If you ever have a birthday party held at a salvage yard, don’t take it the wrong way. In fact, if you’re lucky enough to have it at Earthwise Architectural Salvage, you should feel pretty special. Now, event rental space isn’t their primary calling – it’s actually the reclamation and resale of significant architectural pieces and parts from buildings that are being torn down. Their SODO location (they just opened a new store in Tacoma) is stuffed to the gills with one-of-a-kind pieces – when I was there they had a full-size nickel plated copper bathtub – something I have definitely never seen. You’ll also find beautiful chandeliers, crystal door knobs, antique dentist chairs and so much more. You really do feel like you’ve been transported back in time.
Enjoy your treasure hunt (or birthday party)!
