This past weekend my wife and I booked a weekend get away in historic Galena IL, close to there is Dubuque Ia. where we discovered a warehouse of deconstructed homes, you name it they got it, stair cases, door, windows, trim, tin tiles, lamps, church items, sinks, tubs etc.
It was a fun place to look around and a good source for any rehab or construction project, the staff there was helpful and fun to talk with about the items for sale.
Located in the same building (a huge old factory) are the headquarters of Resa James Homes, she is designing and importing one of a kind furniture made from exotic woods that are hand carved, there is an interesting story with every piece of art and furniture she sells and is happy to talk about it.
If you ever get in the tri-state area check it out. Nice people to do business with.
