The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Go Gallery-Hopping in Sarasota


4. Insider’s Tip

Local artists rely on Sarasota Architectural Salvage as a one-stop shop for props, materials, and inspiration.  

Follow local design junkies to the Sarasota Architectural Salvage (closed Sundays), a 10,000-square-foot warehouse stacked with one-of-a-kind remnants rescued from demolished or endangered historic buildings. Here, you’ll find raw cypress beams from the 1926 John Ringling Hotel, enormous crystal chandeliers from a Delaware theater, vintage copper fire extinguishers, stained glass windows from old churches, an armored car, and even a human-size hamster wheel.
