Weekend Events - September 8th & 9th

A few events of note to WPAers this coming weekend:

Brownstoner's Salvage Fest 2007
Washington & Greene
Saturday, 8 September
10 am to 4 pm
On Saturday, September 8 (September 9 if it's raining), all the architectural salvage dealers in the New York City area will be coming together in the school yard of PS 11 in Clinton Hill (at Washington and Greene Avenues) from 10 am to 4 pm to serve up a delicious array of old building parts, fixtures and lighting. Who will be there? Williamsburg's own Moon River Chattel, Chelsea's (by way of Scranton) Olde Good Things, Harlem's Demolition Depot, Astoria's Build It Green, Clinton Hill's Eddie's Salvage, and Bed Stuy's Reclaimed Home; Philly-based Old Soul Architectural Salvage and Virginia-based Architectural Salvage News will also be in the house. In addition, Build It Green will have a drop-off station for recycling any odd building materials you may have lying around so bring over that box of tiles that's been taking up space in your basement since you finished you bathroom renovation five years ago! ... Admission is free—as are Brownstoner bumper stickers for the first 100 people to show up.
