A great find

Front Royal is one of those wonderfully small towns in Virginia that has been caught in time.  I love to go there on a Sunday morning and browse around the flea market (one of the best in my book) and then go and have coffee on Main Street.  While I was there a few months ago I stumbled across an amazing architectural salvage store tucked back in a little alley.  It has apparently been there for years but was taken over in January by the nicest couple, Pat and Valentina.  They are so passionate about their store and love to tell the history of every piece they have lovingly restored.  It is jam packed with windows, doors, stained glass, bathtubs, door knobs and drawer pulls, tools, columns, the list goes on and on.  If you are ever in the area please stop by and take a look - they are located at:

Architectural Old House Parts
