Employee Favorites at Sara’s House
It may not be for everyone, but if you’re a lover of industrial carts, pocket doors, barn wood, antique medicine cabinets and pretty much anything cast iron or metal, you’re a lover of salvage. As I write this blog I look around my home and see corrugated metal walls, a 120 year door acting as facing for our kitchen island and a giant light up arrow; that once hung at amusement park, now hanging from the ceiling in our family room. If you’ve ever looked up while driving west on High Street perhaps you’ve seen it thru our window. Our house is layered with texture and fabrics. I love plants and fresh flowers and how it all pairs up with touches of eclectic and modern. But underneath it all, you’ll find a pretty solid foundation of salvaged goods.
A couple of years ago we hosted our first Salvage Saturday. We invited some favorite vendors and collectors to set up outside the shop and brought out a few of our own finds as well. This month we are so excited to have the Cincy Book Bus joining us! If you have never seen a vintage bus in pristine condition pull up and instantly transform itself into a little book store you’re missing out! Once again we’ll be pulling out antique ceiling tiles, old doors, windows, furniture and miscellaneous great items from our workshop. Between the Book Bus and our collected treasures, the sidewalk outside our shop should look pretty inviting! Speaking of that, you’re all invited to join us, Saturday, July 13th, 10 to 4pm for Salvage Saturday!
Join us for another Salvage Saturday at Sara’s House. We will fill the sidewalk on high street in Hamilton with some amazing, one of a kind finds! We’ve hosted this event a few times now, and there’s always new, unique items to bring out. We will have a pop up with Donna Hansen, a local pottery maker. The Hamilton Flea will also be going on that Saturday, so don’t forget to walk two blocks towards the river and shop the flea!
Here’s some photos of past Salvage Saturday items…
We started to carry women's clothing this past month! One of our featured brands is FashionABLE.
ABLE is a lifestyle brand focused on ending generational poverty by working with women who have often overcome extraordinary circumstances. We manufacture directly in the communities we wish to impact, both locally and globally, creating jobs and ending the cycle of charity dependency.
We also carry some other clothing brands, so stop on in and see what's new! Open Monday- Friday 10-6 & Saturday 10-4.
