I decided to head out to Lancaster PA yesterday and just spend some time at Architectural Salvage yards trying to find a door to replace the one that is currently on the house. No luck. I guess I'll keep checking craigslist, but I'll probably just end up buying new. I was able to get these 2 exterior lights for the front though--and the price wasn't too bad, ...only $80bucks. He even helped me find the appropriate porcelian insert for the bulb which I'll put in after I clean these up. Each glass has a crack in it which probably helped with the price, but I can just turn it toward the back. Far cheaper than Rejuvination

 I went to many salvage yards, but was my favorite. The owner was very knowledgable and helpful. If you live in PA and are anywhere near it, you should give it a try.

I went to a lot of salvage yards that felt more like I was walking into an Urban Outfitters with loud music and high prices.

 I'd love to go to the salvage yard in Baltimore called Second Chance. It's just a bit too far for me. Anyone been there?

Do you have a favorite salvage yard?
