Architectural Salvage: Sprouts Farm

Last year, Nikki and Steve Wooster-Goodwin pooled their efforts and opened Sprouts Farm, New Hampshire's pre-eminent architectural salvage firm. Located in Lancaster, Sprouts Farm's enormous barn contains such must-have-them gems as:

  • a whole bunch of clawfoot bathtubs
  • previously built-in cabinetry and shelving
  • pottery crocks, all the way to 30 gallon monsters
  • potbelly wood stoves and coal stoves
  • pedestal & apron-front sinks
  • glass insulators of all types and colors
  • enormous piles of books
  • blue and other decorative glass
  • a wide selection of vintage hardware, including doorknobs, hinges and pulls
  • glass lamp shades in too many types and sizes to list
  • floor grates, vents and registers in iron and brass
  • a constantly-changing stock of furniture
  • an extensive range of interior & exterior doors
  • more china than you could shake a half-dozen sticks at
  • one of the largest stocks of ceramic, wood and metal scottie dogs anywhere

Obviously, should you be anywhere nearby, it would be in your best interest to visit Nikki & Steve. Until you get there, you can take the virtual tour and just pretend. And of course, as always, tell them you read about their shop here on Hewn & Hammered.
