Architectural salvage store set to open | Business
Tarpon Springs, Florida -- It's not really an antique shop, but it could be the perfect place to shop if you're in the market for antique doors, windows or other architectural items for your home.
The owner of Tampa Bay Salvage plans to open his new store on North Pinellas Avenue in Tarpon Springs on Aug. 1.
Josh White has quite a bit of experience in the field of architectural salvage. His family owns a similar business in New Jersey called Recycling the Past. They appeared on the Discovery Channel "Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe" and had their own shows on the DIY Network called "Operation Salvage".
If you scan Tampa Bay Salvage's online store, you'll get an idea of what kind of treasures that will be available: clawfoot tubs, stained glass windows, wrought iron gates and fences, even an English telephone book.
