Ashley Grant recommended Sarasota Architectural Salvage as a possible source for two pairs of “antique” early-to-mid 1800s style exterior gate strap hinges Im hoping to purchase for Rosslyn. And Elaine Miller, a friend and contractor whos painted, refinished and tiled Rosslyn over the last couple of years recommended Ball and Ball Antique Hardware or Van Dykes Restorers. I’ve also stumbled across Snug Cottage Hardware and 360 Yardware…

Tomorrow I’ll continue my search. Any other great suggestions?

    Thanks for the shout-out of 360 Yardware! Much appreciated! We’re definitely more geared to contemporary and modern in the style of hardware we offer, but love seeing stout, well-made hardware whatever the style!

      Thanks, Jana. We’re currently renovating another considerably more modern property in the Southwest. Perhaps we’ll be able to use your products!
