Today Olde Good Things has evolved to become one of the largest architectural antique dealers in the country. Our four stores and two warehouses contain an impressive inventory of olde good things totaling more than 250,000 square feet of merchandise. Our inventory is sourced largely from pre-depression and late nineteenth century buildings. We salvage these original precious items to make them available to collectors and designers who can put them to good use. We began by "dumpster diving" and finding unique architectural items in the trash. As we grew we began working with demolition contractors and became known and our salvage crews were able to retrieve artifacts from notable buildings such as the Flatiron Building, the New York Times Building, the Plaza Hotel and many more renowned locations continuing to today.
