|You'll be looking for this sign.|
Drive east down Broadway in Nordeast and turn onto Quincy Avenue NE. Make sure to be driving your Land Rover or Humvee, because this street is so dilapidated and treacherous, you’re likely to break an axel after the first twenty yards. Soldier on through lakes of mud water and moonscape until you reach Architectural Antiques.
|Lake effect on Quincy is coming from Mt. Snowmore. That is not a normal hill.|
Once you go inside, you’ll be bombarded my all things old; salvaged from properties less fortunate than mine or my north side compatriots. Behold the treasure-trove and get ready to empty your wallet, because these things ain’t cheap. Never the less, I found Architectural Antiques to have better stock than Bauer Brothers, and is considerably closer to NoMi than Arts and Architecture.
|Looks just like my cabinets.|
|Back in the warehouse.|
|This is a very odd looking, old, light fixture.|
|Nice touch with the Gothic glass work.|
|Do they have enough light fixtures?|
|In case you were thinking "no" to the last question...|
|For the kitchen...|
|I think I just stumbled onto a gold mine.|
|They even have the ornamental stuff.|
|Need a door knob or handle?|
|Look at the size of that thing!|
|The most interesting menagerie of old stuff I've ever seen.|
|Beveled glass in the door, gotta love it!|
|Somebody I know has this exact same fixture... Who could it be?|
|Need a fireplace mantle?|
|This buffet is in beautiful condition.|
|Ahh! I must have one of these for myself!|
