The Architectural Salvage of Greensboro (ASG) retail showroom at 300 Bellemeade Street (the intersection of Commerce & Bellemeade streets) contains fascinating merchandise including vintage claw foot tubs, old sinks, brass hardware, doors, windows, shutters, pressed metal ceilings, hardwood flooring, columns, stair railings, bath and sink hardware, chandeliers, and wall light fixtures recycled from historic homes and buildings throughout North Carolina's piedmont.
ASG is a nationally recognized, non-profit volunteer project of Preservation Greensboro, Incorporated, with support from the City of Greensboro. The project is to rescue and recycle materials from historic structures when they are remodeled or demolished, and return profits to the community through a grant program for historic residences. Volunteer S.W.A.T. (Saving Worn Architectural Treasures) teams*, supervised by volunteer professionals, carefully retrieve authentic materials from buildings. Donors may claim a tax deduction for charitable contributions. Salvaged materials are lightly cleaned and prepared for retail sale at the showroom.
The Architectural Salvage of Greensboro showroom is open Fridays 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. or by appointment.
For more information call 336-389-9118 or email us.
