Saving Grace Salvage Company

Open for the season! Housed in an old flour mill built in 1866, Saving Grace is a feast for the eyes.  An eclectic mix of salvaged architectural pieces, antiques and up-cycled decor, you should allow at least an hour to wander the three floors.  I suggest making several passes from different directions just to be sure you've seen it all.

The ten foot tall, yellow front door has been open for four years now, but only from May thru October, and only on Fridays and Saturdays.  But to anyone renovating, decorating or scrounging for their old house, it's definitely worth juggling your schedule. 

The front yard is loaded with garden and barnyard primitives - enamel, stainless washtubs, terracotta - not to mention this rack of vintage bicycles.

But one step thru that yellow door, and your senses reel.
I'll just stop talking now, and let you take it all in.

The kitchen area is probably my favorite.

But this is my daughter's favorite view.

Found the shifter knob for my Ford Shoebox on one of these shelves.

Somewhere in this photo are five sewing machines.

And I didn't take any photos of the basement.  Truly, if you are in the area, this is a must-see.  Or visit their facebook page to see more photos of the awesome-ness that is Saving Grace. 


  1. What a wonderful place! It is truly a feast for the eyes. I live in the SW where folks moved to but didn't bring all of their cool stuff. What little is here is awfully pricey. Enjoy that very cool store.

  2. I think I saw about a gazillion things that I would have loved to take home. What an awesome place!

  3. Looks like a neat shop! Thanks for posting about it. Blessings from Ringle, WI.

  4. I wanna go!!! I think my daughter would agree with your daughter -she is a horse fanatic. Only 5 years old, our daughter has made it clear she wants to run a horse farm when she grows up and be a cow boy. It will be interesting to see how much that chances or if it does at all, through the years.
    I really like their bright yellow door...everything looks so inviting. thank you for taking us with on your virtual shopping spree!

    1. As much as I wanted to sew frilly eyelet dresses, my daughter has made it clear that she loves animals and the out-of-doors. So I guess I'll be sewing camping vests instead! I did get to make a cowgirl outfit for Halloween last year, complete with fringed chaps. It was sort of like sewing ruffles... :)

  5. Oh, there are so many things that catch my eye! Wishing we had a shop like that close to home...what a treasure hunt!

  6. Girl after my own heart! Wish it was within driving distance....thanks for sharing.


Thanks for your thoughts! Come back to visit again soon!
