This weekend, Preservation Rocky Mount is opening up a warehouse full of architectural salvage to the public, in their biggest sale of the year. The three-day sale is June 15-17, 2018 at 910 Falls Road, Rocky Mount, North Carolina.

The architectural salvage sale hours are:

  • Friday, June 15 @ 7am-5pm
  • Saturday, June 16 @ 7am-5pm
  • Sunday, June 17 @ noon-5pm

During the sale, prices are going to be “phenomenal” according to a person in-the-know helping organize the sale items. Preservation Rocky Mount’s main goal with these salvaged items is to save them — not let them be destroyed or discarded. Stop by and see things you may not see available again anytime soon.

Salvaged items range from small hardware to large pieces that won’t fit in every home. In addition to what you would expect — windows, reclaimed wood, doors, tiles, and flooring — there will be old bathtubs and sinks, decorative pillars, shutters, mantles, chandeliers, and a collection of “precious items” that were saved as they were removed from historic homes in NC.  Preservation Rocky Mount is ready to bargain just to get these items to new homes.

Salvaged items aren’t just for those restoring historic homes. Add a little character to your younger home, find unique items to spice up your decor, or pick up DIY project supplies. Build a greenhouse out of windows, or turn an old door into an art piece, or use old hardware to…. well, whatever DIY project you can imagine. Come and check out the potential “materials”.

The parking lot can handle vehicles with trailers, and most trucks, so bring a vehicle sized for the purchases you plan to make. Purchased items need to be paid for an carried away during the sale weekend.

Preservation Rocky Mount is a nonprofit organization chartered in 1997 to preserve buildings, sites, and properties of historical or architectural importance within the city of Rocky Mount and Nash and Edgecombe counties. The organization is supported by dues-paying members. Ask about membership during the sale if you’d like to be a part of their ongoing work.

If you just can’t get to the salvage sale, Preservation Rocky Mount runs a salvage store at the Falls Road location that will be open other days of the year; however, with the current inventory the pickin’s will be best during the June 15-17 sale.
