Guilded Salvage Antiques
is a real "mom and pop" shop. Scott Rogers and I work directly with contractors and homeowners to obtain salvage rights to local houses, churches, and schools that are slated for demolition. Most of these places were built between 1880 and 1940.
We are both very hands-on, but Scott does most of the removal of kitchen cupboards, claw foot bathtubs, doors, and light fixtures. Then together, we re-assemble, clean, and display the pieces to sell in the 1890s former lumber mill that we just moved into in north Minneapolis. Previously, we had a shop for nine years in the northeast part of the city.
