Default Antiques people- interior doors?

Anybody know a good shop that sells antique interior doors and other house salvage items?

I'm after a 36x80" RH swing interior door with beveled or leaded glass. Also, interested in fireplace mantel and a bar.

Habitat for Humanity has a store at Hubbard and Groesbeck in Mt Clemens that often has stuff like that.

I don't know if they are still there Chris, but there was a really cool architecture salvage place like that in Grass Lake. They had hundreds of old doors, trim work, plaster medallions, etc... Don't even remember what the name of the place was. But it was right in downtown on the south side of the main street.

I've been there, and was given a tour by the owner. Extremely cool stuff. He has plenty of 100+ year old barn doors (hinged, sliding, all different sizes and shapes) and leaves the original hardware and hand made handles on them, to sell them as they are, or as they were removed. There was not much in the way of interior house doors though. If you want something made from old barn wood, reclaimed wood, or something along those lines, then its the place to go. I have his card around here somewhere, but cant find it right now. I can get the name and number and post it later.

This place is cool. Stopped in there one day while working, they had a ton of old interior doors, weren't cheap but I'm sure if I haggled they would have come down a bunch. I was just browsing but they had some door I wish I bought. Solid pine 1 or 2 panel doors with brass hardware and mortised lock sets. I wish I bought them cause they were wicked sweet.

The place in Grass Lake is still there and I think its called Architectural Salvage. The owner is a really good guy and his prices are fair too. They have 100's of doors and other items. Its a fun place to wander around in.

You can try materials unlimited in Ypsilanti. Never been in there but have seen some pretty cool stuff while passing by.

I'll give a fourth for them. I went and checked it out last year when I was redoing my den and looking for some stuff. The inventory you see on their website is just a fraction of what they actually have and that inventory changes quite a bit to.
