If you are looking for building items at a great price, try Second Chance Warehouses located just at the end of Route 295 as you enter Baltimore from the south on Warner Street. They deconstruct buildings and homes, salvage usable materials and make those available to the public. You can explore their diverse inventory available in 4 warehouses. You’re bound to discover some truly unique and unexpected items.
In addition to selling an unbelieveably diverse inventory, Second Chance accepts tax-deductible donations of fixtures and architectural details you’ve removed from your own place and want to recycle.
Today Charlie and I made two purchases. We bought these cabinet doors for $20. The larger one was marked $15 and the smaller one $10 but they let us have both for $20. We found them ready to deal on most everything in stock.
We’ve got plans for these.
They have hundreds (may be thousands) of doors of every imaginable type and size. This exterior solid wood door with nine lights was marked $60 in March,
$52 in April, and $45 in May.
When we asked could they let it go for $35, the answer was yes.
If you wanted to shop all four warehouses on the same day you would really need some stamina. My suggestion is to go with your wish list in hand and just start looking. There’s sooooooo much to see and it’s easy to forget what you’ve come for because everything is so interesting. If you have something very specific (like a bird’s-eye window) you can ask if they have it or call ahead to inquire.
I’m getting my inventory list ready and will be heading down to Second Chance again and again. The hunt is part of the fun. Where do you go for a first class bargain?
