The Preservation Salvage Store was established in 2007 in order help preserve the historic architecture and identity of New Orleans. Materials from houses that have been deconstructed are donated to the store and resold at a reduced and affordable price to the community. Through the efforts of the salvage store, countless architectural features have been recycled into the historic housing stock of New Orleans, thus preserving our important cultural heritage.
Among the rows and rows of items, it's possible to find windows, doors, columns, brackets and wrought iron railing, among many other treasures.
In addition, the salvage store plays an important role in the "greening" of New Orleans. Saved from the landfill, these items offer an environmentally sound option for rebuilding and revitalizing local homes. Rather than building new, the salvage store promotes reinvestment in the city's current housing stock. The greenest building is the one already built!
Proceeds from items sold in the Preservation Salvage Store support Rebuilding Together New Orleans, Operation Comeback, and the other programs of the Preservation Resource Center.
These are some of the many wonderful items currently on sale at our Salvage Store. Please click the images for more information.
