the door store
This weekend we also finally got to The Door Store - a place in Toronto that we've been meaning to get to the second we got the keys to our house. An architectural salvage place, this store is chock full of antique fixtures, door knobs, doors and pretty much anything else you might be missing from your period home. Ours was built in the early 1920's and most of our doors still have the original doorknob key plates etc but some of them have gone missing over the years. Thanks to these guys, we were able to pick up a pile of the exact same ones we have in our house! We also need a new front exterior door and think that we'll have to make another trip and pick one of these beauties.
