Match Your Antique Hardware at Olde Good Things

Antique hardware has a style that can’t be matched by anything you find at the local hardware store today. This custom look is what makes your antique door knobs, drawer pulls, or reclaimed architectural pieces so distinctive and beautiful.

If you have ever needed to replace a piece of hardware from a vintage or antique item, you know that they also come with their own unique set of problems. Screws are the wrong size. Elements don’t match up correctly. Some parts are almost impossible to find. If you DO happen to find something the right size, shape, and color in a contemporary store, you end up losing the character and quality that made your piece so special in the first place.

The good news is, Olde Good Things carries an immense selection of antique hardware, and we always have the customer in mind. We want to match your custom style with the perfect element for the piece’s age, color, and texture. And, if we can’t match the old hardware, we will help you find something better in our extensive treasure trove.

In order to find your ideal hardware replacement, follow a few simple steps.

1. Remove the hardware you want to replace from the existing fixture.

2. Measure the length, width, and diameter of each part.

3. Email us at [email protected] with the measurements, clear resolution photos, and the desired quantity and we will do our best to match it. We are happy to work with you on finding the perfect style or finish in the event that you are open to a new look.

4. Please be patient with our staff to do a search. A custom search can take up to a week to perform.

Here are several types of hardware items we have in stock online: Applique, Door knob sets, Door knobs, Door pulls, Closers, Levers, Door Locks, Hinges, Knockers & Door Bells, Back plates, Rosettes, Pocket Door, Push plates, Mail Slots, Keyhole covers, Cabinet & Furniture, Casters, Curtain Hardware, Elevator Hardware, Finials, Locks, Hooks and Racks, Ice Box Hardware, Lighting Hardware, Railing Hardware, Bottle Stoppers, Shelf Brackets, Snow Guards & Window Hardware.
