Sweet Salvage Is One!!

Has it only been a year since Sweet Salvage came to town and made our city a better place?
I was there the day it opened and have been back every month since,
as guest artist and as a shopper. 

This group of talented ladies (and Robert too) have brought to Phoenix
something unique, something that didn't exist before and their creativity
and excellence at their craft has enriched our community on SO many levels.
I am privileged to know, love and work with this Sweet Gang.
Here is to many more years of bringing beautiful "junk" to Phoenix.
You guys just keep getting better and better!
You inspire me and many other to create and make things
beautiful everyday.

Here are some Sweet Salvage treats I have found throughout the year:
This great galvanized tray
some rusty industrial trays and
 green tool box to organize the stuff in the kitchen

this cute little French light with the perfect green and turquoise shade
all the cute things on this tray
this crazy rusty radiator fan---like from a car!?!
You can't find this kinda stuff anywhere else in town.

 Lots of stuff from this picture came from Sweet Salvage...
And of course, my all time favorite Sweet Salvage find,
my Downton Abbey table in the kitchen.  It is FABULOUSLY
 helpful for making jam.  And it cost around $200. 
Lots of beautiful old books...especially French ones
 these vintage French flashcards
 they have the best old farm paintings, here is one of my favorites,
and little occasion tables and beautiful tool boxes
and cute little stools...actually...
I've gotten multiple perfectly distressed stools.
and lighting...
lots and lots of lighting...it is one of my favorite spots to find the
"perfect" chandelier for my clients.

And last but certaining not least, the piece I have been searching
for years to find....
an old screen door for my laundry room-

read more about it here!

 It's worth a trip! 
They're open all this weekend from 10am-6pm.
See you there and
Happy Birthday Sweet!

  7. Wow I wish they were here. I would be going there everyday with prices like that table. You have the door I have been looking for to go in my pantry.
    Checked out your corn relish recipe and I may try it.

  11. I came to read your end of summer post and realized I'd missed this post. Wow, I wish I was much closer to Phoenix (although I once was) so I could visit Sweet Salvage too. Of all your purchases, I'm most impressed with your laundry room screen door--probably because I've been looking for one for my pantry door for almost ten years! (Yes, I love your other finds too!)
