Donate & Shop Items

Instead of throwing out your old door or sink, why not make a tax-deductible donation to the Salvage Barn? Buying salvaged items helps keep them out of the landfill and saves you money. 

By donating, you'll help keep our operations alive, preserve valuable historic items, and keep materials out of the landfill. Thank you!
