Weekend in San Francisco and JUNK HEAVEN!!!

Mr. Smith and I took off for the weekend to San Francisco to celebrate our 18th Anniversary!  Our goal was to go to different places where we hadn't been before.   So Friday we headed to Oakland and visited the Habitat for Humanity Restore.  Let's just say I impressed my hubby by finding that store.  It was so fun to walk around and look at all the windows, doors, sinks...... 
Saturday was spent in San Francisco exploring the Mission District and Cow Hollow. 
Sunday Mr. Smith located an architectural salvage store in Berkeley as we were headed back home.....Prepare for tons of photos....if you don't like junk than you can stop reading now.....

Can I just say JUNK HEAVEN!
Ohmega Salvage in Berkeley,CA!
I could hardly wait till Mr. Smith parked the car before I jumped out to explore!
They had 2 locations right across the street from each other!

Bath tub anyone?

Oh to have this sink!
Awesome scale!

Love those columns!

Me-like a kid in a candy store!

Yep, I am that girl that is beyond happy to spend her 18th Anniversary with her sweetie at a salvage yard!

Did we come home with anything?

Of course!

We picked out an old 5 panel door and 2 metal railings that we are going to remake into an outside buffet table to put next to the bbq.  Oh you think it's for Mr. Smith?  Well actually I am the Grill Master at our house (yes Mr. Smith can cook too).  I have been wanting an outside counter/table.  Once this is repainted and put together it should work out great for buffets. 


  1. That looks like an awesome store!! I could have spent hours there.
    You and your husband look like you are having a wonderful time "junking" at the salvage yard on your anniversary.

  2. Oh my gosh! I would be in HEAVEN to go there! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a good salvage store! Looks like you had a great time! ;o) ~mary~

    Would love to just get in my car, (u-haul trailer attached!) and head down your way. =)
