Salvage in Sarasota

Sarasota Salvage

Sarasota Architectural Salvage 

Just up the street from the house that we've rented in Sarasota are a few antique stores.  They are very large and full of wrought iron garden benches, arches, pergolas, etc.  There are a lot of old garden structures around here.

The Sarasota Architectural Salvage (SAS) seems to find old everything from everywhere.  There are Spanish, Asian, nautical, farm themes in their furniture and accessories.  I enjoyed the former boat wood with many layers of peeling paint used for table tops and chair seats.  It was a whole warehouse of nicely posed peeling paint.  There are old pieces from the Ringling Circus, and columns from the Ringling Hotel that was demolished.  The Mermaid theme is abundant.  It makes one realize how long Florida has been in the tourism business.
