Architectural Artifacts
The success of Architectural Artifacts sprang from our desire to save our precious architectural heritage from the wrecking ball and make it available for reuse in remodelings and new construction. Our unique and unusual merchandise is primarily, but not limited to, a very large assortment of architectural antiques and garden elements. Items here are a small sampling of our vast inventory.
Architectural Artifacts

Toledo Architectural Artifacts since 1994 has been in the business of reclamation.    We save useful, reusable items from the landfill or scrap yard, which then helps customers renovate, restore & build anew. 

Happy Birthday to US! On April 1st, Toledo Architectural Artifacts' store turned 19 yrs old.  It's hard to believe it has been so much stuff in & out of the store. Because we have so much inventory that needs to be moved to make room for more vintage toilets, sink, tubs &  antique doors, we have selling off all our antique Victorian era turned cedar porch posts & simple wooden columns that fill up a lot of space upstairs in the store at huge discounts (crating/shipping not incl in the discounted pricing). Most are mismatched or some possible pairs...please contact us for options.

  • Victorian posts are 35.00 - 50.00 each.
  • Smooth cedar porch columns (with, w/o tops or bottoms) start at 20.00 - 50.00.

Also, if you are a local customer, or a visitor to our store, you know we have 4 cats here as full time residents. All have been rescues. So we help support a No Kill Shelter here in Toledo known as Paws and Whiskers. We take donations for them in the store...but now we are posting a link to their site. If you are a cat lover, please think about donating to them. They are not a large place that receives tons of money like the Humane Society. Paws and Whiskers need all the help they can get. So please think about helping them out. Just click here DONATE TO PAWSANDWHISKERS.ORG to do so & help save a deserving little animal. Your donation (no matter what size) is really appreciated.
