Flea Market Style Magazines are IN!

We finally have the new issue of Flea Market Style Magazine in stock! The thing I love most about this mag is you get to enjoy it over and over. I can go through a "BH& G" in 15 minutes or less, and pick out everything that is interesting or stunning. Not so with FMS!  You can spend hours or days scouring each page and each photo. Come back to it a few days later and you will find even more great ideas and eye candy that you didn't see before. I just found an old issue, and it was just as enjoyable the second time around!
So...We have plenty of copies at the shop for $9.95, or you can order them below, with priority shipping for $14.95, delivered right to your doorstep!

I have just a few of the Spring 2012 issue left, if you missed one. If you would like both issues we will ship together for just $24.99.  Sorry, domestic US orders only.

The winner of our Junk Bonanza give away is Kelly Truman! Kelly, please send your address to email:

Architectural Salvage & Euro Treasures in Salt Lake City

 Kind of like people who live in New York and have never visited the statue of Liberty, it has been years since I have gone antiquing in Salt Lake City, even though I was born and raised there. I go back at least once a year, but I usually spend all of my time visiting with family. I was lucky this year to have a couple of extra hours so I Googled "Architectural Salvage" from my phone and it led me to "Georges Architectural Salvage". From the front it looked deceptively small and a little bit intimidating
