have found that the integrity of the glass has been compromised after multiple heat-up and cool-down cycles during the life of your candle. Therefore, to eliminate the possibility of vessel malfunction, we do not refill already used jars.
Our large candle vessels make fantastic drinking glasses, vases, or storage containers. Our small candle vessels make fantastic storage containers as well. All of the glass can also be recycled if you choose to not reuse them in another manner.
There are many ways to do this. Our suggestion is to first scoop out as much of the wax that you can and remove the wick(s). Next, put your vessel upside down on a tin foil lined cookie sheet with edges. Place in an oven at 250 degrees. After approximately 10 minutes, remove the sheet and let cool slightly. You can then clean out the jar (being careful with the hot glass) with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel. Another option is to place the jar in your freezer for 15 minutes, then remove wax with a butter knife. Then wash the vessel normally and use the jar however you wish!
Absolutely! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
