In the shade of a giant oak tree in downtown Houston, is one of the best architectural salvage resources in the country, Adkins Architectural Antiques . Since I had a "free pass" on Mother's Day last weekend, I asked my family to join me on a downtown adventure that included my camera and Adkins.
Every inch of this lovely old house from 1912 and warehouse, is filled with garden elements, architectural salvage, hardware, lighting, mantels, doors, tubs, shutters and a third floor attic that you should only brave during cooler months.
This is just a small peek at their huge inventory. You're sure to find that special vintage element to add to your home at Adkins. Their garden inventory is wonderful with many affordable pieces as well as high end European one of a kinds. They also have a woodshop on the premises and can repair or create almost anything you can imagine. If you've never been, I know you'll love it as much as I do.
