Fixing up an old house or looking to replace a window or a door or a sink?
Why not take a look around the Knox Heritage Salvage Shop at 619 N. Broadway (tucked into the west side of Broadway in the long block between Old Gray Cemetery and Central Avenue)?
Don’t plan on a quick in and out, even if you’re looking for a specific item. Allow some time to poke around.
“We’re known for our doors and windows,” said Tracee Fitzpatrick, coordinator of the shop. “We’re the first place people come because of our prices.”
Fitzpatrick said her current favorite piece is a bar made of reclaimed barn wood, funky up cycled metal and pieces of the kind of zinc-lined Coca Cola cooler that used to be found in old country stores.
You might discover that you need a grand piano or a pink Formica and chrome mid-century modern dinette table or a couple of art deco milk glass light fixtures. There’s a lot to see in this little store.
Knox Heritage Salvage Shop is open noon to five p.m. Wednesday through Friday and Saturdays 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Contact by phone at 865-313-2111, or by messenger @TheKnoxHeritageSalvageRoom.
Knox Heritage members get a 10 percent discount and the store’s non-profit status tax credits for the value of the merchandise. Volunteer help is always welcome, Fitzpatrick said.
