Merchandise & Showroom:

We mostly sell originals and much of our stock is rare or one-of-a-kind.  We do not have a showroom. We ask that you tell us exactly what you’re looking for so that we can identify it from our large inventory of authentic fixtures, materials and hardware.  We may press you for specifics to make sure it’s appropriate to your project. That means you can have confidence you’ve bought exactly the right thing.
