January 11, 2018: Arrived: shipment of colonial era school desks (not ship salvage), a few bits of architectural salvage (also not ship salvage) and some ship's steamer trunks (ship salvage)...  These items have been found and purchased over the past few years on our annual buying trips and until now there had not been room in any of the containers to fit all the bits and pieces...  Then after this year's trip we had enough to fill a container so here it is! 

**NOTE TO ALL ON OUR EMAIL LIST; due to the fact that most of the items in this shipment were NOT ship salvage, we did not send out a mass email in an effort to not confuse anyone waiting on ship salvage purchased on our last buying trip...  Those shipments are still anticipated to begin arriving around March/April 2018...  Stay tuned...

Available items will read "available" under the photo; otherwise, that piece has been sold.
Please call or e-mail for pricing and availability.
