Who loves searching for treasures? ME!
Who loves searching for super cool old treasures?!
ME! ME! ME!
I grew up with a dad that loved old signs, old wood, old tools, and old rusty yard décor. In fact, he still loves old things, especially old barn wood that he has recently started making into THESE beautiful tables. But anyway, what I’m getting at is this- I LOVE old findings. My dad’s love for old treasures definitely rubbed off on me.
Meet Pat Bar. She’s one of the proud owners of Urban Salvage.
Urban Salvage JUST opened (well actually it’s not officially open until October 1st) but she’s had her doors open for a few days now and is allowing people to browse. See, look at what I HEART FRESNO does for you!?! We’re checking out new digs and telling you about them BEFORE they’re even officially open! This means you could go check it out before the store is officially official! You’re a big deal now, you’re VIP now. You confused yet?? I am. So I’ll stop.
Let’s talk about what Urban Salvage is. It’s a huge warehouse FULL of old treasures (much like Yoshi Now). The owner, Pat, loves old things, too. She loves to collect old findings from all around the world. She told us that when she was younger she told her father she was going to own a store one day devoted to her love for collectables. She took us around the store, showing us some of her latest inventory with a huge grin on her face. It’s so enjoyable to see someone do something they love to do. It makes life so rich.
I had Chance come along with me and snap some pictures while I looked around and chatted with Pat. Check out this place. You need to go there. Seriously.
I’m 97% sure Chance and I are going back to purchase these old lockers. How cool are they?!
I love the words on the poster. I’m alllll about using our resources.
So, are you gonna go check it out??!! You’ve got to. Don’t wanna go alone?? Then why don’t you come to the Creative Fresno blender October 1st because Urban Salvage is hosting it! Who wouldn’t want to meet new people in a cool, old warehouse?! Come on, people. This is real. This is Fresno. Let’s get excited.
