Post and Beam Reclamation Ltd.

Doug Killaly

Post + Beam moved out of Toronto and away from our bricks and mortar retail showroom in 2018.  However there have been hiccups along the road to digital.
The business is focused on salvaged building parts and garden ornament, but we cast a wider net for unique and arcane items.
We do not have an open showroom in Port Hope; however we welcome your inquiries as we transition to our new operation, and
if you’re in town please call ahead for the 50 Peso tour of our new warehouse.
E-mail or call us (voice or text message) to allow us time to clean up and boil water for tea.
Merchandise arrives regularly from interesting sources near and afar.
We welcome inquiries and look forward to acquainting if we aren’t known to you already.
Please contact us to request other images and/or details of item(s) you see. Peace to you, Doug.

2.  RARE A Pair of 8 Inch Round Cast Iron Registers with Louvers

Item Price: $175 for pair

Item Description: Round registers are scarce and pairs of them are exponentially more so.
I’m posting this partly because somebody asked me recently if I had a pair of 8 inch rounds. I laughed at his question then less than a week later I found these in a decrepit box. I’m eating boiled crow now, the taste is familiar.
Also I just decided to show something I sell that has great utility but little curb appeal. While this is patently obvious, I still thought I should explain my position. Questions, anybody?

Perhaps check “Under Kilimanjaro” for some mention of it.
