As of April 1st, the modern-day treasure hunters at Philadelphia Salvage have
a new location on West Westmoreland Street in North Philly’s Nicetown
area. According to the shop’s Retail Sales Manager Allan, the move was
motivated by a need for a larger centralized area—it seems they simply
outgrew the old spot over on Carpenter Lane in West Mount Airy. Now,
visitors can stake claims on antique lighting fixtures, reclaimed
industrial furniture and architectural salvage at the five-year-old
company’s whopping 30,000-square-foot foundry, which was previously
only used by the masterminds at Philly Salvage for storage, repurposing
and carpentry work.
