Salvage Creations

Rich and Peg create unique creations out of salvage and will customize using your specifications. Our client list is growing and includes the Fin Restaurant at the Tropicana in Atlantic City, Angel by the Sea B&B in Cape May, Show House at the Shore (Designer Houses for the Shapiro Cancer Foundation), and the New Jersey State Fair Recycle/Reuse Exhibit. Some examples. . . Rich makes coat/hat and “what-not” racks using vintage door knobs, hooks made from silverware, old hooks, latches and knobs, etc. There are examples shown below ($30 and up). He customizes them using cabinet doors and salvage wood and a variety of hardware. He also makes mirrors out of old broken windows. Prices range from $125 and up. Rich also makes beautiful chimes, key rings, jewelry, and hooks from vintage silverware. Every piece of jewelry is different so it is hard to display it online so you can pick. He can even make things out of your Grandmother's silver just for you. Please come into our store if you can, and if not, email us and we can send you some recent pics that you can choose from.

Peg designs and creates customized mosaics, "bling chairs", and toy boxes. She uses vintage salvage materials for the base (mirrors, shutters, wood paneling, produce boxes, chairs) and used/found materials such as books, toys, jewelry, china, and shells for the embellishment. Each piece is unique and creatively reuses materials and keeps them out of our landfills. Below are some examples. One is a memorabilia mirror and was created for two sisters whose parents had both passed away. Everyone has items and “memories” that you don't want to throw away, but why keep them hidden in a drawer? Her customized mosaic “growth” charts ("Growing Green") for new babies reuse small mementoes from the child's family such as toys, blocks, or jewelry. The piece is personalized with the child's name and birth date. A marking pen and holder are designed into the chart to note the height and date measured(a great alternative from marking on the door jams!). Prices vary on how ornate you want the piece and how many items you provide. The average price range starts about $45 for small mosaic collages, $75-$125 for a chair or toy box, $230 and up for a growth chart, and $295 and up for a large complex memorabilia mirror. Feel free to call us and discuss your ideas and requests! Every project is different and can be as small or large as you want.
