We’re a little late posting this (it was snowing at the time), but an intrepid passer-by took this shot of our mobile showroom at Broadway and 10th Street in New York City.
If you get to Manhattan, keep your eyes peeled for our truck.
We often come across building generators, compressors, etc., during our salvage escapades… And being The Table People, own lots of, and have lots of experience with, woodworking equipment, table saws… so we’ve been ramping up our machinery offerings recently. Visit themachinerypeople.com to see what we have online so far, or if you’re looking for anything, let us know!
Good news for our bi-coastal and west coast customers… We’ve opened a new location right in the heart of West Los Angeles. This prime location is at the 405 and W. Olympic Blvd. As a matter of fact you can see us directly from the 405 Freeway between the Santa Monica Blvd and Olympic Blvd exits, right next to the Marshalls Department Store. We’re loading the store up now as we do some finishing touches – and a fresh container of new olde merchandise is on its way. All the original architectural treasures and altered antiques you’ve always wished you could find on the West Coast! Come on in for our pre-grand opening – we’re open for business even though we’re still fixing the place up. You’ll see our famous flashing star right out the large scale store front windows. Come and get first dibs on all our amazing Olde Good Things. Design and trade discounts are available, as at all our locations!

Here you find original copper clad window frames from the historic Flatiron Building in New York City located between 22nd and 23rd Street and 5th Avenue and Broadway. Said to be the oldest standing skyscraper in New York, the Flatiron was designed by famous Chicago architect Daniel Burnham. These 100 year old windows are now transformed into lovely reconditioned mirrors, made from sustainable materials. Each mirror is sold with a sticker stating the authenticity of these frames. Copper clad window-framed mirrors are also available from other famous NYC buildings, such as the Toy Building, Cooper Union University and the McAlprin House (Herald Square). Take a look… sizes vary… call (888-233-9678) or email for more information.
For those of you who love the look of vintage glass, take a look at our new site featuring salvaged glass which can no longer be found newly made. From corrugated chicken wire glass to wavy plate glass you’ll find it all here. We even mirror olde glass to give it the look of distressed mirror a hundred years old. Take a look!
In our last post, you saw our recent acquisition of wooden planks and beams from the Coney Island Boardwalk. Here’s a bench made from these salvaged planks of Brazilian walnut also known as Ipe. We used old iron stock as well to make a truly altered antique.
Also… more from the Table People… we have a unique line of industrial style tables with machine base legs and rustic white pine as well as breadboard oak tops. Here is just a sample.
The famous Coney Island Pier has long been in need of repair. Recently the City approved plans to replace the original pier and boardwalk. The material used for this project was a Brazilian hardwood called Ipe – a unique durable rain forest wood perfect for decking and outdoor use. The city was glad to see the pier salvaged and put to green use. It is now available for sale reworked or in its original condition with its natural ocean-weathered gray patina. It is available as decking, in an outdoor furniture line or as unusual table tops. You can have a piece of New York City history right in your home with the purchase of one of our unique altered antiques… straight from the Coney Island Boardwalk.
We realize from calls we’ve received that some of you had gotten the wrong idea about our fire last year and thought our whole business burned down. Fortunately it was our second smaller warehouse in Scranton that burned.
We still have our really huge warehouse in Scranton that you can visit, though of course we lost a lot of fine architectural items such as stained glass, mantels and furniture.
Thank you very much for your business. We really appreciate everyone’s concern.
