The Olde New England Salvage website has such a huge number of items under ”Materials” that I’ve taken to visiting it one category at a time.  Last week I was looking at doors and was amazed at some of the low prices for authentic 18th Century pieces.

   Check out the selection below and see for yourself.

   When Olde New England Salvage’s owner, Glenn Pianka, tells you how old something is, you can believe it.  Glenn is the former President of the Lebanon Historical Society and put in twenty years with the Connecticut State Police. “I like to be fair with people,” Glenn told me. More than fair, I’d say.
